Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Brandon Manitoba and originally, I started out searching for my ancestors. Then recently, I decided to take photos of all the headstones on our local cemetery - which meant adding all the "residents" in also - this has turned into a full blown obsession and every weekend finds me stomping around the cemetery taking photos of headstones - a wonderful hobby.
My family tree is extensive, but my main lines are Montgomery, Barton, Rixon, and Nicholson.

RE: Gay Smith
Her parents were originally from Manitoba and I believe they lived in Brandon after they were married. They moved to Vancouver in 1948.

I don't really know much more - what I have was found on-line.

Thanks Janet!

You might be interested to know that this baby came from a long line of United Empire Loyalists and her mother wrote a book on the family history.

RE: Gay Smith
Thanks for the transfer Janet! I will try to get her linked to her parents eventually.

Is your permission to use the photo on my tree implied in the transfer?

Evemy Family
Hi Janet - Thank you very much for posting this information Gustav Evemy was my Great Grandfather, Charles was my Great Uncle and Arthur was my Granny's brother who died at 5 months old. I also had Bellhouse family members in Brandon as well - Charles and Caroline Bellhouse immigrated to Aweme Manitoba in the 1880's from Tadcaster Yorkshire England - They were neighbors of the Criddles/Vane families. They were the Post Masters of the Aweme Post Office. Charles and one of his daughters Susannah are also buried some where in and/or around Brandon. They died 1897 (Charles) and 1885 (Susannah).I believe both Gustav Evemy and Charles Bellhouse worked for the railroad and died on the job. Shortly after Gustav died both the Bellhouse and Evemy families moved to Vancouver BC. I live in Innisfil Ontario so if you need any photos from this area please let me know. Do you if there are any cemeteries that still are around for the older deaths and/or headstones or markers? Thanks again for your kindness !!!

Sudbury Al
RE: Alfred Francis Albert Coyne
Thanks for this. No, he is not a relative, but I have been researching his activities as he was an oil "boomer" in Alberta before coming to the Sudbury area to attempt an ill-fated coal-mining venture where there is no real coal. I will be producing two short articles later this year on Coyne for a local historical group and would be pleased to send copies when they are complete and published.
