Bio and Links
I live in Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada. I would be willing to do headstone photos for Hillside Cemetery.

Anyone has my permission to copy photos.

In the name of history I have photographed almost every headstone and posted them here for Pleasant St. Cemetery. All the headstones are now entered. There are some unidentified people and some unidentified headstones.
Some headstones have suffered damage over the years either by vandalism or lawn care and by posting them here they will last forever.
In the event that I have offended anyone with what I have posted and wish to have it removed, just ask and I will removed what you want.

Hi Terry, thanks for researching Donald. I was told which funeral home handled his arrangements, so I've sent them an email to see if they will at least acknowledge who his parents were as they've all passed now. I found this which is not official but fwiw it shows that Jacob and Nathaniel were brothers. -Lee

Thanks so much for your time and effort, getting photos of the Ottos grave markers. I take grave marker photos in Los Angeles, and I know about the work involved :)

RE: John Drake
Hi Terry, (This turned into quite a lengthy note!

You have the right John "Jack" Drake. After Jack and Marion divorced they both remarried. Jack married a woman named Joanne. I never knew her maiden name. Joanne had two sons, one named Michael, the other named Steven. Jack adopted the boys, who took his last name, shortly after he and Joanne married. She was Jack's only other wife. The name you mention as Jack's wife's name is incorrect. Jack and Joanne married in the early 70's and since they lived in Merritt we saw them quite often over the years. Jack and Joanne were married until he died. She was a nice gal and she made Jack very happy. Joanne was a terrific care giver when he suffered several debilitating strokes and was finally hospitalized at G.F. Strong Convalescent Hospital here in Vancouver.

The name you mention as Jack's second wife is not familiar to me, but I do know Jack was only married to Marion and to Joanne.

Jack's dad was indeed named Yates Drake. His wife (Jack's mother) was Esther Isherwood. Jack had two older sisters, Ruth and Mae and and an older brother named Harry who was a Rodeo Cowboy. Harry died in his early 20's. Jack told Tom that Harry died because he got kicked in the head by a horse. If you are a member of you can find a "Tom Drake Family Tree" I've worked on a bit (I'm doing my family tree as well.) I'm hoping to get my tree in really good shape and then I'll be able to devote more time to Tom's.

I hope I've answered your questions. Thanks again for putting up such a nice memorial for Tom's dad.
I know Tom would have loved it.

John "Jack" Drake
Hi Terry,
Thank you for posting the headstone for John "Jack' Drake. I am Jack Drake's daughter in-law. Jack was a wonderful man. My husband Tom was Jack's only birth child. Our sons Steven, Adam and Jono and their half-brother Tad adored their "Grampa Jack", and Tom and I both loved him with all our hearts. I'm so glad to have found the headstone honoring him and I can't thank you enough. The photo I posted was taken on October 24, 1934, the day Jack married Tom's mother Marion.
