|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.

|Lee An||RE: DONALD ROBERT HAMMOND|
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. https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.2.1/M7VZ-Y12 -Lee

I went to Oshawa today & got your request for Simon but I see you have it but the request is still posted. Did you want another ?
Thanks for your help!
Thank you for taking the time to photograph James Alexander Comrie's resting place.
It is much appreciated.
Thank you so much for the time to do this

Thank you for the picture of his grave marker. Another piece of my family's puzzle in place.
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 :)
|Sally Gray Drake||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 Ancestry.ca 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.

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.

|Yolli||RE: Florence & William White|
When I was at the cemetery I did not write down who was beside Florence but from the list I have I can tell you that Julia Judy Seaman (1925-1970) is in plot 72 and Martha Landsiedel (1894-1973) is in plot 75. I don't know who is in plot 74. I also looked up the name Donna Hogarth and her name does not appear on the cemetery list. However, the list is not completely up to date. The cemetery office is very helpful so I suggest you contact them and they might be able to help you further 403-221-3660.
Sorry I couldn't be of more help,
