Bio and Links
I am interested in preserving information and in providing stone photos where possible. I am flexible and like it when others are the same, particularly in adding requested information and also in linking to family members.
My transfer rules are generous if the memorials are outside my family members.

RE: Brick St. Cemetery
Amazing---truly amazing and fascinating. I do go to the London Room from time to time---usually to look up people in the cemetery binders. Arthur has been a great help to me---the ladies seem a bit 'edgy' so I tend to soldier on myself if they are on duty. I will certainly look up the books you mentioned and read your articles. I've done all your edits---we're all good!

Take care George!

RE: Griffith/Griffeth
George---I would probably leave them with the same spelling as on the headstones. You could add a note or add something brief in the bio. on the memorial stating that there is another spelling of the surname but that they are all related. If you did the slash it might affect how they come up in a search and then the confusion begins. On Eli's it says on the sheet in the photo that he was the only member of his family who used Griffeth---wonder why?


Good hunting!

RE: Griffith/Griffeth
Done, with pleasure! Take care of him for me George---I really love the oldies and especially as his photo was added it makes it more personal.

Take care!

photo request for Ocean View
Ocean View Burial Park, owned by Diginity Memorial, is a privately owned cemetery. Dignity Memorial will not give information to a third party, you must be a relative. They feel that they could be sued for release of private information. I have the email to prove this!!!!!
If you contact their office (through email) and request their location I would take a photo for you. They would be willing to do a lookup if the request came from a family member. If you cannot figure out your connection, say you are a cousin.
Once you have the location just enter it into the memorial page and it will show on the photo request.
Thank you,

RE: Hill
George, thanks for your messages, it made me go back and check my sources. I have edited Mary McAdams birth place to Scotland. On both the 1851 and 1861 census Mary gives her birth place as Scotland, this also appears on the death registration of their daughter Urania Hill (Stephenson).
Hope this answers some of your queries.

Walter Clark @ Ross Bay Cemetery
Hi again George
There is no marker for him either; note that his mother in law, Catherine McLeod, Find A Grave # 121314112, is buried just to the right (in the photo)of Walter Clark's grave. Please see the interactive geomap at

RE: Maylett
Thanks so much for all the digging and information.
Were you aware that Isaac Cranston, Robert's older brother also married an Agnes Alton? two brothers, Jeremiah and Valentine each had daughters named Agnes. Both Agnes' married a Cranston brother. Daniel Alton, the youngest of the Alton brothers married Caroline Cranston - do not know if she was a sister of these brothers. Daniel and Caroline moved to Michigan.
