Your very welcome.
|Lisa Tracey||Dobson Family Plot|
Hello, yesterday I went to Riverside Cemetery Office, had the staff look them up, the staff member and I went to their plot and it is unmarked. It is behind the De Grassi Celtic Cross tombstone. It is a big plot. When I go back I will leave a marker and take a photo for you. For now I added a photo of the cross to see the space behind where the Dobson-Flood plot is.
send the edits to my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org It is correct

Hi George, I didn't see another stone. If I think about it the next time I'm over there, I will get a picture of the name on the cement border. I couldn't get it in line with the headstone and forgot about it. Mary
|c.walker||Re william baker DOB|
This is a tough call...about his DOB.
The dec 1882 comes from a very long list of probate court recordings of births from 1882 thru april 1883, all hand entered.
william is # 7045 on that list. the birth above his was March 1883 and one below his name is, also, December 1882. All appear to be written by the same person, and all at same time... there were also noted on the pages various "corrections" placed on side columns.
The Death Certificate information was given by his wife, Marguerite, at the time of his death. This would be the August 1882 date for a birth date. We all know that men " dont give a whit" about their birthdays or dates.... so, did marguerite know the actual date or not?
It is a toss up, for sure. As i said, I would give both dates and let the reader decide which is the correct date/year.
Interesting case. I have found his mothers maiden name listed in various documents as : LOOSE, LOVE, LOSE, LORY,CLOSE AND LONG. so it gives an idea of what genealogists are up against.

|c.walker||re: william f. baker|
I agree about the more info, the better. i have connected some of my family simply by the addresess they lived at when they passed away. since i am in medical profession, i have been tracking medical histories of my extended family too. making a chart to see which members died of what ailment. has been fascinating. so much is incorrect on the written records... first you have to be able to read some of the scribbling on the hand written DCs or death registries.. and the older records, i am sure the info was given verbally, and there were many accents with immigrants...or inattentive info takers. i like to have 3 sources of info in which at least TWO of them agree on dates, etc. but this is impossible at times.. just give all the info you can, even conflicting, and let family searchers or genealogists figure it out. I feel we are doing a service, and i truly love to get things right. Love to get corrections also.
Thanks for help and response.

No problem. I liked the photos of family members you added. I like putting a face to the name.
