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: Clara in Clarence Phillmore Cemetery
It may be a slightly different photo; I'm not sure. The one I deleted is in my recycle bin with hundreds of others and I can't tell which one it is without restoring it. I had the one I posted saved in my "Clarence Fillmore" files so I (re)posted what I had.

I went by there yesterday and noted that the Clara Welch stone is the only one in that plot with no others around it. I was unable to gather more data and the dates are illegible.

RE: Clara in Clarence Phillmore Cemetery
I was able to restore the photo. Looking at it, it does appear to say Clara "daughter of ____ Welch". This would lead one to believe she was never married and probably does not belong to the Schaffer family.

RE: Clara Shafer
Since you maintain the memorial, only you can delete it or, change the last name to Welch and unconnect everyone. I can't think of what else to do.

RE: Meredith
Hello, George. I am not just a Meredith "connection", but a direct descendant of Sir William Collis Meredith. He was my 2nd Great Grandfather. If you refer to his F/G memorial, you can click through the Quebec line to my Father, William Ross Mills, whose memorial is linked on my Profile page (or perhaps it would be best if you were to just work back from my Dad). If you are related to the London Merediths, there is a strong likelihood that we are distant cousins. :D

RE: Elizan 'Izza' Reeves Housman
In support of my 2xGGGM's date of birth:
London, England, Births and Baptisms, 1813-1906 (viewed & saved original image)
Name: Elizan Izza Maria Reeves
Record Type: Baptism
Baptism Date: 14 Feb 1824
[Birth date: 06 Nov 1823]
Father's name: Charles Reeves
Mother's name: Elizabeth Reeves
Parish or Poor Law Union: St Andrew Holborn
Borough: City of London
Register Type: Parish Registers
[retrieved via, April 06, 2015]

And my photo of her gravestone has March 7th, 1865 [although the image is dark and the lichen makes it difficult to read], as opposed to your Edit suggestion of March 4, 1868. Thanks for catching the 20-year typo though. :)

Izza died at the age of 41 years, of a hernia

Bowen memorials, Mount Hermon
Working again today on the Bowen family group and trying to capture all the updates you and Philip have sent me as SAC edits.

Thanks in particular for pointing out the typo in Izza's Memorial - she was my 2x Great-Grandmother, and I _should not_ have gotten that one wrong. LOL
All the best, :D / Beth

RE: John Archer Powell memorial
Thanks for your follow-up. Just knowing you pulled it from there is all I needed to hear. I agree that's a great source. I will go ahead and put your edits through.
