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.

Beginning Jan. 18, 2016, I will be away from my site periodically trying to deal with health issues. If I don't answer or respond righ away, you will know why. But I will answer ASAP.

RE: Richard Kimball
Thanks for getting back to me. I thought that maybe since my gr gr gr uncleRichard Kimball who had married a DeKay and was in his (your ancestors) wife's cemetery you might have info on your patriot. I assume you know that your line has proven to be Sons of American Revolution?

Richard Kimball
Hello, I hope this finds you well.
I am attempting to become a member of DAR. My ancestor patriot is Richard Kimball father of the Richard who is buried in the DeKay cemetery.My line is through Aaron who is brother to the Richard buried here. Aaron also lived in Orange County NY.
I am trying to find proof that the Patriot Richard is the actual father of these sons. (another was Thomas). He died intestate and though the Mass. records on line to show him as father at the birth of these sons that doesn't prove it is our Richard Patriot.
Your ancestors did prove to the Patriot Richard and I wonder if you have any knowledge I might use for my quest.
Thank you so much.

RE: Everitt - Farmer Cemetery, OH
I had planned to make the same request but glad you did. They were my GG Grandparents but still only need one memorial apiece. Also, thanks to your page for John I was able to find three more of his children and have sent edits to add them to yours.

Mount Royal Cemetery Photo Request
Mount Royal Cemetery has 165 acres. The burial plot location must be supplied so a volunteer can go take the photo.

You can get this free information by filling the form here: and in the "Desired Service" field, select "Burial Location (free)" and enter the information.

If the Genealogy page was not helpful then email your request to

The cemetery will email you the location (3-10 working days).

Have the memorial updated with the plot number.

You will have made it possible for the photo to be taken.

Yes there are more than one cemeteries in Nipawin. My records indicate that the first burial in Mable Hill Cemetery was in 1974 and George died in 1969 so he could be in Woodlawn Cemetery. I have not done much work in Woodlawn yet. It is a large cemetery and I haven't had the time to photograph that one yet. The town doesn't have a list as such of who is buried there, so pretty well have to go by the photos.

RE: Workman in Avondale, Stratrford
I saw William's memorial and read the bio section when I was preparing to get a photo for Jane.

At Avondale, there are actually 5 Workman family markers, in a group at the west end of Section L. I'm still prepping the other photos. For instance, the small marker in the wide photo is that of Thomas Ballantyne Workman, son of William and Jane. I like to take group photos of markers for added context.

Since there really is a cenotaph marker at Toronto with William's name on it, I suggest you create a new memorial for William's actual burial at Avondale. Since it in a different cemetery, it would not be a duplicate. You would have to decide which memorial should have the family links, and add hyperlinks in the bio section to link to William's other memorial. (I use such hyperlinks for siblings when the parents don't have memorials and to link to military burials).

I'll attach the appropriate photos when William's Avondale memorial is ready. Or, I could create the memorial and transfer to you once the basics are done. Ditto the other Workman family members. Let me know your preference. (Just adding photos is relatively quick. Getting a batch of new memorials ready to upload takes several days more: to identify all the names, add transcriptions and GPS coordinates).

RE: Rolston in Walkerton Cemetery
Thanks for your note, I have removed the two pictures. FYI there is another Rolston marker near John.s for Charles Rolston, John Rolston and Mary Creamer, wife of Charles. If this is of interest to you let me know and I'll take a picture. I am just getting the hang of posting the photos.

RE: Coulson in Mt. Pleasant, London
Absolutely a pleasure to transfer your family to you! I didn't see your message until today as I haven't been on Find A Grave much lately. Now the weather is good I can start taking pics again and adding memorials.

Take care,

Angie C.
