I just wanted to leave a message for C Mackenzie to thank you for making this record. I am researching my family tree and recently learned that my great-grandparents were buried at Brookside Cemetery. I was so pleased to find this photo of their headstone.
Coincidentally this is the same cemetery where we interred my father's ashes, not knowing that his grandparents were also buried there. I am curious if you are a relative as well, given your last name. My father changed the spelling of his last name to Mackenzie so I know that both spellings can occur in the same family.

Thank you for promptly transferring this FindaGrave site to my management within a day of my posting the request on your public message site. I appreciated your achieving this despite the current demands on your energies and time you described in brief in your email to me.
As stated earlier your willingness to take the time to document family histories and in particular Marguerite Taylor Hogue on FindaGrave so that others like myself may stumble across the information is greatly appreciated.

Hi C. Mackenzie:
Thank you for taking the time to document our family history. I am requesting transfer management of this site to me as this is direct a relative of my niece's father. My initial request was made through the edit section as per instructions on this site however I has yet to receive a response of any kind so I have updated and copied the request, made on November 8, 2015 below. If C. Mackenzie is not the active manager of this site could you please direct me to the person who is responsible for it. This information on her metis heritage is very important to her and our family.
My niece had me tracing her Metis background for her application to enter Law at University when I came across this site about her honoured 4th great grandmother. I manage 63 other relatives' sites and I would like to do a significant update of her information as she and Amable had a very large family. And of course there are the Simpson boys to add as well.
PS You likely already know that in 1868 Canada recognized the custom of 'country wife' as legal marriage in Canada hence George Simpson was her 'legal' spouse. The marriage was 'legally' ended in divorce when George arranged for her to marry one of his HBC employees, a stone mason named Louis Amable Hogue.

I do not have any direct connections to the Garrett family that I know of. I do have a couple of Garrett's in Ohio but haven't looked for any connection between the two. Maybe I should look for that connection; would love to have a Bible with history like that. I'll let you know if I find something. Thanks, Pat
Thank you very much for the picture of Murdock McLennan's memorial. I really appreciate it.

Thanks for adding the plot numbers to the memorials you have in Brookside Cemetery. It helps me try to keep track of what stones have already been photographed, in this huge huge cemetery. P.S. The years 1882 to about 1909 for this cemetery are not on-line, and it seems the vast majority of burials in this cemetery back then did not have gravestones.

I looked it up and Manitoba has something like 150 Rural Municipalities. And it is actually kind of difficult to find a map of where they are located, and the early census's did not really use the Municipality borders either. Oh well. Most of my Manitoba relatives are in four Municipalities, however they are in only one Find-a-Grave "County" which works out to be quite convenient for me.

Thank you for the quick update on Gilbert Harvey :)
Brookside was a mess and it has now been straightened out. I realize that caused a bit of a hassle for some but we'll get all the info back on. Please feel free to send me info as well and I will be glad to update the memorials.
|Beth Street||permission to use photo|
I would also like to use Thomas's wife's gravestone photo... I can't believe the difference between yours and the one someone else put up there...I will most definitely give you the credit for the photos...
Please and thank you
