Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in genealogy for most of my life thanks to my Aunt Iola who wrote and contributed to a number of family histories. Lewis and I have always taken pictures of grave markers as a means of documenting our families. Last year this interest took us to Hants County, Nova Scotia. I have been posting the cemetery pictures we took on Ancestry and received a note suggesting I post my pictures on Find A Grave and here I am!

I would be happy to transfer any memorial page that I created to anyone who is closer to the person honored than I am. I welcome corrections and am happy to make additions.

RE: John Riggs
Yes, you may send it to me. I would be happy to take a look before you repost. Are you descended from John Riggs?
I have no information on Wade Taylor but, could do some research to see if there is a connection. Sarah's first husband was George Vickery and their child, Georgia, was born after George died but, as far as I know, she still carried the name of Vickery. I have not yet found his cause of death. Some story out there about him being killed in a stage coach accident or Indian attack. We may never know the facts on that one ;). Thank you for you help in making this memorial factual.

John Riggs
May I transfer John Riggs (memorial # 113272745) to you? I did some editing as per your information. Is "Wade" Taylor part of the wagon train fantasy? You refer to Sarah's first daughter as Georgia "Vickery."

Melvin Montey
you wrote:

When I searched for Melvin "Montey", Find A Grave could not find him. Because he did not adopt the Army spelling of his name, I believe it should not be used for his memorial. As his name appears, I would expect Monty to be his nickname.
Thank you for creating the memorial!

But it appears when he moved to Michigan he did adopt that spelling; his second wife's memorial also has the last name spelled Montey - see #127335181. We have removed the 'nickname' spelling of his name.

#129811887 Seymour Douglas Walsh
You might like to revisit this posting. Seymour is buried in the Lr. Horton Cemetery in Grand Pre. I posted a photo of the headstone for he & his wife Clara Belle King. Clara Belle was born April 18, 1891 in Avonport and passed June 18, 1934 in Avonport from a Postpartum Hemorrhage. Please feel free to use this information and photo to make a correction.

Mary E. McClure death date
We just uploaded a picture of her stone in the Cutler Cemetery and noticed a difference in the date. Thought you might like to know.

Taylor-Redden Shoes
Robert Taylor was my great great grandfather. He had a shoe factory st Duke and Brunswick St. I think he also had a company called Taylor-Redden shoes on Barrington and Sackville streets. I was wondering if these buildings, or perhaps the facades, still remain and if there is some kind of plaque.

Waterville Cemetery
Hello Barbara,
A little more of Hants Co. geography. Waterville was the area now known as Upper & Lower Vaughan.
There is no Waterville Cemetery as such. The people you have in Waterville Cemetery are actually in Lakeview Baptist Cemetery. In the former area of Waterville there are 3 Cemeteries. Also I would take the Wile memorials if you want to transfer them
Regards, Barrie
