Thanks Sandra, to help, I sent maps and airphotos of the graves to show that they exist and to make them easy to find.......google maps amd hybrid photomaps are a real boon. L-J....if you want to see the email as an example, I could copy you if i knew how!!!

Hi Rootschatters,
 I am finishing a book on the history of Cumberland United Church, Ontario, for our 190th anniversary. It contains the biographies of all our Ministers since 1828! I am missing a couple of images of their graves, which I need before going to print. I was hoping that someone living close to the cemeteries would be kind enough to take some digital images of the full grave headstone or ground stone. These are the coordinates....I have no proof that there are any markers but I am hoping so. I have tried all the databases on Canadian headstones and so far no luck. Thanks as always, L-J

Reverend Peter Lindsay (1820-1912).....section 14 lot 238N    Prospect Cemetery ( the plot belonged to his daughter Margaret Lindsay)

Reverend William Anderson (1831-1916) ....plot C section 12 lot 14  Mt Pleasant Cemetery
Wife of Anderson.....Elizabeth Waters (1841- 1915) ......Plot O section 65, lot 3 Mt Pleasant Cemetery

Armed Forces / War Office Fleet WWII
« on: Saturday 01 July 17 01:20 BST (UK)  »
On a 1944 marriage certificate, a relative gives his occupation as Engineer with the War Office Fleet. He told his son they did duties like towing targets for shore battery target practice. Any information I can find for the fleet relates to WW1. Can Any Rootschatters help with information on the War Office Fleet WW2 activities and if possible how I or or his son might obtain his service file. The period is not included in his merchant navy record for service before and after the war.   Thanks very much LJ

Dorset / Thomas Soper, Mary and Joseph 16th century
« on: Wednesday 21 June 17 17:39 BST (UK)  »
Hi Rootschatters,

 I am writing a biography on Warren Young Soper (of Ottawa, Canada) and have traced his male line ancestors to Thomas Soper (b England 1589 d Massachusetts 1657), spouse Mary (1586-1618), and son Joseph (b 1638 England d Boston Massachusetts 1678).

I believe, though I am by no means certain, that Thomas came from Dorset, as that county was the source of many immigrants to that colony.

I am therefore looking for any information (bmd and other) on Thomas, Mary and Joseph in England.

Rootschatters have always come through in my past research!

I am very grateful for this and for any help I can get in this endeavour.

Best Canadian sesquicentennial wishes!      LJ

United States of America / Thomas and Joseph Soper 1638-1657 Massachusetts
« on: Wednesday 21 June 17 17:31 BST (UK)  »
Hi Rootschatters,

 I am writing a biography on Warren Young Soper ( of Ottawa, Canada) and have traced his male line ancestors to Thomas Soper (b England 1589 d Massachusetts 1657), spouse Mary (1586-1618),and son Joseph (b 1638 England d Boston Massachusetts 1678).

Joseph married Elizabeth Alcock/Allcock (bt 10 October 1837), daughter of an early Massachusetts pioneer, on March 6 1656 in Boston.

I surmise that Thomas had lost his wife Mary, possibly to child birth complications in England ( there being only one child, Joseph) and had immigrated with his son to the Massachusetts Colony between 1638 and 1657. This would have been in the second wave of colonists.

I have consulted all documentation on the first wave to 1630 and could not find them; nor did I expect to do so given Joseph's birth date and location in England, unless Thomas went out ahead of his son.

Mary could not have died on the voyage as her death date preceeds any colonisation of Massachussetts.

I am, therefore, looking for Thomas' and Joseph's records in  ship's passenger lists and any other information on Thomas and Mary.

I have subsequent records for Joeseph and Elizabeth, except I would like to know more about Joseph as a possible captain in a militia or the Rangers.

Rootschatters have always come through in my past research!

I am very grateful for this and for any help I can get in this endeavour.

Best Canadian sesquicentennial wishes!      LJ
