Thank you for your compliments Peter, it certainly was a day to be proud of in our family. I wish writing Evander and his "many" wives and children's history was as easy. The research is extremely interesting.
Thank goodness for websites such as the Canadian Headstone one and others as I also remember the old way of travelling to cemeteries and sitting scrolling microfilm and microfiche.

Hello Linda

Your submission for Evander Wm. F. McRae has been approved and now appears on the Lanark county section of the Canadian Headstones website.

I found your comment at the bottom of the inscription intriguing, so, upon googling the name on the stone, I found your blog entry which I read with great interest.

I want to thank and congratulate you for your efforts in placing this stone and giving a home and recognition to your Great Grandfather. A job well done on behalf of another very deserving historical figure!

Peter, you are to be congratulated on your note to Linda. would not exist without the diligence of its tonnes of volunteers.
