I went to your main site and you sure have a lot of grave markers photographed...very impressive.

I believe my Great-Great Grandmother is buried in the Cataraqui New Section A (Ontario Cemetery Finding Aid says KG 0534-5) but I am trying to verify it is her. Is this the same cemetery you photographed?

Cheers, Jenn
