Robert Gamble: Williamstown Village Cemetery

Robert Gamble - Williamstown Village Cemetery, Williamstown, Vermont
While walking through the Williamstown Village Cemetery in Williamstown, VT I came across this stone. After some research, I doubt that I am related to this Robert Gamble, but since I did the research, I figured I would post it here for anyone else it may be helpful to.

Robert J. Gamble was born about 1871 in St. George, New Brunswick, Canada to Malcolm Gamble and Mary J Hood. He was naturalized in the US on 26 August 1896. He married 1) Lulu Hall on 21 Oct 1893 in Williamstown. He married 2) Sylvia Hood on 2 Jul 1902 in Haverhill, New Hampshire. He died on tuberculosis of the spine on 15 Jun 1905 in Groton, Vermont.

Mystery Grave in St. Isidore's Cemetery, Montgomery Vermont

One of the many lines I research is the Domina's, my boyfriend's maternal line. The Domina family came from Quebec, where their surname was St. Domine, and ended up in the Belvidere/Montgomery area of Vermont. During a visit to St. Isidore's Catholic Cemetery in Montgomery this past summer, I photographed a bunch of Domina graves, many of whom I am still working on connecting to my boyfriend's line.

These graves, one marked Domina and the other's writing worn to the point of illegibility, are in St Isidores, but I can not figure out who they belong to. Perhaps you can help?

A short trip into Canada: South Ridge Cemetery

Only about 1/4 mile over the Alburg, Vermont border and into Canada sits South Ridge Cemetery, and old cemetery that, at the time of my visit in 2009, was overgrown with grass & weeds (though from the sign posted, it would appear that they were looking for people to help maintain the cemetery. I wonder what ever happened with that. Anyone know?). This seemingly abandoned cemetery is the resting place of my 4th great grandparents, John Rember & Dinah Wilson, English immigrants who came to Quebec in 1820. I descend from them through their son, John, who was born at sea during their journey to Canada.

John Rember was born 3 May 1781 in England and died 29 May 1842 in Iberville, Quebec, Canada. He married Dinah Wilson on 16 Aug 1813 in Lowthorpe, Yorkshire, England. Dinah was born abt. 1794 in England and died in 1844 in Quebec, Canada.
