George Elliott and Mabel Burrows: My Great Grandparents

Return to Hamilton: Paying Respects to my Elliott/Burrows Family

Besides exploring the beautiful architecture and getting a sense for ‘place’ while in Hamilton, I also said my prayers over many of my paternal ancestors.  My Grandmother Florence Elliott’s parents (my great grandparents) have their resting place in the Woodland Cemetery in Hamilton, along with their son John Stanton Elliott and wife.  Caroline May Elliott has her resting place in Holy Sepulchre Catholic Cemetery.  Thanks to my wonderful second cousin, Mike, I was able to share this experience with family.  Related also, but living in St. Catherines, is my second cousin, Barry.

Through the connection with Mike, I have been able to see that we have a shared interest in birding and photography and family history.  Roots are wonderful things!

On the schematic below, my paternal grandmother is marked with the little house symbol.  My great grandparents were Mabel Burrows and George Elliott.  If you see yourself or your relations somewhere on this tree, please be in touch.
