I went up to the Rye Cemetery and wrote down the names that I found on the grave stones and other markers.
I have a family tree. I got information from my mother, from my cousins and my aunts.
I had viewed a copy of the "These Our Ancesters Were" District of Parry Sound & Muskoka 1976. This book has information on cemeteries in Parry Sound District.
I have read parts of Wait for Me Awhile, by Audrey Michael Hicks.
