no mention of a burial for William Ford Gardiner.
William & Elizabeth also had sons James who married Euphemia, Henry who was single in the 1901 census, living in James' home, daughter Elizabeth Jane who married Henry George McConnell (my GG Grandparents).The familes came to Manitoba from the Glencoe, Mosa, Ontario area.
