Wanless Headstone Inscriptions in Various Canadian Cemeteries

All Wanless stones in Maple Leaf Cem, Chatham, Kent co, Ontario, Canada
FHL fiche 6332814, index on 6332813

This is a book of the monument inscriptions in this cemetery,
so there could be errors in misreading or mistranscribing the stones.
The numbers of the monuments are from the book, which was
prepared to Ontario Genealogical Society, Kent co branch. There were no other
spellings except Wanless in this cemetery. Most of these people
are in the database of Thomas Wanless & Isabella Kay or of
James Wanless & Margaret Baxter. My comments are in
square brackets.
