Their Daughter is buried in the St Vincent Cemetery. We are having the 155th St Vincent Town Reunion July 28 and 29th 2012. Any chance you have any pictures or info on Elsie/Ellen Jane Forbes?

Sorry, this is the only picture of my grandmother's family that I have and I haven't been able to identify them except the girl in the white dress is my Grandmother Ellen Charlotte Forbes who married William Ernest Hills and her parents, John and Augusta. I am assuming that this picture was taken the day of their wedding since the dress matches their wedding photo.  It would have been taken 27 Aug 1905. Elice or Elsie Jane was born 1873 and died 1967. She was  married to James Curtis.   One of their other daughters would have died about 1913 and I haven't been able to find her burial place but she was born about 1862, her married  name was Mary Hale.

Would anyone have any info on Elsie  Forbes buried in St. Vincent Cemetery?   I have my Great Aunt's death certificate from North Dakota for Mary Forbes Hales who died 06 Feb 1917 and was buried 09 Feb 1917 in Hallock.   Thought at one time this might have been her who may have been buried under her sister's name.   Difficult to find her as she did use a couple of different names. Any help appreciated.
