ON MISSING NUMISMATIC TOMBSTONES

Scott Douglas writes: "In reference to Pete Smith's 'Missing
Numismatic Headstones' article, I can offer this instance from
my research: While researching Canadian Numismatist William Robert
McColl for my privately published book 'Traces of a Numismatic Past'
I discovered that although his interment was registered in the
Greenwood Cemetery in Owen Sound, Ontario there was not a headstone
or footstone or anything at all to mark the resting place of this
well-respected citizen. His long time business partner was William
Lee and his wife Lucy was Lee's sister. Both of these fine
individuals predeceased McColl. The McColls did not have children
and so when W.R. McColl died in 1933 he was laid to rest in the
Lee plot, beside his wife, by his nephews. The headstone simply
states LEE."
