My granddaughter, a high school student in Ottawa, Ontario, is going to France in the spring with a group of students from Ontario. Each will lay a wreath at a grave of a soldier who died during the war. My granddaughter is to lay her's at the grave of Gavin Semple Richmond. She would like to know more about Gavin Richmond and would like to notify the Richmond family of what she is going to do. Does anyone know the descendents of Gavin Richmond?
