Robert Jex was my
Great Great Great Grandfather.
He was born on 30th September 1799,
and baptised on 6th October 1799,
at All Saints church, Briston,
The only son & youngest of four children
born to Robert Jex (c1765) &
Frances Mayes (c1767)
His siblings were:
Elizabeth (1785) &
His occupation was a Baker.
In 1822, at St Agnes church,
Cawston, Norfolk, he married
Mary Pratt (c1805, a widow)
Their son is Robert (c1822-1866,
my Great Great Grandfather)
At this time their are no confirmed details regarding his death.
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and the date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who cares
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.
