When my soul is restless
And things seem out of line,
I visit an old graveyard
To take a mystical step back in time.

I find the oldest tombstones
Then read the messages there;
I consider what their days had been
And how our lives in ways compare.

We all have lived though heartaches
As well as episodes of fun;
Surviving loss of loved ones,
And rewarded for a job well done.

Sometimes if I'm very still
I can hear what they have to say
And feel them reaching out to me
Grateful for my momentary stay.

RE: Sylvan Abbey Request
I believe it was Shirley Hudson...just trying to give people a chance to fill their requests because without a plot it would be pretty impossible there.

RE: Callie Winchester Lakey
I don't know why some of the memorials are not showing up in cemeteries that I put them in. If you look closer a sister, Laura is now a duplicate as well. URGHH... I will just read them to the cemetery and if you would be so kind to delete yours I would appreciate it. Pat

Francis C Plott - Dellwood - Haywood Co NC
Hi Kate:

I really appreciate your grave marker photo for Francis C Plott - wife of Amos Plott in the Dellwood Cemetery in Haywood County, North Carolina. Her findagrave memorial# 159159857 records her death date as 1816. I am wondering if the "1" in "1816" is really a "4" as in "1846"? It's difficult to see details of older stones in photos as time/weather can erode the finer lines.

I don't know, of course, if you go over to that cemetery from time to time but if you do get there some time in the future - would you consider examining her grave marker closer to see if there are more lines/marks around the second "1" in "1816" to see if it could be a "4"?

Thank you for helping record these markers so many can discover their family. Best regards, Nancy

Hi Kate,
Thank you so much for all the connections that I have submitted to you lately. I know there will be more to come as I am working on the Cabe family for a friend. Thanks again and have a great week.

Ellis Jerome Howell
I noticed you sent an update regarding information about Ellis Jerome Howell back in 2006.

Today I purchased a tintype photo at an antique shop in Nashville, TN. I notice it is a photo of Ellis Jerome Howell.
If you know of any family members of Ellis who might be interested in having the tintype I would be glad to offer it to them at no cost.
