Your tombstone stands among the rest;|
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
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.

|S ||Thomas LaFave photo|
Hello. You took a picture of the grave of Thomas LaFave (#20061598) in Cheboygan Co, MI. Would it be OK for me to use the photo on my private Ancestry.com tree? I would give you the credit.
He is my great great great aunt's first husband. Thank you for taking the photo.

Just want to thank you for updating his memorial. I do have a flower left that has a lot of his info if you want to use it. It saddens me when I see someone who isn't linked to their family :(
I appreciate all the hard work you've put in. And I especially love the poem you have on your page.
Thank you again,

duplicate eliminated...many thanks!
|Jeremy Ball||RE: Ellen McLeay|
You're very welcome!
I sent Tammy a note. I ask her to check and see how many she has duplicated in Star Cemetery. I hope she will take my advice as I meant it. We all have to learn how to use Find A Grave so that it will be an enjoyable place to do research. One memorial per person is enough. I did find that Tammy has pictures in Bellaire that have been laced in Mancelona by mistake. By taking a picture in a cemetery it is fairly well accepted that the memorial belongs there also. Thank you for putting your message to me is such kind words. Mary

Yes, I mix my letter up also. See Last note. Mary

Hi, I want you to know that I know Tammy's memorial of Shelia Bigger is the duplicate. I don't know why she isn't checking to see if there is a memorial in place. She has added a lot of information and I hope that you can work together to fix this problem. Mary

You took a very beautiful photo of a Revolutionary soldier marker for Benjamin Ferris. Unfortunately it was placed on the wrong memorial. It's on memorial #12790904 for Benjamin Ferris (1808-1874). It should be on memorial #81418630 Benjamin Ferris (1732-1832). I wondered if you'd mind removing your photo from the first memorial and placing it on the correct one? I'd appreciate it so much. Thanks for such a great picture!
|Janet Muff||RE: re: your message about Aaron Orr's wife|
You've got the wrong Aaron and the wrong Charlotte.
I sent you a message linked to Nelson Orr
At the time I sent this message, his wife Charlotte (1846-1926)
was linked to Aaron Orr, 50 years her senior.
I see now that you've unlinked them. So, I will send you a direct edit asking you to link Charlotte to her husband Nelson.
Meanwhile, you will see Nelson and Charlotte together in the 1870, 1880, 1900, and 1920 census records.
Evergreen Hill Cemetery is located on Yuill Rd. I sent you a message because you had taken some photos for the cem. I thought you were near it. No Reuben is not listed. I have looked for other references to Evergreen cem. to see if he is listed and I haven''t found him. The information I have came from his death certificate. It says he is buried in Vanderbilt in Corinth twp. When I researched Evergreen was the only cem. I found. I have searched for Rueben for a long time. The rest of his family all lived and died in Detroit. Yet I couldn't find him. On his death cert. it said he was a woodsman. It gave no info on his family or even his age, only when he died. So I'm thinking if he is in evergreen he would be one of them graves that may have very little information? I don't know if any of this helps but its what I know.
