Bio Photo "The two most important days in your life are the day you are born, and the day you find out why." ~ Mark Twain

My hometown is the Tri-State area of Ohio, WV, & PA. The ancestry I'm researching are Nease, Wright, Zirkle, Camp, Allmon, Seevers, Cheek, Higgins, McGraw, Shriver, Bishop, Pyle, Jackson, and Moore.

I am the 4th "Myra" in the family...

Every ancestor has a story, and I'm compelled to tell it.

*You are welcome to use any picture that I have contributed in any manner you deem appropriate.

Should I no longer be able to maintain my memorials, my assigned steward is my sister, Carrie, contributor # 48016159.

Prayer for Genealogists

Lord, help me dig into the past
And sift the sands of time
That I might find the roots that made
This family tree of mine.
Lord, help me trace the ancient road
On which my fathers trod
And led them through so many lands
To find our present sod.
Lord, help me find an ancient book
Or dusty manuscript
That's safely hidden now away
In some forgotten crypt.
Lord, let it bridge the gap that haunts
My soul when I can't find
The missing link between some name
That ends the same as mine.

~by Curtis Woods

​The Dash

​I read of a man who stood to speak
at the funeral of a friend.
He referred to the dates on her tombstone
from the beginning…to the end.

He noted that first came the date of her birth
and spoke of the following date with tears,
but he said what mattered most of all
was the dash between those years.

For that dash represents all the time
that she spent alive on earth.
And now only those who loved her
know what that little line is worth.

For it matters not, how much we own,
the cars…the house…the cash
What matters is how we live and love
and how we spend our dash.

So, think about this long and hard.
Are there things you'd like to change?
For you never know how much time is left
that can still be rearranged.

If we could just slow down enough
to consider what's true and real
and always try to understand
​the way other people feel.

And be less quick to anger
and show appreciation more
and love the people in our lives
like we've never loved before.

If we treat each other with respect
and more often wear a smile,
remembering that this special dash
might only last a little while.

​So, when your eulogy is being read,
with your life's actions to rehash…
would you be proud of the things they say
about how you spent YOUR dash?

​~by Linda Ellis

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.

Life is just a stopping place, a pause in what's to be
A resting place along the road to sweet eternity.
We all have different journeys, different paths along the way
We all were meant to learn some things, but we were never meant to stay.
Our destination is a place far greater than we know.
For some the journey's quicker, for some the journey's slow. And when the journey finally ends, we'll claim a great reward And find an everlasting peace together with the Lord.

RE: Hazlett-Allmon line
Hello cousin ! Yes indeed, they are my great grandparents. You must know, however, their child, James Hazlett, my grandfather was illegitimate.

It does not matter to me but for correct records it does matter to many.

The Hazlett line is a great brick wall for me, I can find no records concerning Sara's father, Robert C Hazlett at all. Many think he is descended from Isaac Newton Hazlett from Zanesville, Ohio, but I can find no connection there at all.

RE: Heartfelt Thanks
You are very welcome for the photo. I'm sorry the quality is not the greatest. Maybe if the sun was in a different location it may have shown better. The marker shares the same marker with his wife on the opposite side. Also at the base of his wife's side of the marker is the name Roler. I have added a photo of the base to the memorial. Unfortunately I can not read it that well either. If you wish for a better quality photo please ask. If I get back down that way I can try again or if you put a request with a statement on it to the memorial someone else may be able to get a better shot. Again I am sorry that it did not turn out as good as I would have liked it to have been.

McGraw parents
Thank you for the edit Myra! My wife's family is from the area. Jones, Crawford, Shaner, Roberts, Musgrove, and Neff. I am particularly having trouble tracing Vina Roberts Shaner's ancestry. If you ever run across Roberts' ancestry, please let me know. Thanks, G. K.
