Bio Photo Dear Ancestor
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
Spread 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.


You know being lonely its funny in a way on one hand i am free to explore my mind and find the answers to questions about myself but on the other hand i have no one to share the answers with..... Maybe loneliness is best with a friend

I'd like to see that photo of the school children. My mom and my Aunt Rose are the only 2 left of Tinsie's children. Mom said to contact my Aunt. Rose Pletcher in Hesperia, MI. Mom said she has old family pictures.

No I haven't any photos of her, I was going to ask you the same question.

I've just sent an email to the registrar of the Sault Ste Marie Chippewa tribe. Hopefully I'll hear back from her soon with some information about how we can go about getting information.

RE: Rosie Belle Maggo Ostrom
Hi Jeremy,

I would love to find out more about her. My grandmother didn't talk to much about her because at the time there was such a stigma associated with being a Native American. I searched a few years ago but came up against a brick wall and was told that all the records were lost and nobody knew anything about her other than the fact that she was Native American. Perhaps we can solve this mystery. I'd like to try.

RE: Rosie Belle Maggo Ostrom
Yes, we are related. Hi cousin! lol I am Norma Jean Olsons daughter. Mom and I were talking this morning and I googled Rosie Belle and found this sight. My mom's information is a little different from yours but it is sketchy at best. We've had a hard time coming up with family information. I assure you that I am who I say I am. :)

My email is jpwilson416@gmail.com. I would like to know where you got your information about my great grandmother. Some of it is wrong.
