Bio and Links
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.

I want to thank all of those whom take time out of their lives volunteering to take headstone photos. It is greatly appreciated.

I am researching the families of:

Samuel Navarre
Hi Jared,
I see you still have not moved Samuel Navarre from Riverside Cemetery, S. Rockwood, Monroe County, Michigan to Saint Marys Cemetery in Rockwood, Wayne County, Michigan. Can you please do so? Today, I went ahead a placed the photo on his memorial page but would prefer to see it in the correct cemetery. Thank you!

RE: Sorry for the delayed response
Yes, I am related to the Navarre family and the Beaudrie family. Yes, I photographed Samuel Navarre's headstone in St. Mary's Cemetery in Rockwood but am unable to post the photograph since you have him in a different cemetery. Once his location is corrected, I will be happy to post the photograph.

Thank you for the compliment on catching mistakes. I strive for accuracy and appreciate when I am told that there is an error. Some take offense but it is so important for those searching for their loved ones.

RE: Frankhouse's
Hi Jared
I am not related to the Frankhouse's but my ex-husbands' family is related through his 1st great grand Aunt Mary Jeanne "Jane" LeVasseur who married John Jacob Frankhouse 24 Oct 1893. She died in Feb 1926 and he married Clara Ellen Pierson in Oct 1926
when John Frankhouse was 50 yrs old and Clara was 22 yrs old. John Frankhouse and Jane LeVasseur had no children that I have found but John and Clara had 11 children.
