*•.¸¸♥ ¸¸.•* 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'd 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."
Walter Butler Palmer

Thank you!
I sincerely appreciate your taking the time to photograph my civil war relative Linus Gilbert. My apologies for not writing sooner...for some reason this went to spam. Thanks again!

Thank you for adding this picture. This is the marker of my grandparents. I live in TX and don't get to Illinois often to visit it. It's nice to see it here.
