We Are The Chosen |
We are the chosen. In each family there is one who seems called to find
the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to
tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve.
Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, breathing
life into all who have gone before. We are the storytellers of the tribe.
All tribes have one. We have been called, as it were, by our genes. Those
who have gone before cry out to us, "Tell our story!" So, we do. In
finding them, we somehow find ourselves. How many graves have I stood before
now and cried? I have lost count. How many times have I told the
ancestors, "You have a wonderful family; you would be proud of us." How many times
have I walked up to a grave and felt somehow there was love there for me?
I cannot say. It goes beyond just documenting facts. It goes to who am I
and why do I do the things I do. It goes to seeing a cemetery about to be
lost forever to weeds and indifference and saying, "I can't let this
happen." The bones here are bones of my bone and flesh of my flesh. It goes to
doing something about it. It goes to pride in what our ancestors were able
to accomplish, how they contributed to what we are today. It goes to
respecting their hardships and losses, their never giving in or giving up,
their resoluteness to go on and build a life for their family. It goes to deep
pride that the fathers fought and some died to make and keep us a Nation.
It goes to a deep and immense understanding that they were doing it for us.
It is of equal pride and love that our mothers struggled to give us at

Hi Deborah! I went to Riverview today, looking for Section 17 lot 5 (John Dallas Higgans, d 1920) and his daughter, Stella Cheek, Section 10 lot 1405(she died 1918.) Helen brought out her detailed map but still could not locate either site. If you should come across either of them, please please let me know! ;)

I am interested in proving his Confederate service for a UDC application.
Do you have proof Irvin Magee was in the company listed: Co C 33rd MS Inf? On Fold 3 is he found under some initial. Please contact me through either Find-a-Grave or at my regular Email address: firstname.lastname@example.org

I was just wondering if there was a picture of her headstone. Also nearby is there a grave for her husband Joseph Birbeck?

|Jackson Edward Wilson||Be careful.|
Good morning Deborah,
Just wanted to let you know to be careful the member FamTreeHunter, she is local nuisance and thinks she owns this site. Ask around and you'll hear many complaints. I too have the misfortunate of having to deal with their mind games daily as she thinks she can take my work over, because she is too lazy to find her own thing to do.
Best of regards,
Are you related to Lucinda (Dye) Jackson, and if so, do you know where her husband Jackson Salsberry is buried? He died sometime between 1877 and 1880.
Thank you in advance,
