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 age
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 found this and fell in love with it but, do not know who wrote it.

Hope that you enjoy reading it.

RE: J.A. Pate #47280367
I honestly do not have any information on J. A. Pate, but I must point out that it seems a little suspicious that J. A.'s mother had children every two years like clockwork, then had children on March 7, 1901, August 18, 1902, and August 5, 1903. Plus, she had several children in a row born in Shelby County, Texas, then buries J. A. in Nacogdoches County, one county over. If you have a copy of a birth certificate of one of J. A.'s younger siblings, say, for James Elvie Pate, it might show how many children Dicey Modenia Peace Pate had before James. Was he 9th or 10th? Anyway, your call. Have fun researching.

RE: Info. Griffith Family-Bistineau Cem.
The thing that brought my attention to Henry R. Griffith was that he was one of the jurors on the murder case involving the Reeves family that happened on Christmas Eve in the Groves community of Webster Parish back in 1916. It is such a sad story of the senseless murder of almost an entire family. If you haven't heard about that, you can read about it in a book written by Marilyn Miller entitled "Sons of Darkness, Sons of Light".

RE: Eliza Susan Boyet Culverhouse # 52710182
Great, that sounds reasonable to me that she would be the daughter of John T and Virginia Boyet. I will make the request to have the link from her to her parents made. Now if we could only find more information on the daughter, Sarah V.(Virginia is probably her middle name), then I think all of the children/siblings would be accounted for. Do you have anything on her that would help. Sarah most likely was born in 1868 since her parents married in 1867 and sister, Eliza Susan, was born in 1869.

Eliza Susan Boyet Culverhouse
There is an Elizabeth Susan Boyet Culverhouse that is buried in the Andrews Chapel Cemetery near Minden. Her memorial number is 52710182. Do you believe she is one of the older daughters of John T Boyet and Virginia Draper Boyet? The year of her birth fits right in with the dates of the other Boyet children. I would like to get her memorial linked to her parents' memorials if this is correct.

Baby Davis Memorial# 15454086
Hi Virginia, You may be right. I added the note you sent me about who you thought this baby may be and added a link to Charley L Davis. Maybe we can get some feedback on this memorial from someone.
