"He who careth not from whence he came careth little whither he goeth." - Daniel Webster|
This is a quote my father, T'Odon Charles Leshikar attached to the front of one of his family trees. He was passionate about recording names, dates, relationships of family members. At every family reunion he spread out his sheets encouraging everyone to see where they were and make sure the correct spelling, date of birth, marriage and death of every one was included. The last week of his life we spent retyping and entering corrections on all his trees (the numbers are impressive!) and then sent copies to each of his first cousins - including a distant cousin in Czechoslovakia (Czech Republic).
Using these trees, I am trying to track down and source each and every family member as well as add the newer ones. Finding the graves, seeing the headstones, sharing information, showing relationships and from one spot being able to leave a remembrance - my father would have loved websites like Find A Grave.
And then there are the treasures to be found –
This is the inscription from the headstone of my ancestors Josef Jirasek and Rosalie Balcar Jirasek who brought their family from Czechoslovakia to Texas in 1867.
"Here rest, a couple who loved each other,
after a long and arduous journey
through the byways of the world.
Laid here for their eternal sleep.
Completed is your life. Rest in Peace."
Please do not post death certificates on the memorials I have created. I feel strongly that this is not the place for them.

|Beverly Fortner||RE: Rufus Hankins Photo|
I hope you will take time to look at his grandmother's (Lucy Mildred Ewer Smith)site. When we figured out her four children, I knew that Rufus was there somewhere. My sister and I pierced the ground near the stones with a spike and were able to locate all 5 under the ground! We dug until they were all uncovered and felt like we had found buried treasure.
I am glad we were able to find the grave for you. Beverly

Nancy, you are special and I thank you so very much! Jane
|Robert Fowler||Coach Royal|
I just wanted to say that it was my privilege to read the biography you posted for Coach Royal. I so enjoyed it, especially all the Royalisms you included. I can tell it came from the heart and I am glad I had the opportunity to read it and thank you.
|Michele Clement||Marie Hebert St Raphael's Cemetery|
The inscription for Marie was difficult to read. The top part with Amant Hebert was not as worn out. Marie's was at the bottom of the stone. It looked like vegetation had grown over it at some time. I did not have anything with me to clean the stone - maybe I'll get back there one day.
|Bonnie Ward Williamson||Temple Photo Requests, Mt. Pleasant Cem., Jefferson Co., IL|
Nancy, when I filled your request for these photos, I noticed that the stones of Samuel W. & Mary E. Temple each included their place of birth, so I attempted to get enough to make it readable.
|Michael Maxwell||Grave transfers|
I see your middle name is Leshiker. Very similar to my ancestor's but I am going to ask for these people to be transferred to me if that is ok. I understand if you want to keep them.
