A Poem for Reflection
The limbs that move, the eyes that see,
These are not entirely me;
Dead men and women helped to shape
The mold which I do not escape;
The words I speak, my written line,
These are not uniquely mine.
For in my heart and in my will
Old ancestors are warring still,
Celt, Roman, Saxon, and all the dead
From whose rich blood my veins are fed,
In aspect, gesture, voices, tone,
Flesh of my flesh, bone of my bone;
In fields they tilled I plow the sod,
I walk the mountain paths they trod;
And round my daily steps arise
The good and bad of those I comprise.
~by English poet Richard Rolle, written over 600 years ago
The author may be unknown of this poem, but the name shown at the bottom was cut from a newspaper with this poem as it is written. Perhaps, he wrote it or just submitted it.
I would rather have one little rose
From the garden of a friend,
Than to have the choicest flowers
When my stay on earth must end.
I would rather have a pleasant word
In kindness said to me
Than flattery when my heart is still
And this life has ceased to be.
I would rather have a loving smile
From friends I know are true
Than tears shed round my casket
When this world I've bid adieu.
Bring me all the flowers today
Whether pink, white, or red
I'd rather have one blossom now
Than a truckload when I'm dead.
~John Dillon, Sr.

Hi Brenda! Thank you for your kind words. Carolyn was a friend and colleague of mine. I too hope you and I meet up some time at Mount Moriah. I expect to get back down there in early March.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you Brenda, my Find A Grave friend! Please let me hear from you!

Merry Christmas Brenda, Hope you are all Well. More or less just got back from Alabama to show Mom my brother's house while she can still see reasonably well, and for his birthday. Visited Jack Daniel's distillery, Oakville Indian Mounds, Jessie Owens birthplace and General Wheeler's plantation. Best - rob
Brenda please contact me about a treasure trove of photo that we found on the Mobberly's.
|Denena Barnette||RE: Allen|
Mary Pearl was my mothers grandmother. I will ask her if she has any photos of her grandpa, John Allen. We are going to research his family when she comes to Florida in a few weeks. Thank you so much for your help. Are you related to Mary Pearl also?
|Denena Barnette||RE: Mary Pearl Mobberly|
Is there a way to find the grave of her husband, John W. Allen? I believe he was buried beside her at Oaklawn Cemetary.
|G. M. Genovese||RE: Thank you!|
No problem, Brenda. My pleasure.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you Brenda, my Find A Grave friend! Let me hear from you!

You're right about the year span, of course. I'm embarrassed to make that kind of a math mistake (although I sometimes joke about the three kinds of statisticians -- those who can count accurately, and those who can't).
I'm not personally related to this family. Someone I was researching a couple years ago (encountered in Iowa) happened to have been baptized at Grace Episcopal Church in Philadelphia, and when I realized there was a very intact parish register online I made a project of putting in Find A Grave those recorded burials that had not already been memorialized by others. When I encounter more than one person with the same surname in the same cemetery I like to look more closely at the family using ancestry.com and other resources. Occasionally I notice family historians working on these families who either are relatives or are part of a small community where the family was well known and interact a little with the researcher.
