Bio and Links
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 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.

I want to thank all of those whom take time out of their lives volunteering to take headstone photos. It is greatly appreciated.

I am researching the families of:

I would love to get in contact with you about the Beaudrie Family I have found a lot on my own but it would be interesting to see what others have.

Thank you, Jared, for updating the Niedermeier names!

I am writing to request management of the Neidmeiers you have at Riverside Cemetery. They are all my relatives. Thank you.

Neidmeier Family
Where did you get your information for the Neidmeier Family that you posted on the Find A Grave site in Riverside Cemetery in South Rockwood, Monroe, Michigan? The last name is spelled wrong. It is NIEDERMEIER. Are you related to this family? Hoping to hear from you.

Samuel Navarre
Hi Jared,
I see you still have not moved Samuel Navarre from Riverside Cemetery, S. Rockwood, Monroe County, Michigan to Saint Marys Cemetery in Rockwood, Wayne County, Michigan. Can you please do so? Today, I went ahead a placed the photo on his memorial page but would prefer to see it in the correct cemetery. Thank you!

RE: Sorry for the delayed response
Yes, I am related to the Navarre family and the Beaudrie family. Yes, I photographed Samuel Navarre's headstone in St. Mary's Cemetery in Rockwood but am unable to post the photograph since you have him in a different cemetery. Once his location is corrected, I will be happy to post the photograph.

Thank you for the compliment on catching mistakes. I strive for accuracy and appreciate when I am told that there is an error. Some take offense but it is so important for those searching for their loved ones.
