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.

Surnames that we are working on are:

WILSON, O'BANION, PATE, PEACE,
BAILEY, WISE, YOUNG & SPURLOCK.

How do I find out what happened to my great grandmother who died under most unusual circumstances? Do I need to go to that county?

RE: William Poland 1803-1889
Hi Virginia,

Thanks for writing. Yes, I was the one who requested the information on William "Bone" Ballard Poland (1803-1889) was my 3rd GGF. I've been wanting to get to the Bisteneau Cemetery for some time. I have some limited documents listed on ancestry.com. If you're a member, please let me know your user name and I'll send you a link. I did correspond with Richard Tucker over the years.

BTW, if you want to add an incentive to find the records for the cemetery to the lady you mentioned, please let her know i'll send her $25.00 if she's able to find them.

Your welcome. Sorry for the loss of your friend. I added what I believe is her father in law.

Updates
Hello Virginia

I added photo and limited information for this cemetery while paying respect to my grandmother's resting place. (Annie Bell Epperson) I do this when I find graves not already on Find-A-Grave with hopes that family will some day will request to take over. My health and vision is declining so I will be doing less research in the future. Let me know of any of the accounts you would like me to transfer to you so they can be better updated. Thank you,

B J Epperson
