Where did the time go?

Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many.

Because I could not stop for Death,
He kindly stopped for me.
-Emily Dickinson

Still glides the Stream, and shall for ever glide;
The Form remains, the Function never dies;
while we, the brave, the mighty and the wise;
We Men, who in our morn of youth defied
The elements, must vanish; - be it so!
-William Wordsworth

Life must go on;
I forget just why.
-Edna St. Vincent Millay

"We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars."
-Oscar Wilde

"Life isn't fair.
Sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes you're the bug."

"I have a simple philosophy: Fill what's empty. Empty what's full. Scratch where it itches."
-Alice Roosevelt Longworth

"Is that all there is?"
-Peggy Lee

Whitington / Bjerke
I was looking at Sylvie Bjerke buried in Forest Hill in Owatonna; in the comment, it mentions that Sylvie was married twice. I'm not aware of this (he was my dad's cousin) - Sylvie's brother, Alvin was married twice (Alma and Clara); After Sylvie's death, his wife Faye remarried. I thought maybe if you had a little more information I could do a little more digging. Thank you - glen

RE: James Cowman
You are most welcome. I ended up going a second time as the stone was hard to read (debris on the stone). I washed it off with water and a rag and it came to life.
As far as his wife, Elizabeth, I could not find a readable stone next to his. There is an unreadable one there that I assume is hers but will try to confirm it soon with the sextons office there.
If there was a long delay between when you requested the memorial be posted and now I am sorry. I have just come on board as a volunteer (again)and seems no one has bothered doing the requests for several years. I am getting caught up
with them. Thankfully the cemetery isn't all that big.

Hey! Thanks for letting me know! Unfortunately, I looked for the correct photo and cannot find it. I have photos on flash drives going back several years, but for some reason I can't find the Tryons. I will get another photo soon. I can't believe it took nearly 2 1/2 years for someone to notice this error!

Thanks again.

Best regards,

RE: William Mallett
Not a problem :) I'd never stopped at St Elizabeth's before. From there now I have 38 photos I'll have to find time to upload :D

RE: John Ogden
I can't find an original source for the middle name of Michael for John Ogden 1700. It was listed that way on probably used that as a mental marker to define him from the others...for memory. Sorry I can't be more help. I'll let you know if I come across it. Also, the line I found on geni was incorrect based on the info online regarding the family bible...if that's correct. ?? The site has John 1700 as the great-grandson on John the Pilgrim. According to the article in the link I'm attaching he was his grandson...not great.
