Two Poems,
THE STORYTELLERS WE ARE THE CHOSEN
In each family there is one who seems to be called to find the Ancestors.To put flesh on their bones and make them Live again,to tell the Family Story and to feel that somehow they know and approve.Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but,instead,breathing life into all who have gone on before. We are the Storytellers of the Tribe. All tribes have one.We have been called,as it were by our genes.Those who have gone before cry out to us "Tell our Story" ! So,we do.In finding them,we somehow find ourselves.
^^^^first part of said poem,
- Author UNKNOWN
_______________________________________
Dear Ancestor
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiselled out
on polished, marble 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.

RE: Billinghurst
I keep looking in England as well, but have had no more luck than you. Too many Billinghursts! If I find anything of interest I will let you know. Happy hunting--Susan

William Billinghurst
Hi, Peanut! Boy have you done a lot of work on Find a Grave. I have just started over the last couple of days. William Billinghurst is my 4th great grandfather. I come down through his son Lucien. I noticed the picture of William on his Find a Grave site donated by you. William died in 1838, and given the history of photography this can't be that William. Could it possibly be his son, William, who was a world famous gunsmith?

Tammy Elizabeth Gunnels Potter
Are you having as much trouble as I am with Tammy Elizabeth Gunnels Potter? She seems to have moved into our territory and started a feud with us members in the area
