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 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.

Sandy,
Please check my previous message to you here on findagrave, Oct. 5, 2014. I answered your question there.

The flowers are mine. I place them to take the picture when there is no marker. Seems more respectful that way. You're welcome. Have a good one!

Thank you, Sandy. If you aren't attached to his memorial and wouldn't mind transferring it, I'd be happy to take it. Perhaps those of his sons, as well? The three memorial IDs are 31053616, 31053759 and 31053679. My contributor ID is 48704063. Thanks again!

MINER PORTER ~ 27894311
Noticed your wonderful memorial for Miner Porter at Glenwood Cemetery!
I'm trying to find Miner's first wife, Louisa Spaulding, who you say died December 29, 1853.
Do you have any information on her?

Hope to hear from you, Susan

Ugh! Another transposing of numbers, I have given myself 40 wet noodles and it has been fixed.

I originally requested a snapshot when I created the memorial page and a volunteer reported that the grave is unmarked.

Do you have any information on him, that you would like to share on the page? During our 1997 two days visit, we discovered that Peter was not the firstborn of Frederick and Apollonia Feickert. The hunt continued afterward.

Thanks for catching the date mistake, and have a great summer.

You are very welcome. I enjoy my time searching at the cemeteries for request -- and I get some good exercise too. Barb
