Bio and Links
Bio Photo "Memories of You" was a pop song published in 1930 (lyrics by Andy Razaf; music by Eubie Blake). It was best popularized by the incomparable Benny Goodman and his orchestra. My Dad used to practice it at home on his clarinet when I was a kid, though I never knew what it was called back then, and didn't know the lyrics. Now every time I hear that tune, it brings back my memories of those happy days, and memories of my father and other loved ones gone ahead.

It's been said that no one is finally dead until he is forgotten. Another thought along these lines runs: You are not really dead until after your name is spoken aloud on earth for the last time.

At every gravesite, no matter how old, how poorly marked, how long forgotten, there lies the memory of a precious life lived with a beginning, a middle, an end, and a story worth telling and remembering. Each tombstone marks a significant day of human sorrow. And around most every tombstone was once gathered the unbreakable force of love.

Findagrave and its volunteers are here to respect those memories and to help keep those individual stories and names alive, whenever possible. Each memorial made here is for one more person who is gone but not forgotten.


Turn Again To Life
by Mary Lee Hall

If I should die and leave you here awhile
be not like others sore undone,
who keep long vigil by the silent dust.
For my sake turn again to life and smile,
nerving thy heart and trembling hand
to do something to comfort others than mine.
Complete these dear unfinished tasks of mine
and I perchance may therein comfort you.

Shaw family in Sleepy Hollow Cemetery
I did go to the cemetery today and took photos of the plot/headstones for Albert Elisabeth and Roger Shaw. Unfortunately, looking at them now, Roger's photo is very blurry. I will upload tonight but know that I plan to go back to cemetery tomorrow to retake. You should receive notification shortly as I am uploading. Marie

I am looking for the grave of my great-grandmother, Lizzie (Eliza?) May Powell. She was the sister of Lula Mary Powell Williams (Lee Harrison) and Bertie Elizabeth Powell Hoell (Joseph J), who are both buried in the Sunset Hills Cemetery in Bozeman, Gallatin County, Montana. She was married to Walter Edward Bess Feb 1906 in Cedar County, Missouri. He passed away in Lyon County, Kansas in 1935 and is buried in Missouri. Lizzie later married a man I knew only as Uncle/Grandpa Dick and moved to Bozeman in the later 50s-early 60s. Any info you have would be greatly appreciated.
