Bio and Links
Bio Photo How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day's
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning

I felt a Funeral, in my Brain,
And Mourners to and fro
Kept treading treading till it seemed
That Sense was breaking through

And when they all were seated,
A Service, like a Drum
Kept beating beating till I thought
My Mind was going numb

And then I heard them lift a Box
And creak across my Soul
With those same Boots of Lead, again,
Then Space began to toll,

As all the Heavens were a Bell,
And Being, but an Ear,
And I, and Silence, some strange Race
Wrecked, solitary, here

And then a Plank in Reason, broke,
And I dropped down, and down
And hit a World, at every plunge,
And Finished knowing then
Emily Dickinson

RE: walnut grove Cemetery
Hi Susan

This is technically 2 cemeteries according to the maps I have seen. They have been fully photographed by James Bianco, myself and 2 other people since 2006. If you click on the cemetery photo, scroll through all of them and you can see the plot map made in 1970.

The East Congregational Church burned in 1925, and the cemetery(ies) had been in operation for 99 years at that point. (Conkey's history of Ware)So I am assuming that the cemetery records burned as well.

I am in the process of photographing Old Saint Wiliams Cemetery on West Street. Very interesting. I've started on the side with the black gate, and also worked all the outside borders. I'd love to go graving with you sometime if you want, neighbor! (Just moved off Church street!) Any other questions, please write again!

RE: Teofila Baldyga
It's great you added both pics! I as working on a tree today and figured out that a brother and sister from the Kurr family seem to have married a step sister and step brother from the Baldyga family. You'll see another request for the same cemetery referencing the names Kurr and Baldyga as a result of the discovery!
