Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm researching my family (Fisher, Sandoz, Ferrel, Hankins, Bomar/Bomer/Bowmar/Boomer, Phillips, Hidlay, Sears, Melcher, Swanger, Denham/Denum/Denim, Tripp, Renner, Fullingim, Barnes, Nielsen, Rhodes, Monk), and recording their graves, so they are not forgotten. I'm willing to help others locate / photograph memorials as I can.


Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where others cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.

Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In a heartbreak of the ages.

Today we saw there the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.

Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lied beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.

Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.

Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.

Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

Pauline Kennedy
I went and got pics per your request for Pauline Kennedy's grave yesterday.
There is a Philip James Ryan 1903-1975 in the same Lot she is in on one side of her.
There is a Kurt Sabisch 1898-1984 on the other side of her but this Kurt is in the Lot next to the Lot Pauline is in.
I don't suppose either of them are related but am just mentioning them in case you know otherwise.

RE: Bomar/Fielding
We spoke in October and I have tried to get all my ducks in a row.
My grandparents were:
Reno Eugene McWilliams 1877-1962/
Elizabeth Augusta Guille (she died before my parents were married. I know for a fact that he was 20 years older than she was))
My great-great grandparents were: Reno's parents
Francis Alvin McWilliams 1844-1933 and
Frances Ellen "Fannie" Bomar 1849-1942
Fannie's parents were
Spencer Bomar 1810-1884. He was the Postmaster at Green Pond, Walker County, Georgia. I believe his wife was Mary Jane McWilliams.
From here, it gets a little sketchy.
Armistead R Bomar 1768-1840/Elizabeth Younger 1774--1850
John A Bomar 1728-1799/Barbara Bush 1745-1799
then Edward B Bomar and Isabella Fielding I live close to Spartanburg County

RE: James Rice
Hello! For some reason, I just found this message. Yes, please transfer both James and Ann Rice (my Mother and Father) to me. And thank you so much for adding these to Find A Grave. I no longer live in Wyoming, and have not yet been able to visit their graves.

I am trying to put together my family tree. John Armistead Bomar was my 4th great-grandfather. My relatives moved to Walker County, Georgia. I think before that they were in Spartanburg County, SC. Do you know any history?

RE: Thank you! - Neva
Hope you saw my reply on Ancestry - found it attached to hints, it is a Pennsylvania death cert viewable on-line.

RE: Thank you!
Sorry there was no marker. "Leonard" is between Elsie M. Kiser and Doris L. Dailey. Horace and Ruby are quite a ways away in another section. After researching "Leonard" a bit, I believe him to be a Putnam.

Grover Swanger
Grover Swanger in Ellison Cemetery in Iowa. He was my moms uncle. I thought he needed his name on his headstone. So I had my local funeral home make me a marker. Last year when we went to Iowa someone had broke it and took my paper out. What information do you have on him. Mom said that her mom would tell her he died at age 5 and that she used to play with him. But by the dates here he died before my mom was born. Thank you
