Ancestor Poem Your tombstone stands among the rest Neglected and alone The name and date are chiseled 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 and 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
92575225 Phyllis McElroy She was the wife of my Dad's First Cousin. The Social Security gives her birth date as July 25, 1938 and her death date as January 17,2012. If you would not mind could her Memorial be given to her family. Thank you for the beautiful job on the creation of her Memorial.
Daniel Howard Fobes Thank you for adding a tombstone photo that you took. As you can see by the one I added, I was _very new_ to the art of taking tombstone photos. It is nice to have a legible tombstone photo on the memorial.

I ran across your Stockings while trying to link up some of my own. I believe the memorial you have for Sidney Stocking is a cenotaph. He died in Akron and was buried in Glendale Cemetery. His son Alexander died the following year and was also buried there, beside his father. The family then moved to Massillon, where son Jeremiah died in 1847 - he was buried in Massillon, but was then moved to Glendale, according to the burial book. Two infant grandchildren of Sidney's are also buried on the adjoining lot. This part of the cemetery is very old, and most of the early stones are fallen and under the sod. I'll have to go out when the weather is better and see if I can find any trace of the tombstones. Louisa died 40 years after her husband, after moving around the country quite a bit. I think that Sidney's name was added to her stone so they would be 'together' but his body is still in Akron, along with his two sons. There is no mention in the Glendale burial book of a removal. Both memorials for Sidney are legit, but the linking will prove tricky! Any ideas you may have would be appreciated. Currently, I had him linked to his two sons and had requested a link to his daughter Sophia, but have deleted the request. I see you have him already linked with four of his other children. Maybe we should have all the children linked to your cenotaph, with a double link to the wife. I have added an internal link in my memorial for him to yours. Mine is #158065264.
