Bio Photo Dear Ancestor

Your tombstone stands among the rest,
neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
on polished marble stone.
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,
so many 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.

AUTHOR- Walter Butler Palmer (1868-1932)

When I post a photo, I do so in order to help others discover their ancestors, however this does not mean that I am giving up my legal rights to these photos.

I am happy to allow personal use of my photos, as long as the use is not-for-profit and not posted elsewhere on for-profit internet sites.

Please do not move a burial unknown memorial into a cemetery where I already placed a memorial and tell me I have to remove my "duplicate" memorial. The site rules clearly differentiate between burial unknown memorials and memorials that were placed in a cemetery correctly.
