Please feel free to contact me about any graves I have listed. If I have listed someone that you are related to and I am not and you would like them transferred to you, please just let me know. If we are both related then I will have to think about it. Please feel free to use any of my photo's anywhere you want.

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
(rev 21:4)

"Dear Ancestor
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and the date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who cares
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
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."
-Poem by Walter Butler Palmer


A limb has fallen from the family tree.
I keep hearing a voice that says, "Grieve not for me.
Remember the best times, the laughter, the song.
The good life I lived while I was strong.
Continue my heritage, I'm counting on you.
Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through.
My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest.
Remembering all, how I truly was blessed.
Continue traditions, no matter how small.
Go on with your life, don't worry about falls
I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin.
Until the day comes we're together again.

RE: Call Cemetery
The pictures I submitted are all that have markers in the Call Cemetery, except one that was overturned face down. It was too heavy to stand up by myself. There were two other graves there that are not listed on findagrave, Clifford James Stiltner and Effie L. Call.

Hi Barbara,

Did you get the email I sent to you? I sent it to "".

That had the pictures attached.

Below is the message:

Hi Barbara,

I’m really new to the web-site, but am really into this. Allen E. Smith came up as a request find. I found the stone and posted it. That removed your request. However, I deleted that pick as it appear to say Alice E Smith with the same DOD, 1853. However, on Allen’s site 5905716, there is a shortcut to an Alice Eudora Smith with the same family, but said her DOD was also same month, day and year as Allen, but in New York. 87793877.

I have attached the pics we got in Oswego IL. I thought it was Allen, but looks like Alice. Very confused…..

Please let me know what to do.

The monument has four sides. 1 side says Charlie D. Smith. 1 side says Josiah W. Smith and Lorana Andrews. 1 side either has Allen or Alice - Says “Died Jan. 20, 1853” “ Aged 4 yrs, 16 D”. You can see the middle initial of “E”.

Anyway what are ya thinking?

Hi Barbara,

I thought I sent you an email directly to your email about the situation. I'm currently at work, but tonight will try to paste/copy to this service.

Basically, I thought I found Alan, but looked like, "Alice". When I researched more, there was an Alice with all of the same information / DOB, DOD, family, etc, only in the New York area.

The monument has four sides to it. The one side had the parents, to the one side it was either Alan or Alice and the other side was Clarence? (going by memory) and the forth side was blank.

So I put that I found him and uploaded the pic, but when I looked and found there was an Alice, I took the picture down. It was all very confusing. But I will get with the grounds-keeper and try to figure it out. Until then, I'll try to find the email I sent you.

RE: Infant Son Rouse
Did not know there was a request for it until I posted it and a "thank you" popped up! Do you need any others from Josephine County? I have hundreds, maybe thousands.

RE: Missing Photo
I didn't remove it - must be a glitch in their system. I'm currently in Wisconsin and won't be home for another two weeks. I'll have to check my files and repost if I can find it. Strange.

Old Quaker Burial Ground
There are no headstones. Quakers did not mark the graves (at least up here).
The photo of the Old Burying Ground in Queensbury that is posted at Find a Grave is what anyone looking will find if they visit the actual burial ground.
