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 REACHES OUT TO ALL WHO CARE
IT IS TOO LATE TO MOURN
YOU DO 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?

Transfer of your husband's Uncle transferred to your care. Sorry, don't know how I missed this request.

RE: RE:Jetton's; AZ.
I'm going to say no at this time. One Jetton was in Arizona, but his younger sister died prior to marriage.

Thank you for the note. I see there is a second memorial by Bob Mead. I have sent him a note and asked if he would consider removing his memorial. I do not see any links on his memorial. It seems to be only for the history and for having her listed in Find A Grave. Sarah is my great aunt and I have the memorial linked to family. I would very much like to keep mine. I have left him my email and asked him to get in touch with me. I do not know when he might get back to me but I will update you with developments.

Thank you,
Douglas King Sr.

RE: RE:FAG#11220449
You can create the memorial for her and post the photo. Link her to George Mills since you have her info. Are you family to the Mills? Let me know if you would like to be his caretaker.

Best regards,
Karl Kueteman

RE: FAG#26903694
No, sorry. Only Fanny and Mary are showing up there. We took photos of every stone and posted every one that had not already been posted.

One thing I do have that you might like is a spread sheet of those buried there. It shows 3 lots (18 spaces) that were owned by the 2 of them, 6 by Fanny Wallace and 12 by Mary Wallace. It also shows who is buried in the remaining 16 spaces.

I tried to fit it into this message box and it's all scrambled. If you would like to have it send me an email and I will respond with the info.
