I'm a 66yr. old Wife, Mom, Grandmother & a Navy Veteran. I have over 45 yrs. of experience as a Domestic Engineer. My husband & I wish You All Fair Winds and Following seas. We hope you take to heart the following poem for it says it all, to all who are connecting to our past.

"Dear Ancestor"
Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone
The name & date are chiseled out
On polishd marble stone
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn
You did not know that I'd 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

RE: Elizabeth Roedell
Got the messages OK. Tried to update some of the family FAGs and was frustrated. It'll all work out eventially - maybe it would be best to just delete some of the confused ones -like those with 11 kids. I will have to sort it all out. Have had too many questions lately - coming and going! I have been in the mood to get some of my most direct settled before I'm one of them!
too bad about your computer - have been there - no fun to say the least!
Keep in touch!

RE: Sarah Jane (Hicks) Blackstone #155510494
Wanted to let you know I did make it to Colfax to photograph the area around the Blackstone family. I put the same photo on the other three (?) family members' memorials, and hope it is what you had in mind. The view in the other direction had some trees in the distant background, but the gravesite adjoining was fairly new, with the cut in the sod still not covered up, so I went with the photo facing east.

Have a great day and God Bless.

Sorry but I don't live in that state anymore. You will have to request a photo thru the memorial.

I did set up the memorial but it was transferred to another individual at some point. Sorry.

Oldright Family
Hi Kathy, I've noticed your name on several items relating to the Oldright surname. Could you please tell me what your relationship is to this family? I've researched the Oldrights for almost 30 years and I am sure I can help you with any questions you might have. Judy

RE: James E. Chase #29985794
Send me your regular email address please. I have a couple of scanned Obits for you and a picture of another plot in Denny cemetery that is assigned to James Chase. The location is quite a ways away from the Headstone that I sent you a picture of.
Thank you

RE: James E. Chase #29985794
I can go to the historical society next Saturday when they are open and do some searching for you. If you send what info you have birth deaths and marriages along with the names Ill see what I can find out. All three graves were side by side and they were listed together. Is it possible that this is not the right James Chase? Do you know the parents names? If you have a closer date of death other than the year I could go through to old newspapers and see what the obit says.
Thank you
email me at so we dont have to work through find a grave.
