Bio Photo If anyone has anything to add to a memorial I've made PLEASE let me know and I will be glad to add the information! I Love to link their parents to each memorial or have their obituary to add.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I'm interested about who my ancestors were and how they may have influenced who I am today. I am also researching my husbands ancestors and am learning as much as I can to pass on to our daughter. It's also fascinating to learn about the many different church backgrounds they all have had. Still searching in PA!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I found this through a friend:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
DEAR ANCESTOR,
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled 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, 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.
Written by:
Walter Butler Palmer

Hi Laura ! sorry , my mistake , I'm still working on Juliana's husband , Franz Ludwig Eline 's 1st wife's full name . I've been given Maria ?
Juliana's son Francis was married to Catharine Eck . That is correct .

Are you also related to the family ?

Great. I thought both of them had great parts to them. I'm glad that if she doesn't change the cemetery mistake, you would keep yours.
