Bio Photo Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the gnat on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
I am the quiet hummingbird in circling flight.
I am the mouse that stirs at night.
Do not stand by my grave and cry.
I am not there. I did not die.


When I come to the end of the road,
And the sun has set for me,
I want no rites in a gloom filled room,
Why cry for a soul set free.
Miss me a little~But not too long,
And not with your head bowed low,
Remember the love that we once shared,
Miss Me~But let me go.

For this is a journey we all must take,
And each must go alone,
It's all a part of the master's plan,
A step on the road to home.
So when you are lonely and sick at heart,
Go to the friend we know,
And bury your sorrow in doing good deeds,
Miss me~But let me go.

**Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard but always near, still loved, still missed, forever dear.**

West Hanson Cemetery
A helpful non Find A Grave member photographed some of the tombstones on West Hanson Cemetery that I was seeking. So I created the posting of West Cemetery, Groton, Brown County, SD. It still lacks a picture identifying the cemetery or its exact location. So if your cousin visits, that would be appreciated. They say cemetery records for West Hanson are at St. Paul's in Ferney.

Hello Christy,
I tried to reply to your message via email but it was returned to me. I really do not know much abt. the family. What was your question, maybe I can point you in the right direction. Sandy

James White
Hello Cristy,
I am wondering if you are a relative of James and Mary White. James and my grandma were first cousins. I grew up with the family going to Trinity Free Will Baptist Church, but things happened that separated us when I was young. Jimmy was my Sunday School teacher at one point in time back then.
I have been trying to locate Jimmy for many years, but have not been successful.
If you are part of the family and may know of a way that I can make contact with Jimmy or if any other others might be interested, please email me at
Hoping and praying that I hear from you! I live in Macomb County, MI.
Thank you,
Sharon (Gates) Flora

RE: West Hanson Cemetery
Thanks for asking your cousin about the Brown County SD cemeteries. I am still not certain that St. Paul is West Hanson.

See this website:

It indicates a St. John's is in West Hanson township. Is this cemetery even documented on Find a Grave?

West Hanson Cemetery
I see you have submitted the photograph of St. Paul's Lutheran Cemetery, Would you photograph & post the tombstone pictures of Unknown Mielke's listed on this cemetery, to help identify them? --when the snow is gone !!!

I am seeking West Hanson Cemetery, a country cemetery in Brown County SD. Wondering if this St. Paul Cemetery is also known as West Hanson? I am seeking the grave of Frank (1848-1923) and Agnes Dobberphuhl (1855-1897) at West Hanson Cemetery, Brown County, SD. They would be the parents of
John W. Dobberpfuhl
Minnie Dobberpfuhl Mielke
Laura Dobberpfuhl Lorenz
Lena Dobberpfuhl Meister
Sara Dobberpfuhl Mielke

I am wondering if the unknown Mielke graves are the Dobberpfuhl daughters.

RE: Frederick Davis
Dear Cristy: (Latter-Day Saints site) should have a record for Frederick A. Davis's birth/death, which may also list his mother's maiden surname and his father's surname. Someone has linked Mary Ann as his mother, my assumption was that since she was married to Davis that he might have been Frederick's father. But I have not confirmed any of that by searching at familysearch. ~ BL
