|Bio and Links|
I am a collector and amateur historian of early Space Related articles and Military history focused on the AAF in WWII but covering all branches world wide. I have been active in this field since 1990. |
The military history of my family got me started on working my family tree. When I don't have a photo of a member I start looking for there final resting place.
I have always enjoyed helping others in my military research and have also tried to do that in my family history search.
I am not in this for the numbers so I am glad to transfer to family. The whole reason for doing this is for the FAMILY of those at rest, which seems to be forgotten by some members. Maybe they get paid for there numbers? Hah!
I found this poem on fellow member Linda Dukes (46842176) page and really liked it. Linda lists it as Author Unknown. I tweaked it a little so this is my modified version. Thanks for this Linda, I think its great!
Poem for a Genealogist
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 before I was born...
Yet each of us shares cells of you; in flesh, in blood, in bone...
Our heart 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 knew someday; that I would find this spot...
And come to visit you this way; though I did know you not.

Hey Mark, my husband & I went to Maud Cemetery in Cunnhingham, KS to look for your request for James Branaham. We were unable to find him however we did locate his son. I went ahead and added his information & photo. Let me know if we can be of any other help to ya :)
Thank you so much for locating little Alice's grave site. Her mother, Mary Moore Nation, is my cousin. The ones that knew Mary before she got married and talk to me about her and her sister that married and then both left for Texas with their husbands. There were a few letters, back and forth but not many. Their father remarried and 6 more children were added to the 5 already and several babies deaths. It seems that I was the only one that took notes on paper and and found them in the 1960's but lost them again due to their moving and my moving due to my work. So your finding little Alice is so dear to me. Again, thank you. May you have a blessed day.

Thank you very much for making the requested changes to my mother's information on Find A Grave. Sorry if I offended you in any way with the request. Find A Grave is an invaluable resource tool in family research. I admire the work the Contributors do. Linda D.

When we put our mother's obit in the dallas newspaper four years ago, we didn't realize at the time of our grief, that it would be forever public domain. I'm aware that you didn't just make up the information! The reason for my request is to simply protect the living. Thanks for your help.

It was my pleasure. The Morgan plot is hidden by large cedar bushes at the front, north of the main entrance, just in case you ever visit.

My husband and I have walked this cemetery several times looking for this gravesite. We have found a Marshall plot with a Nannie - Wife of TM Marshall but no Thomas Marshall. If you have any additional information or if you would like us to post these pictures let us know.

Before I post what I found, I need to explain my findings to you so U can tell me what I found and how it plays together. For this answer, I really hope U are family so U will have the answers.
Ellen Clendenon Renfro is buried in the Renfro family plot along with James D. who according to their birthdates are spouses.
At the right far side of the plot is Jane E. Clendening, 2 yrs old and further to the right outside the plot is John Clendenen (your target).
So, given that CLEND is the same but the rest on the other 3 are spelled differently, we can assume written error or stone cutter error and they are actually all the same surname.
Does that sound correct ??
Let me know how to play this, Later, James Coston
