Bio Photo DEAR ANCESTOR,

YOUR GRAVESTONE
STANDS AMONG THE REST,
FORGOTTEN AND FORLORN.
YOUR NAME AND DATE ARE CHISELED OUT,
ON SLATE OR OLD LIMESTONE,
IT REACHES OUT TO ALL WHO CARE,
IT'S NOT 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,
OF FLESH AND BLOOD AND BONE
OUR HEART CONTRACTS AND BEATS A PULSE,
ENTIRELY NOT OUR OWN.
DEAR ANCESTOR, THE PLACE YOU FILLED,
SO MANY YEARS AGO,
SPREAD OUT AMONG THE ONES YOU LEFT,
WHO WOULD HAVE LOVED YOU SO.
I KNOW THAT YOU LIVED AND LOVED,
BUT, I WONDER IF YOU KNEW,
SOMEDAY I WOULD FIND THIS SPOT,
AND COME TO VISIT YOU.

Hi Roberta,
You asked about listing the wives of Ray in a different order. That is done by listing the marriage dates in the linking box. I didn't have that info, but maybe you do, otherwise they are listed alphabetically by surname.

RE: Eugene I Barnes
Hi Roberta. No worries, but you didn't provide any IDs, so I can't find yours or mine. I created 143553412 on Mar 09, 2015, but you're talking about one created in December. Hmm. Thanks.

RE: Hi... me again
I can not find any link to your Commodore Perry Cullen 1850-1931. I hope that these are the dates. I did find a Bill at wyates@montana.com that had him on Roots and I found pictures on Ancestry.
I did copy the pictures so I would have them just in case and if you would like I can send them to you if you will give me your email address.

Cullen Family
Hi, my wife has Cullen's in her family and we are wondering if you have the same.
Her great grandfather was Hezekiah D Cullen 1873-1967 and his father and mother were James Kiser Cullen 1835-1907 and mother Christina Harshbarger 1835-1910.
Do these names ring a bell????

Joseph Weber # 39430302
Hi Roberta,
I have an obituary for Joseph Weber that my grandmother saved. She scrapbooked her entire life. I've been going through her books and connecting with people on Find a Grave to find homes for the obits she saved. Please send me your email, if you'd like to add this to Joseph's memorial. Thanks!

Charles D Frain
Hello I am up dating a family history, Berkebile families in America, 6th edition of which Charles D Frain is a member. Could I use your picture of him in the new edition? You would of course have credit for the photo.
