The earth will never be the same again.
Rock, water, tree, iron share this grief
As distant stars participate in pain.
A candle snuffed, a falling star or leaf,
A dolphin death, O this particular loss
Is Heaven-mourned; for if no angel cried,
If this small one was tossed away as dross,
The very galaxies then would have lied.
How shall we sing our love's song now
In this strange land where all are born to die?
Each tree and leaf and star show how
The universe is part of this one cry,
That every life is noted and cherished,
And nothing loved is ever lost or perished.

I currently live in Charleston, South Carolina

RE: Memorial# 10458894
Strange because Yvette is the cousin of a cousin (if that makes sense). Not sure why she would say he came from Canada....??? All the information listed on the memorial is correct for Roy H. Kelley of our family, including the picture that I had posted, but not sure if it's all for the correct person now.

I see that you originally created this memorial and transferred it to Yvette. I was wondering if you would happen to know who to contact (other than Yvette) that may have info about Roy. I'm not 100% sure that this is my uncle and would like to find out for sure.

Thank you for the work you do. My long lost half-brother's family found me through Find A Grave last January. He did not know I existed and I had hit a brick wall trying to find him years ago. Now I have nieces and a big new family, thanks to Robin Moore's dedication to the cause.

RE: Re: Clara Woodward
Hi Monica,
You are probably right about Clara's father being in rough shape & dying. Curious because her mother kept the remainder of her children together. Clara was adopted by James & Esther Bateham who had a farm on what is now Detroit Metro Airport. It worked out fine for Clara b.1870 because she married their son William Bateham b.1861 (Detroit policeman), was widowed & then married their grandson Charles Rowell b.1871 (Bill's sister Charlotte's son)!

Re: Clara Woodward
Hi Monica,
My husband's great G-G-Grandparents are Esther(Frey) & James Bateham. Do you know why Clara Woodward ended up being adopted by them? She married their son William Bateham and then my husband's G-Grandfather Charles E. Rowell. Seems to be a very interesting story there! Thanks, Carol

Zoar United Methodist Church, Greer
Hello Monica, I know you have worked on the memorials from Zoar. I was wondering if you saw a marker for Mary Ann Green Wilson. According to her birth certificate she is there. Her Father is Whitten Green (Find A Grave Memorial# 19185233) who you transferred. Mary was the second wife of Miles Hilton Wilson (Find A Grave Memorial# 35539500), my Great Grandfather. I may have a family member check it but I was just wondering if you had recorded the whole cemetery. Thanks
