I started taking pictures and adding data after my own mother died. |
I was doing research on a neighborhood history project and accidently ran across a picture of that families' mausoleum on find a grave.
After looking at the site, I decided to add my family to the collection. When I took pictures of my families stones, I took others near them. Then I took pictures of good looking stones and monuments and odd ones or old ones.
Now, I try to honor any I find. I feel I am helping people find their history and honoring those who went before us.
I hope that if anyone finds their loved ones through me, that they will see it in that way.
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.

I found this lovely poem on the site of Dave Buckmaster - I loved it and "borrowed" it.

Just a point of interest. Judge Woods & his family were near neighbors of my grandfather Fred Green, in Lakewood. Small world.

|Edwin Poor||Wrong date Maria Sanborn|
Maria died in 1913 stone is apparently incorrect.
The Recorder's book containing the death certificate says several times 1913. Top of page has two dates Sept 18 and next to it is 1913 very neatly written. Maybe the informant was a bit weak in the mind but that's what she wrote
|Pattie Welsh||RE: Bigelow|
My sentiments exactly! Thanks so much. I once had a find a grave person who would not transfer my grandparents. I was fine with that until they said it was because I had more memorials than I entered. I didn't bother to explain that I volunteered to take a deceased "gravers" memorials for them.
Kindness goes along way.
Again Thanks for your work here.
|Pattie Welsh||West Richfield Cemetery|
Thanks for all you do here. It is greatly appreciated. I was wondering if I could use the TS photos you took for Mabel and Marlin Bigelow on my ancestry site.
They are my 4th great grandparents. So happy to have found them.
