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 visit you."
(This poem was written in 1906 by Walter Butler Palmer)
I work hard to get my information as accurate as possible and am thankful when other contributors do the same. I generally don't enter information such as inscriptions that are easily readable from the picture (why by redundant?), but I'm happy to make any corrections needed. Just please use the "Edit" tab on the memorial. It's easier to manage the emails that way. Thanks!
Photo's: Please feel free to make copies of the photo's that I have taken and posted here. I do ask that if you post them to other websites please give me credit for taking them as a courtesy.

Hi there JP.
Thanks for all the time with the photos. You gave me the inspiration to continue on that limb of the tree.
Merry Christmas to you and all yours.
Bud, a Ct. Yankee deep in the South.
PS. My best friend all thru High School was "PJ". I gave him that nickname in the late '40's
His was Paul John. BB

You took and posted a photo to Find A Grave memorial # 58169824 - for Walter J McCarroll.
Do you mind placing the photo on Walter's wife's memorial? Her Find A Grave # is 58169757 and her name is Johanna Murphy McCarroll.

Thank you very much for the photos and a humongous "THANK YOU" for the photos showing the whole family. I will put more requests up so don't delete your photos yet.
Best regards to you and all yours, Bud.

Dear JP: Many thanks for your efforts.

Oops, that William Rapp was my wife's great uncle, not g-g-grandfather. They were both William Rapp, thus the confusion.

Thank you so much for taking the picture of the Rapp/Geyer monument (bush!) for me. William Rapp was my wife's great-great-grandfather. Looks like William Rapp was buried with his wife's family--we didn't know that.
Thank you so very much for your selfless, wonderful gift.

Wow! How many times I must have driven past Bill and there he is. Thanks for the photo. I see you are enjoying some snow. I've been waiting for 7 years. I don't think we will get any here!:)
