|Bio and Links|
This site serves as a database so that present and future generations can find those they seek. It is used by professional genealogists, as well as amateurs, and is owned by Ancestry.com. If you've used Ancestry and found a link to Find A Grave, it is because of the work of many volunteers who pursue this endeavor with an earnest regard to preserve history for future generations. I was able to trace our family back 13 generations in America (arriving in 1633) with the aid of Ancestry and those who contribute to this site, and it is my desire to "pay it forward" by doing the same for others.|
Please keep in mind that this pursuit is completely done by VOLUNTEERS who spend countless hours in this dedicated effort. There is no need to feel offended if you find your relatives listed by a contributor, for that is the purpose of this site (after all, isn't that why you have come here?).
Please feel free to ask for a transfer if you find one of your relatives posted here by me (or any other contributor). Most folks will gladly transfer relatives to family members. Please state your relationship to the person in the listing and use the edit tab on the memorial to request the transfer. If you don't wish to manage the memorial, I will gladly add any biographical information you would like.
My primary focus at present lies in photo-documenting the final resting places of veterans. I once found a poem written on a memorial for a young soldier and it stays with me. I believe it was originally from a speech at the conclusion of the Civil War. In part: "Nor shall your glory be forgot while Fame her record keeps; for Honor marks the hallowed spot where Valor proudly sleeps". I am privileged to preserve these markers for future generations. After all, their valor is our heritage.
History is made every day...ALWAYS REMEMBER!

Good Morning, I would like to request that this memorial for Eva G. Nelson be transferred to me. I'am her son John, my findagrave #46810729. Thank you for adding this memorial.

This is a duplicate for an already established Find A Grave individual. Only different is - that that individual has him listed as Burial Unknown. That Find A Grave number is 39271354
|Starfishin||Who wrote it....|
"Nor shall your glory be forgot while Fame her record keeps..." is from the poem "The Bivouac of the Dead" by Theodore O'Hara, a lawyer,journalist and soldier from Kentucky. He wrote it, appropriately enough, while walking in the Frankfort Cemetery following his return from the Mexican-American War. The poem was first read there at the dedication of a monument in 1850, and O'Hara continued to revise it throughout his lifetime.
Theodore O'Hara's memorial is Find A Grave Memorial# 4236. The text of the poem can be found here: http://www.uky.edu/KentuckyCulture/bivouac.html
Thanks for all you do on behalf of everyone who, in one way or another, relies on Find A Grave.
