Bio Photo DEAR ANCESTOR

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 age
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.

Madden Church
Small world too. I sent you a message about my Aunt and Uncle Quinton Theo and Verna Moore Young. My wifes mother was from Fryeburg and she was Doris Louise (Loflin) Short who is buried in Providence Cemetery in Ringgold but we have not gotten a tombstone for her as yet. The reason for this message is to tell you that I have a picture of the Madden Church congregation dated in 1948 but I do not have names for them. My wife is also related to the Powell Family and I have a geneology print out on them. If you need to contact me on any of these, please let me know at geraldallen@bellsouth.net.

Young and Hicks
My name is Gerald Allen, Pat Carter's cousin. I am working on Find a Grave also. I see you wrote Pat Carter about Quinton Theo Young, and Verna Moore Young. Verna is my Aunt my mothers half sister. Her mother (my grandmother) is Mamie Hicks (Britt 1st marriage) then to Elisha Moore. If I can help you in any way, please let me know.

I am sorry, I didn't understand about how the McCains became Pates. Who are the McCains ?

RE: Nancy Pate West
Hi Virginia, I am sorry you could not find the markers of Stephen and Nancy West. The markers are very hard to read.But Stephen has a new C.S.A. marker in front of his old marker. I know their markers are there. It seems like I remember their markers were about middle of the cemetery.

Catherine Pate
Hello Virginia! Are you a descendant of Catherine Pate? I noticed you left flowers on the memorial page I created from what sketchy information I had. Thank you and have a great day!

RE: Amy Lane
Thank you...but Amy was still alive when her daughter died in 1961. I'm sorry I haven't researched any other people on the Wilson branch yet. Just focusing on this couple for now. I was sick for a week and then vowed no family history for another week so I could catch up with other things. Thanks Cousin.
