|Bio and Links|
I have always loved walking through cemeteries and reading the inscriptions on the stones, so this is the perfect volunteer opportunity for me! I am more than willing to take pictures of headstones in my area, just ask! Feel free to copy any of my pictures for your own use. |
I will gladly transfer any of my memorial who are not related to me, within FAG guidelines. Please use the edit tab for all requests and corrections/additions. If you are requesting a transfer, please state how you are related to the deceased.
Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished marble 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 and 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
Walter Butler Palmer
TO THOSE WHO SLEEP IN UNMARKED GRAVES:
We have searched diligently for your identity but too many times in vain. You have a right to a stone with your name and dates marking the six feet of earth where you sleep. Many of you once had stones, but time has taken its toll. Your descendants live in faraway places or are no more. The land has changed ownership many times. The fences are gone and livestock wander your graves. Grasping hands always wanting a few more feet of land, and now your gravesite is lost forever to a subdivision. We know you were placed there by loving hands and broken hearts many years ago. We know that you were happy; you were sad; you laughed; you cried; and that you loved. We gaze in admiration when we find the tall cedar trees, the yellow buttercups, the blue periwinkle and the white bridal wreath blooming each spring for you, and in loyalty to the one who planted them there on your grave.

Kristy, I have connected Mr. Watts to his parents per your request. Thank you for the information.
|Missouri Duv||Mynatt Scott|
I received a large business size envelope today with the sad news of Mynatt's passing. His daughter enclosed a short note, the obit and a speech she had written and the "brochure" celebrating his life. It grieves me, that I did not hear of this in time to attend the funeral but treasure the few visits we did share. Thank you for your wonderful entry. Are you related?
|Kim Ehlers||Berniece Schultz|
Please accept my sincere apology for placing Berniece on Findagrave. I used records from the library to put records on-obviously those records are not accurate!
I loved your quotes. I borrowed or stole one of them. The last one. I am going to put it on Facebook.
|This Side of the Grave||Dorothy Rippy|
Thank you for the update on Dorothy.
|Old Country Roots||RE: Zink|
Just drop me a line if you ever find anything you need looked up. :)
My Basil was born in 1865 and died in 1936.
This is him: #68655557 He married a sister to my husbands grandfather.
|Old Country Roots||Zink|
I think I transferred them all. If you find any more, just ask. I have a Basil Zink on my husbands side. Any relation?
I also have a couple of books "The Indexed Marriage Records of St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church of Massbach, Illinois; Record Books 1-3: 1859-1932" and "The Indexed Burial Records of St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church of Massbach, Illinois; Record Books 1-3: 1858-1932" both translated & transcribed by Joel Zink. If you would like me to look up anything in them, just let me know. It looks like there are a bunch of Zink's in them.
You can email me direct: firstname.lastname@example.org
|Old Country Roots||Zink|
I think I've got the names fixed and everyone linked. I would be happy to transfer if you would like.
|Thomas Tait||Anita White|
Thank you very much for the transfer :)
