|Bio and Links|
I am a collector and amateur historian of early Space Related articles and Military history focused on the AAF in WWII but covering all branches world wide. I have been active in this field since 1990. |
The military history of my family got me started on working my family tree. When I don't have a photo of a member I start looking for there final resting place.
I have always enjoyed helping others in my military research and have also tried to do that in my family history search.
I am not in this for the numbers so I am glad to transfer to family. The whole reason for doing this is for the FAMILY of those at rest, which seems to be forgotten by some members. Maybe they get paid for there numbers? Hah!
I found this poem on fellow member Linda Dukes (46842176) page and really liked it. Linda lists it as Author Unknown. I tweaked it a little so this is my modified version. Thanks for this Linda, I think its great!
Poem for a Genealogist
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 before I was born...
Yet each of us shares cells of you; in flesh, in blood, in bone...
Our heart 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 knew someday; that I would find this spot...
And come to visit you this way; though I did know you not.

I have an obit for this person. Evidently, the size of the photos already posted maxed out the space allowed and I couldn't post the obit. If you would like to have the obit, contact me.
Wanted to thank you for the tombstones you have added. Have run across a few now for my wifes family. Thanks for your work.

Mark, Thank you so very much for the excellent photo of SA Carter's grave marker. Previous to you another individual told me there was no marker for him in the cemetery. Fortunately I accidentally forgot to delete the request. Lucky me!!! I'm very grateful for your generous use of time in helping me. I wish you the very best in all that you do.
