Bio Photo Born in North Platte, Nebraska. Currently live in Bossier City, Louisiana.

Please feel free to request transfer of memorials. I grant management of memorials that I have created, to both family and friends. As long as their is positive intent, I have no problem relinquishing management of memorials. The whole point of graving is remembering those gone before us. This is information to be shared, not hoarded.

Here's a little personal dittie that I have written about graving

"Tis rock and stone and fence and mound I seek.
A lonely grave on a grassy knoll, inside my heart I keep.

A grandfather, not once but twice my great,
was buried there a'fore my eyes opened
for the first time.

An Auntie took me there, so long ago. I myself have been there, so I know
That there he rests, among the hills, and calves, and grass, and sky, and wind.

But I myself like him, am now so old, I can't remember all the stories told. Nor where exactly lies this grassy grave. Where a man once homesteaded and stood so brave.

I want to put a flower on his stone, to let him know that he is not alone. Round the bend, I go and carry with, My honor and my love, for Grandpa Smith.

But sun is going down, and I don't see, the very place I seek where he should be. Perhaps tomorrow will find me, finding him. If not, the grass keeps blowing in the wind."

In memory of Edmond Elliot Smith (1840-1908)

RE: Edmund Elliot Smith
Nice to hear from you!! I also am at a loss why Gertrude was in Arkansas. My great-aunt Petrie who was a grandaughter of Hayden and Gertrude might have known but she has been loosing her mind for several years before I contacted her. The only clue I have is that one of Hayden's daughters by his second marriage is buried there with her husband. But this girl wasn't born until after Gertrude died. I love the poem you wrote too! It took me soo long to find Edmund and Ellen because all I had to go on was the names! I believe the picture is Hayden Jacob and Gertrude. Hayden is a prominent name in the Petrie family, right down to my father, who is Hayden. Thanks a lot for replying!! Amber (Genealogy Nut)

Hi, my name is Amber and I am a direct descendent of Edmund. I was curious if you knew anything about his daughter Gertrude. I am descended through Gertrude but have hit a dead end in finding where she is buried. Can you be of any help? I have extensive info on Gertrude's husband's (Hayden Jacob Petrie) family as that is one of my main lines. I look forward to hearing from you!
