Bio Photo STRANGERS IN THE BOX

Come, look with me inside this drawer,
In this box I've often seen,
At the pictures, black and white,
Faces proud, still, serene.
I wish I knew the people,
These strangers in the box,
Their names and all their memories
Are lost among my socks.
I wonder what their lives were like,
How did they spend their days?
What about their special times?
I'll never know their ways.
If only someone had taken time
To tell who, what, where, or when,
These faces of my heritage
Would come to life again.
Could this become the fate
Of the pictures we take today?
The faces and the memories
Someday to be passed away?
Make time to save your stories,
Seize the opportunity when it knocks,
Or someday you and yours could be
The strangers in the box.

The limbs that move, the eyes that see,
These are not entirely me;
Dead men and women helped to shape
The mold which I do not escape;
The words I speak, my written line,
These are not uniquely mine.
For in my heart and in my will
Old ancestors are warring still,
Celt, Roman, Saxon, and all the dead
From whose rich blood my veins are fed,
In aspect, gesture, voices, tone,
Flesh of my flesh, bone of my bone;
In fields they tilled I plow the sod,
I walk the mountain paths they trod;
And round my daily steps arise
The good and bad of those I comprise.

Sorry to be so long in getting back you, I pulled the records that was sent to me for this cemetery, and there was a possibility that it was printed wrong.

It also stated only a Funeral home marker, at times so people wont photo them if they are not readable.

I will transfer the memorial to you as I am not related. Have a good day.

Oscar H Heatherington
Hi, I submitted an edit on a memorial you created for Oscar H Heatherington. His middle name is listed as Horace, by his son who was the informant on Oscars death certificate. However, on Oscar's WWI Draft Registration card, his middle name is listed as Harrison, and it is signed by Oscar himself as " Oscar Harrison Heatherington". This is the proper Oscar, because his wife Josephine is listed also. His son was mistaken about his middle name, which wouldn't be unusual. Informants often make errors in giving information on death certificates. Please look at his WW I registration.
Thank You
Mark

Hi,

You posted a photo to the memorial of Carl Brittain Fender #87341255. I just found out that it is a duplicate memorial and I will delete it soon. Would you mind moving your photo to the older memorial #80294919.

Thanks
