I started taking pictures and adding data after my own mother died. |
I was doing research on a neighborhood history project and accidently ran across a picture of that families' mausoleum on find a grave.
After looking at the site, I decided to add my family to the collection. When I took pictures of my families stones, I took others near them. Then I took pictures of good looking stones and monuments and odd ones or old ones.
Now, I try to honor any I find. I feel I am helping people find their history and honoring those who went before us.
I hope that if anyone finds their loved ones through me, that they will see it in that way.
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 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.

I found this lovely poem on the site of Dave Buckmaster - I loved it and "borrowed" it.

You are very welcome for the links.
My grandmother was a Joyce before marriage and I am distantly related to Lois.
Whenever I see Joyce on a memorial that I know is a maiden name listed as a middle name, I try to let the contributor know.
It's only natural to possibly assume that Joyce would be a middle name, especially when you consider Lois moved to Ohio, and out of the area she came from where there are an absolute tons of Joyces.
Thank you for linking, especially for the Virginia Joyces, who are harder to track since the records aren't readily available, as they are for the North Carolina Joyces.
Have a great day!

Thank you for the updates and links. I appreciate it. I so enjoy the linking aspect of Find A Grave.
Thanks for the effort & confirmation. Since you have a (more extensive??) McCamey branch of your tree, I wonder if you might have a missing link I've been trying to track down for my cousin? The John Bruce McCamey we previously discussed, had a son William around 1851. We believe Wm is my cousin's GGPa, via son Clyde and Clyde's son Robert. We've tracked Clyde & his mother & siblings from PA to Lima, OH area as of the 1900 census. It appears Wm had also moved to OH but passed by the time of the 1900 census. We've been unable to document Wm's death (where & when) and absolutely confirm the line from Clyde back to John Bruce. If you would have anything on this, a response would be greatly appreciated. If you want to take this off-line, I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks again.

If I am not mistaken, you are the originator and guardian of memorials for John Bruce McCamey (#58435260) and his parents John (#23502301) and Jane (#58427386). If you concur, would you please link John Bruce to his parents. I am an interested party, as this line traces ancestors of my first cousin, a McCamey himself. The family populates a branch of my tree by virtue of a McCamey marrying my mother's sister. Thank you.

|JM||I noticed your request|
After sending you a message on my Aunt's listing I noticed you were looking for a few other graves in Calvary. I don't recall the first names, I apologize, but I know there are DiVenturas by my grandparents' grave there. I remember the last name because I graduated from high school with someone of the same last name.
If you drive straight to the very back road that goes to the left. Just after the last tree along the road on the left in the second row back is are my grandparents (Maucieri). Near their tombstone is a DiVentura. It's a long shot, but if you're in the area it might be worth a peek. I am up in Johnstown, so I'm sorry that I can't easily/quickly look for you and report back.
