We Are Chosen
My feelings are in each family there are those who seem called to find their ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again. To tell their story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts, but, breathing life into all who have gone before us.
They cry out: "Tell our story!!" So, we do.
In finding them, we somehow find ourselves. How many graves have I stood before now and cried? I have lost count. How many times have I told my ancestors you have a wonderful family, you would be proud of us… How many times have I walked up to a grave and felt somehow there was love there for us…I cannot say.
It goes beyond just documenting facts. It goes to who we are and why we do the things we do. It goes to seeing a cemetery about to be lost forever to weeds and indifference and saying I can't let this happen. The folks here are bones of my bones and flesh of my flesh. It goes to doing something about it. It goes to pride in what our ancestors were able to accomplish. How they contributed to what we are today. It goes to respecting their hardships and losses. Their never giving up or never giving in. Their resoluteness to go on and build a life for their family.
With love and caring we record each fact of their existence. Because we are them and they are us. We might be born that we might remember them. So, we the chosen tell their story.

|Misty & Company||A.Hawkins|
I am related by marriage to Albert Edward Hawkins, Sr's grandson, Gary Edward
Hawkins. I understand in reading your profile you are not accepting any
suggested changes although I know Albert Sr was born in England and baptized at
the Poplar Christ Church in London, England, and I have a copy of his SS Death
Index Record showing he died in Orange Co, California so I agree with the dates
you are showing.
Our page does not state we do not accept suggested changes, merely states on transfers we adhere to Find A Grave guidelines.
this person turned several memorials over to us, if you have informnation to add use the edit tab and we will be happy to add the info.

I just sent you an email in regards to my aunt dawn's memorial page you created. Have a great day.
|Roibeard53||Isaac Bonnel at First Presbyterian Churchyard|
I have to apologize for putting up a problem report on your request some time ago saying he was not buried there. He is. I came across his tombstone while photo-documenting the churchyard and remembered the request.
For some reason his inscription is not listed in the book of inscriptions the church uses as its only index of burials, but the inscription is in the book and Isaac is buried in the graveyard. Sorry this took so long. I hope it was worth the wait.

I went ahead and transferred your cousin's memorial to you. I would always rather have family in charge rather than a stranger...thank you.
|Debbie McGinley||Emma F Garrison (9000844)|
I have deleted memorial 43338561 per your request. The Garrison line is connected to my Eikenbary line through Clinton Garrison's marriage to Margaret Ellen Swan. In regards to Emma's maiden name; I have found information her maiden name was perhaps SANS, rather than LUARK. Father Vincent, mother Florida Sans. Wondering if you could clarify? Thanks, Debbie
|william courtwright||Mayflower genealogy|
I am doing the ancestry for a person in which Mary White Gaster is a main-line ancester. You implied in your ancestral synopsis for Mary White that her ancestry could be traced back to the Mayflower. I did a small ancestry on John White member of the Boston Tea Party to the early 1900s. Do you have the genealogy for Mary White back to the Mayflower? I would be interested.
Sorry for the late response. We don't know any more than what appears on the headstone- If we get a chance we check him out at the historical society and see what we can find there.

Cute story! By the way, what a good looking couple they made. Her dress is breathtaking. I can imagine what it must have looked like in color.
Warm regards, James Mason
|Duke Clark||Memorial 43163411, Susan (HOOVER) BRIDENSTINE|
Are the Rivergrove Cem and Ridgewood Cem, both in North Liberty, Iowa, really the same place?
Your Jacob BROADSTONE family listing in 2009 gave Rivergrove Cem as place of burial for Susan, findagrave gave Ridgewood Cem.
