Bio and Links
I love spending time with my family and doing genealogy. (Tetreault, Deneault, Racette, Schmidt, Richard, Giroux, Dyson, Miller, Blochlinger) just to name a few.

A Cemetery is a history of people, a perpetual record of yesterday and a sanctuary of peace today.
A Cemetery exists because every life is worth loving and remembering always.

THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
By Thelma Greene Reagan

Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.

Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.

Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.

Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.

Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.

Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.

Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

The Ancestor
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marble 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 how you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

~ Walter Butler Palmer, 1906 ~

Ditto. Morris's wife, Margaret, is listed twice as his wife.

Margaret E. Boucher
Do you know that Margaret's husband, Morris, is listed twice on your site? Perhaps you could redo the relationships to eliminate one entry.

Joseph Isaac Boucher
P.S. I left the correct father's memorial site number as an edit on June 12, 2015.

Joseph Isaac Boucher
Please go to your Joseph Isaac Boucher site, #95851822. You have the wrong father for this man. Joseph's father is not Thomas Wrong [wrong surname], and he has no sisters Katherine or Josephine Wrong. The father of Joseph Isaac Boucher is Morris Boucher, #95851752. Joseph's parents were married only once ... to each other. There were no half-siblings.

Sister Mary Cleta Pfeifer, 73947607
I tried to send you a message to add on Sister Mary Cleta's page, but kept getting an error message, so here it is:

Her obit in the Topeka Capital-Journal, Tuesday, March 29, 1988, page 6C also contains the following information:
She was born Dec. 19, 1906, at Ellis, daughter of Adam and Ann Leiker Pfeifer and baptized Philomena Pfeifer.

(Note: There is a difference between the birth date in the obit and that on her Find A Grave page.)

Rainbow,
Thank you for your condolences. I know my beloved husband Manuel is no longer sick and is enjoying eternal life in Heaven. Before he left, he promised to save me a place near him in Heaven so I know we'll be seeing each other again one beautiful day and we'll be together forever with all who have gone on before us and we'll be waiting for those who are still here on earth.

Take care,

Mary

re: (Baby) Pommier
Hi!

You suggested an update to this memorial, saying "Lucille (Baby) died in childbirth with her mother." Can you identify the parents so that I can link them?

If you're kin, and would like a transfer, please let me know. I'll be happy to accommodate!

Very best regards,

William
