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.

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 ~

Very sad indeed.

RE: Albert Tremblay
I have all of them. I mined all of the county papers for them, so I have several versions. But thanks for the offer! I appreciate it. If I ever find out what happened to Albert, I will let you know. Are you related? My hubby is doubly related - L.J. Tremblay was the nephew of one of his 3x great-grandfather's and Corrine (Boisvin) Tremblay was the niece of a 2x great grandfather.

Albert Tremblay
The Catholic Church records for St. Joseph/Clyde list his death, but there is no date and it reads "died in a boxcar" in Wyoming. No word about when or where he is buried. I wish I knew.

RE: Murray Smith
Got it! Created a memorial for his wife Mary. Is Phyllis their daughter? She is buried next to them.

RE: Murray Smith
So sorry for that goof! I moved the photo to Murray C's memorial. The burial book we were looking at has some of the Smiths out of order and we only saw one Murray Smith the day we looked. I have found another listing in a different garden and will try to get the correct photo for you tomorrow.

How interesting! Adam & Julia's son Ross Troutman is my husband's father. Julia was his grandmother.

It's amazing where these old photo's will come from, isn't it?

Arthur Troutman
Good morning. I just noticed the picture you posted on Arthur's memorial. Are you a relative? I was just wondering about the photo.

I can't add his father per your request as you did not send me his memorial #.

Clara Sells
Hi, you can delete your edits and start over if you want. I haven't done anything yet because you got me to thinking. I think that Clara may have been married to both Henry and John. Still trying to track this down.
