Bio Photo DEAR ANCESTOR,

YOUR GRAVESTONE
STANDS AMONG THE REST,
FORGOTTEN AND FORLORN.
YOUR NAME AND DATE ARE CHISELED OUT,
ON SLATE OR OLD LIMESTONE,
IT REACHES OUT TO ALL WHO CARE,
IT'S NOT 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,
OF FLESH AND BLOOD AND BONE
OUR HEART CONTRACTS AND BEATS A PULSE,
ENTIRELY NOT OUR OWN.
DEAR ANCESTOR, THE PLACE YOU FILLED,
SO MANY YEARS AGO,
SPREAD OUT AMONG THE ONES YOU LEFT,
WHO WOULD HAVE LOVED YOU SO.
I KNOW THAT YOU LIVED AND LOVED,
BUT, I WONDER IF YOU KNEW,
SOMEDAY I WOULD FIND THIS SPOT,
AND COME TO VISIT YOU.

He is actually buried in Hope Lutheran Cemetery in Whitley Co. IN. I have a grave marker picture to post but want to do it in the correct cemetery...I'm glad I checked around as I almost created a new memorial. Thanks so much!

RE: Dampier picture
Thanks, Roberta. I think this one will be fine, and I don't think they have one like it from any other family members.

BOLLES CEMETERY
Hello Roberta. There is a book being compiled for the Bolles Cemetery and the publishers would like to include as many photos as possible. Would you consider granting permission to use the photo you have posted for Ernie and Dora Burns Dampier? You will be given credit for the photo.

RE: hi
Roberta,
You are so welcome. This is why I do what I do with Find a Grave. I know how important it was when I would find an obit about family or a picture and Find a Grave has been a saving grace in a lot of family searches for me and I am just glad I can give back a little.

RE: good morning
I use Microsoft Office Picture Manager to edit my photos. Most of the time, the default size is about 250 x 325. Sometimes I use the predefined setting (e-mail Large 314 x 235). If the original is small then I usually don't try to make it a lot larger because the resolution usually cannot tolerate it and still be a good quality photo. For those that I scan my self, I have a Canon scanner that I get pretty good output from.

Thanks for noticing and asking.

RE: hi again
I believe I have one of the headstones that my father rescued many years ago. My father has passed but my Mom states that she remembers that once while visiting (we living in AZ), my father saw that most was vandalized and took this headstone to save it. Wayne Leaman would have been his grandfather. I would like to return it somehow.

RE: i am going to go check the cemetery out i will get pictures
Thanks! I can give you my email address. sdemint@q.com, The Leaman family is my father's mother's family. They lived in Churubusco. My grandmother's name is Trilby Pauline Leaman (maiden).
I was wondering if they have all of the headstones for those buried there or if some are missing?
