|Bio and Links|
I love Genealogy, History and researching my family tree. Find A Grave accidentally helped me find Cousins I didn't know I have, and the best part of that is they are still alive so we can share information! Some of the surnames I am researching are: Buck, Plummer, Wells, Coleman, Szatkowski,Drake, Foley, Moulder, Fisher, Foster, Wiegert, Foley, Flake, Hutslar.|
I presently live in Johnson County, Indiana
THE CEMETERY PHOTOGRAPHER
Wandering among the stones I see
The stones so weathered and worn
‘Tis difficult to find the date
On which the babe was born
I stare at the stone and am struck with awe
At the life that I knew was gone
This was someone's child, a babe so sweet
With loved ones to carry on
So I take a photo for all to see
For the family that remains
An everlasting memory of
A child of God's domain
I brush the weeds back from the stone
And say a silent prayer
For the babes that had no chance to live
And for mothers everywhere
The dove calls out it's mourning song
Among the stones so still
Echoes of the woes, through time
The choirs of despair
The stone will someday perish
The flowers will be gone
But a photo now remains of this
Their memory lives on!
And so my friend, don't hesitate
To film the weathered stone
Those who live within your hearts
Are never truly gone.

|flashbeagle||RE: Morrell Jewell, W.|
I'm glad to pass it along.
I am not a Davenport. My 3 great aunt, Lettie D. Mathers married William Tilghman Asher Howard Boles, who was the younger brother of Nancy Jane Boles Davenport. Nancy was born in Indiana in 1825 according to census records. I'll send that information as an additional edit. Thanks.

Thanks for processing the Davenport links.

|StoneSeekers||RE: Hammans - Centennial|
Thanks, Stacey, I knew it was not intentional, and certainly not the only slip up in that cemetery....I had to send out more than 100 edits and I'm still waiting on 26 to be accepted:)....thanks for all your help!
|StoneSeekers||RE: Morgan County|
Thanks, Stacey--it's a bigger job than we imagined but we are having fun and hopefully updating and preserving the information that in a few years may be totally lost. I'm not sure we'll live long enough to finish it, but we're a good team and go out at least once a week (sometimes more if the weather cooperates)--the winter we had didn't help, but we're back in gear now:)
The Library has a new cemetery database so five of us are now trying to update the library lists one cemetery at a time. We have added almost 600 memorials to the Find A Grave and library listing for Centennial in the last couple of weeks. We have completed the cemeteries listed on my page so far--just 100+ to go!!:) Doing well and keeping busy for sure! Hope all is well with you.

Hi! You took a photo for findagrave.com memorial #8484396, but it is low resolution. Are you able to read the dates on the stone on the original photo?
