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

I found Ann E. Buckmaster!
Hey there,

It looks like I have turned up one of your Buckmasters down here in Alexandria VA.

According to her stone she is the Daughter of Ann and James S. Buckmaster from Frederica Del.

Here she is:

I have added her as a member of the family. Please let me know if you disagree with her membership and I will remove her.

I am glad to transfer her if she is one of your wayward family.

Thank you for the transfer. He is not a real close relative, but I will take care and transfer him on if someone closer comes along. I love the poem you have on your bio. When my granddaughter was very young (prob abt 4) and used to go to cemeteries with me she once said that it would be nice if they could still talk to us. Out of the mouths of babes...

Elizabeth Redden/Eliza Wells
I sent you two edits for her. I thought it odd that Elizabeth & Eliza would have the same birth dates. Please look at memorial # 29936277 and see if you don't agree that she is the Eliza Wells with her husband Townson Wells - #29936267. All three are in Rosedale Cemetery, Coles County, Illinois. Thanks.

Polly H Reed in Ray Cemetery
Polly H Reed is buried in Reynolds Cemetery. She is my great grand aunt, not Ray.

Decatur Daily Democrat, Friday, May 26, 1950
Miss Polly Reed, age about 85, died last night at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Mittendorf in Chicago, where she made her home. Formerly of this city, Miss Reed moved to Chicago about five years ago. R. F. Glendening, assistant cashier at the First State Bank, who was notified of her death, said that she was one of the oldest members of the First Presbyterian church in this city. The body will be brought here to the Zwick funeral home. Funeral arrangements are not complete. Among relatives are Ralph and Brice Roop, nephews of the deceased.
Nola Rains note: Her body was interred May 29, 1950 in Root Twp., Adams Co, Indiana, Reynolds Cemetery.

FUNERAL NOTICE: Decatur Daily Democrat, Monday, May 29, 1950
Funeral services were held this afternoon at the Zwick funeral home for Miss Polly Reed, 86, former Decatur resident, who died Friday at Chicago. The Rev. A. C. E. Gillander officiated with burial at the Reynolds cemetery.

RE: Lieut John VanWey Pickering
My apologies. I hadn't read down far enough on John's memorial page. Unfortunately, his wife died in 1893 and that entire year is missing from the Boyne City newspapers. :(

RE: Lieut John VanWey Pickering
I agree. I haven't come across who his wife was or I would check for her obituary as well. If you come across that information, let me know and I'll see what I can do. Patrick
