My main purpose on find a grave was to make a lasting memorial of my loved ones for future generations to have and treasure. So many times important dates and information about life events and achievements get lost. We think after someone is gone...I wish I asked mom about her family. We all want to know where we came from. |
I am searching family names from Southern Illinois: (Jerseyville; Greene Co.; surrounding area) Brown; Wallace; Bruce; Redman; Poor; Murphy and Hand. These are people on my fathers side.
Any of my pictures or information may be shared.
MY DEAR FRIEND
Death, why do you come to my thoughts
after so many a year? I never had time
for you or even gave you a care.
Now with trembling limbs I nudge close to
those slumber doors. Can I take a peek, NO!
Is that death making its self-known?
All my life I have not known you.
Now I can feel you lurking aboutÖwhatís
this ache? Whatís this new pain?
I take a walk through fallen leaves and I
look about the sky and delight in the day.
Are there many more for me?
Why do I feel this way? Oh, I see
itís the quiet one drawing me in.
Do I make friends with you? Will you be
kind in the end?
Do you have some hideous disease for me,
Or will you let me slip into slumber with
such ease? Oh, Iíve seen the pain others have had. Please tell me, what death will be mine?
Over time you have become a constant and
familiar companion. I donít fear you as much
and know when you are near. When the end
is upon me and I know it will come, I
will welcome your presence like a long
Guide me to my loved ones that are waiting for me. I have my place at the wedding supper you see. So when you come, come quickly for me, my dear friend.

I notice the Julia Blank Sutter grave right behind the monument for Michael and children. Another piece of supporting evidence. I may get back there when the heat breaks!

Sorry I am so late in answering you. I contacted a person that I thought might be interested and he answered by giving me someone in Pontiac that would very much like to see the pictures concerning Cora Dart and the three kids. Can you send me your email through Lillian Brown. Thanks. Lois
Thank you for the edit suggestion _ I've added it to Rachel's memorial.

Hi! I couldn't help but notice the flowers you left on David/Martha's memorial and the fact that Illinois Family is your I. D. I , too, am a descendant of theirs, and I'm very curious as to what information you might have on them and their parentage? I've had a difficult time finding proof of same, and more information on David's possible Revolutionary War service. I'd love to exchange notes if you're willing. Thank you so much!

Sure I will have it removed and yes by all means use the photos. I feel closer to my grandma when I'm out there so happy to do it.
I'm not on much I will delete it as soon as I can.

I did not create her memorial, I discovered it when I photo'd hers and her son's, Clifford Johnson (Find A Grave # 162060823), which I did create and will transfer to you. For Alice, you will have to contact the creator, Reesecup Member # 48707088, and work it out with them.
