Bio Photo DEAR ANCESTOR
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.

Correction for Eugene Cunningham
Where is Farewall Retreat cemetery located? When I put it in, trying to change location- doesn't come up. Is it outside the US? What country?

Abe Cemetery-Brelsford's
Hello G.R. -
I want to inquire about the memorials you have for the Brelsford's at the Abe Cemetery in Mineral Co. Would you mind transferring them to me? I could create my own, but I didn't want to have doubles for the same people. My family #'s are, Donald..104428727, Edgar R..64834707, Edgar J..64834667 & Franklin..64834731. My # is 47110266.
Thank you for your consideration, and the enormous amount of work you have done adding all of the memorials!

Do you have any other information on Susan Elkins ? 106311933

I am trying to find out if this was my GG Grandmother. If so, She was married to a man named Bill Riley at one point and had a child named Opal Riley who married a Ferguson.
