<-- My sons, Sean and Eric, and myself, several years ago.|
The older you get, the more deaths it seems, or maybe I was just too young to know the difference. I wanted something to memorialize members of my family and friends.
The majority of the memorials I made are family and some are very close family friends.
For all those that took my family pictures and used them on Ancestry, you weren't supposed to copy them unless you ask me first, and it would have been nice for anyone of you to say "Hey, I used your picture on my family tree!" I would have replied with something like "Lets see how we are related!"
Discovering who your ancestors are is one thing, but reading about them even if its just an obituary tells you something about them as a person, not just another leaf in the tree. Seeing their final resting place is a type of closure for me.
I'm looking for any information on Scovill, Hill, Gear, Parlett, Lawton, Shields, Weilbacher, Frierdich, Murrah.
Please don't add any music to my interments. If you have a picture for one of my memorials you'd like to add, go ahead, but please let me know so I can see it! Thanks!
If I've left flowers on a memorial, that doesnt mean that I know them. It could be that I was flowering random names, or I got there by following links from other memorials. I've flowered over 20,000 memorials, and I probably only knew a very small percentage of those people.
This was posted in the forums, and I think it pretty much sums up how most of us feel about graving and looking for our ancestors.
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
Spread 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.

Sherry: Thank you very much for the transfers.
|Elkco||RE: Alex Greenup|
I am NOT related to Alexander Greenup, but I have been looking for his burial spot. I found reference to him through the obituary of his wife and through Ancestry.com records, but I can't find a place of burial which I assume to be in Kansas. I can't find any other family members either. Will keep you posted...............

Thank you very much...I am grateful that you are willing to share family history photos and information. It would be interesting to see how we might be blood related, but just don't see it at the moment. Take care and ever enjoy the journey of your family history research efforts! Regards, Sandra Christine :)

Sherry, I would like to submit photo of the following to ancestry.com and any other photos of interest, Lee's Summit Cemetery and Lee's Summit Historical Cemetery are the same cemetery. One corner just says Lee's Summit, and one corner says Historical. I will always acknowledge you as the contributor. Thanks for all the work you do and for your efforts in providing family history and genealogy. Photo at: Malissa Atchison Anderson (2nd great-grandmother), Find A Grave Memorial #71214344. If we're related I wouldn't know through which line at this time, but assume we are distant cousins. Thank you again...
Regards, Sandra Christine Phipps

Thank you so much for finding my long lost great-grandfather without you there would be no way that I could ever have found him. No one in my family knew what happenned to him. Language barriers prevented alot of communication in my family and everyone who knew him is long gone. No one who is alive had any idea where he was. Too much time had gone by before I started looking into family history. I wish I could find out more. I'm on ancestry.com. That is how I found your posting. Do you have any suggestions? Do you think the cemetery would have any more information? Anyways thank you so much you don't know what that means to me. It is so cool.
answer as of this morning per cemetery records husband is not there.

Hi Judy! I'm not related to Anna but I am doing research on all the Lawtons in Missouri to try and find some missing links. Can you please add some information to this memorial for me?
Her maiden name is Siddens.
Born in Burdette, Pawnee Co., Kansas and died in Springfield, Greene Co., Missouri.
Daughter of Milton M. Siddens and Frances M. Hamlin.
Wife of William Lawton.
(Judy, do you know if William is buried at this cemetery too?)
