Bio Photo Yates Union Chapel Cemetery  

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.

Robert Yates death date
Note that the headstone in Union Chapel Cemetery for Robert Yates reads Sept 30, not Sept 3. Probably a typo not caught, but it ends up as an error in a search on

Farmer Cemetery, Crawford Co., IN
We were out driving yesterday down Governor's Trace in Crawford County and saw the sign for the Farmer Jane the only one buried here? If so, that's sad...

Crawford Co. Civil War Veterans
Do you know where I can get ahold of Doris Leisner's book "Crawford County Civil War Veterans"? I think it would help me a lot in my research. Thanks,
