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'd 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.
-written in 1906 by Walter Butler Palmer (1868-1932).

Roy David Olson
In researching Marrold H. Olson I discovered a brother Roy David Olson born in North Dakota on Feb 10, 1914 to Elias & Inga Olson. I found a copy of Roy's baptism (April 5, 1914) reflecting that date. This same Roy died April 18, 1954 in Bothell, Washington.

You posted pics of Roy David Olson, grave memorial #24489813, with the death date of April 18, 1954 but with a different birth date. Is there any way you can confirm if these are one and the same?

This is the grave of my maternal grandparents. My grandmother Della E. Murray, is buried on top of my grandfather. She died in 1969, but there was no adjoining plot. My daughter and I visited the grave in September, 2013, and I have a picture of the headstone. So, something happened to the stone right before your post. I attempted to upload the picture but was unsuccessful. The headstone was in excellent condition at the time we visited. Due to transportation difficulties, I have not been able to visit like I wanted. But with that problem solved, I am actively looking into the missing headstone.

Bernice Ernest
I have family letters regarding her death. This was my aunt that died as infant when she drank lye water while her mother was outside hanging laundry. Her mother Agusta Ernest watched as her toddler die as the lye burned out her throat. Her father, was my grandfather, Antone James Ernest, who is buried in South Sioux City with his second wife, Mildred Ella Ernest. HE also had a son, Bernard Lawrence killed in WW11 and is buried in North Africa in a cemetery in Tunisia. She had two half sisters, my aunt, Shirley Joyce (Ernest) Robinette, and my mother, Saundra Lee (Ernest) Crowe They are all buried in St. Micheal's Cemetary in South Sioux City, NE. How sad that there is no more information on this little girl. I can add additional information if you can link to at least her father, brother, and half sisters.
