Two Poems,
In each family there is one who seems to be called to find the Ancestors.To put flesh on their bones and make them Live again,to tell the Family Story and to feel that somehow they know and approve.Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but,instead,breathing life into all who have gone on before. We are the Storytellers of the Tribe. All tribes have one.We have been called,as it were by our genes.Those who have gone before cry out to us "Tell our Story" ! So,we do.In finding them,we somehow find ourselves.
^^^^first part of said poem,
- Author UNKNOWN
Dear Ancestor
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiselled out
on polished, marble 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.

One of my findagrave friends,whom I chanted with early on here on Findagrave is Love Mo~Proverbs 3:5&6
Please feel free to give her some pretty flowers!

Hello Family
Hi Peanut,

Daniel Billinghurst is my great great grandfather. I saw that he is your great great great grandfather. My great grandfather left Albion and moved to Cincinnati, Ohio, where our family has stayed for generations. I just wanted to say hi. :)

So I joined Find A Grave so I could send you a message.

RE: Wolcott
Hi Peanut,

The picture of the headstone belongs to
Flora (Comstock) Wolcott.

She was born Flora Comstock (not Florilla) on Oct. 31, 1843
and died on Mar. 15, 1923.

She was the daughter of Jude and Mary Rachel (Wilson) Comstock and she married Ludwig J Wolcott.

I did not find any record of a marriage between Flora (Comstock) Wolcoott and a Jenkins anywhere at all.

There is another memorial on Find A Grave for her, it's memorial number 8089117 and, although that one also says Flora was married to a Jenkins, I still don't believe it's accurate.

You should contact the other memorial holder and work out an equitable solution to merge the two memorials or some other plan but there should only be one accurate memorial for everyone.

And, there is the other Flora Comstock.

She was born Florilla Jenkins and she married Julius Comstock. Her memorial is 59016291

She was born and died at least twenty years prior to this Flora and the two women have nothing to do with each other.

Hope that helps clear the air :)

Hi Peanut, I hope this isn't too confusing but I wanted to share some info with you about Florilla.
It appears your memorial is a combination of two different people.

Florilla Jenkins, she was born Jan. 21, 1826 in New York and moved to Nebraska with her daughter when she latter died on Oct. 23, 1902.
Her memorial number is 59016291 and she is not the daughter of Jude and Mary Rachel Wilson Comstock. She was born Jenkins and as much as I've searched, I cannot locate her parents info.

She was married to Julius Comstock, his memorial number is 27896988 and he died in Michigan.

Flora Comstock Wolcott was the daughter of Jude and Mary Rachel Wilson Comstock. She was married to Ludwig J Wolcott and her memorial number is 8089117

The pictures you have linked to this memorial are of Flora Comstock Wolcott and her late husbands graves.

I don't know who the woman photographed on this memorial is but the same photo appears on both memorial pages. It was posted by Gone But Not Forgotten.

I've sent edits to the other two memorial groupings so they can be linked to the correct parents and spouses so hopefully they wont be confused again in the future. I'll dabble a bit more if I have time, they are not related to me I just happened across this while researching yet another Flora Comstock.

Feel free to message me if you have any questions...the best thing I can suggest is to contact the other posters, figure out which one is your ancestor and merge this one with one of the other two or delete it.

Sincerely, Wickham

Do you if your friend Keith is still with us or if he has passed away? His email doesn't work. I have a friend trying to get in touch with him because their DNA results show they are related.

Thanks for your help.

Ransom Cornelius Rathbun is the father of your Irving Chauncey Rathbun who died March 1969 probably in the Naples, Florida area. I would rather communicate through e-mail. ( I have your lineage back to England.

RE: Rathbun
I do research on all lines of the descendants of John Rathbun and his wife, Margaret Acres, of Block Island, Rhode Island.

Enjoy your work.
