Cemeteries are "a memorial and a record. (They are) not a mere field in which the dead are stowed away unknown; it is a touching and beautiful history, written in family burial plots, in mounded graves, in sculptured and inscribed monuments. (They tell) the story of the past, not of its institutions, or its wars, or its ideas, but of its individual lives,--of its men and women and children, and of its household. (A cemetery) is silent, but eloquent; it is common, but it is unique. We find no such history elsewhere; there are no records in all the wide world in which we can discover so much that is suggestive, so much that is pathetic and impressive." ~~ Joseph Anderson, American clergyman (1836-1916) |
For a very touching poem, see "Dear Ancestor" by Walter Butler Palmer.
Please use Find a Grave guidelines, if you wish me to transfer management, or edit/add information (please ask via Edit tab/SAC link). ~~
I believe obituaries provide much needed genealogical information that if not captured will be lost. With the increase in cremations, obituaries might be all that outlives our ancestors. Since obituaries are already published in newspapers and on the internet, anonymity has already been compromised.

I added two photos for John Spark's memorial page: one of the family monument and one of his grave marker. Call me weird, but I love being able to provide photos for people, as much as I enjoy having others provide photos for my memorials. :-)

In response to a photo request by Anne Mabbott, I added photos to the memorial for Agnes Spark. Her husband, John, is buried nearby, so I took a picture of his marker, as well.
I'd be happy to post it to his memorial, if you wish. Just let me know.

I am a Vermont Civil War buff, and am presently working on a project to identify the last resting places of many of our "Old Soldiers" that had ties to Vt. May I use the photo's that you have contributed to Find A Grave Memorials for several such Veterans? George Bickford, Stephen Drown, Daniel West, andJ.T.Pierce ( there may be others I haven't discovered yet. I would like to post them on the Vt.Civil War site.( www.vermontcivilwar.org)
You will receive credit for this.
Thank you for your consideration.

We followed the map but the cemetery that was there was the Clay County Cemetery with just a few graves( pioneer ?) the Dalesburg Lutheran Cemetery was located father north on University Rd. to Hill St, going west to 464the Ave, then north on 464th Ave. Cemetery is on left side of gravel road.
I am requesting that Mrs. Camp site be turned over to me. I am the son of Ray Piraux, her first husband who had a child together, Susan Camp Welch. Once my dad told me I had a half sister, I began looking for her and finally located her through the obituary of her mother. I was 30 days to late to find JoAnn to tell her the few stories my dad had told me on his death bed. Susan and I did connect through email but never spoke. Before we could meet, she died suddenly at home. I was devastated. It would mean so much to me that be the custodian of Mrs. Camp online memorial. I set one up for Susan and connected with your. Please consider my request. It would mean a lot to me in my family tree.
