~~~Precious Gems~~~

If your heart feels heavy,
It may be weighted down,
With the many precious gems
You fail to pass around.

Diamonds are the loving words
You always leave unsaid.
Rubies are the seeds of joy
That you refuse to spread.

Emerald are the helping hands
Only offered grudgingly.
Sapphires are alms not given
To ease a fellowman's need.

Changing won't be easy
And it may even smart.
When you begin to mine those gems
Embedded in your heart.

It will take a lot of practice
Each and every day,
Learning that neglected art
Of giving yourself away.

First there'll be a secret fear
You may be refused,
Or sometimes deep resentments
That you are being used.

But as you sow your precious gems
Along life's many miles,
You'll notice how they sparkle
In people's happy smiles.

And your heart that was so heavy
Will grow to twice its size,
But be as light as a bird in flight
As it soars up to the skies.

"Transfers: I am not one of
those people who refuse to
transfer in or out of guidelines.
State up front how and why you
feel you should be the manager
of the memorial. I will use
my discretion, but as a general
Ask and ye shall receive, unless
you're 1 of those people who don't
transfer out of guidelines".
(I borrowed this from T.V.F.T.H)
If you are one of those people
the above poem is for you,
please read it and take it to
heart. I also don't like
veiled threats. So please don't
do that. It is so ugly.

For transfer request, please go
to edit. It will make it
easier for both of us.
If you have sent a correction
addition etc. please be patient,
and give me thirty days, to take
care of your request.
I am going to remove my e-mail
address, as I continue to receive
Transfers,corrections, additions
thru there, rather than thru edit
as I have requested above. Please
be sure to include the memorial
number as it is time consuming to
for members to have to look it up,
when you could just as easily send it.
Please do not post a death certificate
or an obituary in the photo section
on any of the memorials I manage.
The obituary should be typed and
submitted to be entered in the bio.
We want the memorials of those we
loved to be as nice as possible.

91429820 Dutcher
Hi Janet:
Trying to trace my ancestors. Finding though research, my 2nd great grandmother was Sarah Dutcher and twin sister Mary, married Lorenzo Richardson born 1823, in Washington County. She married Edwin Miller of Westborough,Mass. who, I just found had a 1st wife Salinda Braley also of Westborough. Married 1834 They settled after 1836ish and 1840 in White Creek.
1850 Census has Sarah born in Washington County, and I can not find anything on Dutchers and today say this site and wondered if you had any info about this person at all. I see birth and death unknown.
Appreciate your time thanks.

Beeker Bosen
I saw your post about Beeker Bosen. I believe that Beeker Bosen was Beeker Cosar and she is the mother of Sgt. Hench Bosen. She was married to Samuel Bosen and also a man named Cliford Pierce. She had at least 3 children with Samuel Bosen, John, Josephine Nora and Hench.

Beeker Cosar

Birth: 2-12-1897 in Oklahoma

Star Cemetery in Shreveport
Hey Janet... What can you tell me about Star Cemetery. It appears to be a cemetery for African Americans but my great-great aunt is buried there and I know her husband, Uncle Milburn, was white. He had no children by his first wife and one infant daughter by Mrs. R.A. Flowers so I'm trying to piece the story together. Sorry to bother you but thanks for any assistance you are able to provide.

88032161 Question
Is it possible that the birth/death years are swapped around for this person?

My great-great grandfather Franz Andreas Fleming was (Sept 21 1843 to Dec 28 1932) he was married to:

Margaretha (Wall) Fleming (Feb 8 1847 to 1938) and is I believe #88032990. (My great-great grandmother.)

Thank you!

Skiff in Campbell cemetery WRONG
Would you please remove the Skiff burial from the Campbell cemetery? There was no headstone there, as I was there this weekend and have looked over the cemetery records. Thanks.
