One Final Gift

Scatter me not to restless winds
Nor toss my ashes to the sea.
Remember now those years gone by....
When loving gifts I gave to thee.
Remember now the happy times....
The family ties we shared
Don't leave my resting place unmarked
As though you never cared.
Deny me not one final gift
For all who come to see....
A single lasting proof that says
I loved....and you loved me.
by D. J. Kramer

Find A Grave volunteers have connected me
to family, and I count it a privilege
to help others connect with family or friends.

It saddens me when there is no headstone
or it's broken and illegible. I guess that's why I like the poem....everyone needs to be remembered.

Hi again,

Oops, I forgot to thank you for taking the photos. Thanks! I don't get back to the area very often anymore.

Hi Linda,

Sorry for the confusion, I don't know why I put "1930" for obituary, my records showed "1956". Thanks for pointing that out to me. I have corrected my memorial.

Best Regards,

RE: William
Hello Linda,
William Bayer is by great grandmother's older brother....I never actually met him as he died before I was born.

I am not aware of any military service, and haven't found any documents to that affect - but it is certainly possible, as it was an easy way to citizenship for recent immigrants.

I was also not aware of a bronze marker for him, I have seen the pictures of the granite marker on his and his wife's grave. Could you send me the image, or attach it to the memorial?

Names not appearing on memorial
I am the birth Son of Albert George Andress.
In reviewing his memorial I noticed names missing from it. His next older brother Donald and his father Frank.
I have their names and some dates and would like to include them on my Fathers' memorial site.
I can be reached at

"The Burrell-King House"

Jabez Lyman Burrell (1806-1900), originally from Massachusetts, built this house in 1852. Burrell made his living as a cattleman and farmer, but devoted much of his time serving the cause of abolitionism, helping slaves, who had escaped the South, get to Sheffield and from there to Lorain and across Lake Erie to Canada. He was also devoted to equal education for all, providing funding to a freedmen's school in Selma, Alabama, and serving as a trustee of the Oberlin Collegiate Institute, well known for educating African Americans and women. From 1884 to 1934, this was the home of Henry Churchill King (1858-1934), who was the president of Oberlin College from 1902-1927. The Kings added the porches and rear wing and made their home a social center for the college and community. The house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a City of Oberlin Historic Landmark.
