|I've started this venture a short time ago to locate my deceased family that immigrated from Poland and the Ukraine. I love going to old cemeteries as there is a history lesson to be learned. Do you ever wonder how they lived, what was there cause of death and why did family members leave the area.|
This short poem say's it all:
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 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 as you lived and loved
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot
and come and visit you.
Each Life Is a Miracle
We are each of us a miracle
unique in our own ways,
In the heart and soul and inner gifts
we share throughout our days.
And your loved one was a miracle
whom no one can replace
and who gave you special memories
that time cannot erase.
So with these words of caring
comes a prayer for comfort, too.
In unique and loving memories
that mean the most to you.

Thank you for your reply. I did see that note underneath the picture of the graves. I apologize for not checking the originator of Pharley's or the other family memorials associated with Maria Hopkins Westcott Dodge. It appears that Andrew L. is also the originator of the other Mariah Dodge memorial page. I will contact him.
However because you are the current owner of this memorial, I think that it would be up to you to delete it, yes?

Thank you so much for the photo. It was such a rainy day last weekend.

Thank you so much for the lovely photos! I've added a memorial for Clara Kyes Bentley. Also, I've asked the contributor to transfer the rest of the Bentley memorials to me so I can correct all the typos and mistakes and add a lot of family history as well.
Are the children of William J. & Roxy clustered around their parents' stone? I have another William J. Bentley & wife Levina "Roxa" Bentley in Sunnyside Cemetery in Great Bend, Jefferson Co., NY whose dates are very similar and I'm wondering if they're the same folks posted in the wrong cemetery or not.
Thanks again for all of your help!
That wd be terrific. I am looking to tie Peter Martin to a Philinda Abbott. Just a guess, but could be his wife. Looking for a Joel Abbott born abt 1800. Daughter Philinda?

Hi Betty Jane,
Thanks so very much for the headstone photo for Ruth Brown in the South Richland Cem. Also for Elisha Brown's stone that you posted back in 2012. I'm most grateful for your care and kindness. Love the poems you have in your profile.
