Bio and Links
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.

I am so thankful for the photos you are posting of this cemetery. Most of them are related somehow to me and my dream was always to go and visit. It brings it alive now for me!

Thank you Betty for the Upson photos. I just noticed that my 2nd great grandparents (Julia and Charles)died in the same month. It was a few years before the flu outbreak of 1918. I will have to investicate that.

Thanks again,
Colleen

Dear Mrs. Davies,
Thank you so much for the picture of the tombstone for Mrs. Emma Searles. Over the years I was in contact with various members of her family, especially her granddaughter. It will mean a lot for her to see the picture. Thank you again.

Betty,
Sorry for my delay in responding. I would very much appreciate a photograph of the Bloom grave sites, to which you made reference in your October message.

Thank you very much.

Larmouth (Larmonth) in Wells Family Cemetery, Boylston.
I think the last name of these two (Phoebe and J. Gilson) should be Wells, not Larmouth. I sent Tombstone Hunter an email and will let you know what we come up with. Regards, Lori

Hi Betty, I think I left a SAC on J. Gilson Larmouth's memorial, meant for his sister Phoebe's memorial. Please check and let me know. Thanks, Lori
