I hope what I've contributed to Find A Grave helps others as I was helped and is perceived as respectful and caring, as these were my intentions. I discovered this site because of my love for genealogy, and after finding many ancestors here, I joined to honor family not previously listed. Once I started, I realized how much interest I had in cemeteries. I now see what peaceful, sacred places they are, filled with touching tributes and the history of our past generations.|
In memorializing my direct relatives, I also added indirect relatives and cemetery neighbors to alleviate gaps. If you have additional or corrective information, just let me know using the convenient 'Edit' feature. Likewise, I am happy to transfer anyone to whom I'm not related (just ask). My hope in transferring is that you will add more to the memorial than I was able (like a full biography). I'd love to see every memorial maintained by a close relative or loved one that can make the memorial into a tribute and this site into a virtual place that's almost as special as the physical final resting places. Our ancestors deserve that!
The Arkansas PBS network (AETN) produced an Emmy-winning documentary in 2010, Silent Storytellers, which beautifully emphasizes the need to preserve our cemeteries as priceless connections to our history. I highly recommend it for my fellow members; you don't have to be a resident of Arkansas to appreciate it. Director/co-producer Hop Litzwire uploaded the documentary onto YouTube, which you can access by clicking here.

p.s. As of 2015, I have chosen to go a little more "private" with my Member Profile (including clearing out my old messages). Nothing has changed with me; I'm just looking to preserve a degree of anonymity. Please feel free to contact me as always.

Dear TPE: I'm Warren's wife and these graves belong to my grandmother, grandfather and Uncle. I was able to be around my grandmother briefly when I was 3 yrs. old and have movies of her in the back yard of her home. We left in 1949 and she committed suicide and was buried where you found her grave. My mother told me that she rode a bus from Little Rock to Dallas when she was 16 years old to be with her father in the hospital before he died. The family must have decided to bring him back to Cabot to be with Emma. I believe theirs was a great love story. Thank you so much for finding their graves. We hope to come to Arkansas and do more research. You have given my sister and I something very special with your photo. Sincerely, Elizabeth
|Sandra Marlow||RE: Will Cossey transfer|
Thank you for the transfer! Especially considering he is part of your family too. I totally understand your desire to keep Polly's memorial. I will definitely take good care of William.

Thanks for clearing up the BURGERS' relationship!
I love doing genealogy and am the historian/genealogist for my LAMM family, Berks County, PA. [lots of BERGERS live there]
That makes sense, as the MOTHER footstone is on the opposite side from Lucious' inscription. I looked again at the photo, and it faintly appears what seems to be BURGER inscribed on that base side also, plus more above that. Sometimes using a thin sheet of paper over the stone, and light rubbing with pencil can reveal more.

You are very welcome.
I returned to the cemetery 2X this week and was disappointed not to find either William Newton Burger or Malissie Catherine Shearer Burger. I don't recall seeing a SHEARER family in the cemetery, either. Often I find, as a clue, women are interred near the parents.
Do you know if Lucious is related? Their generations are appropriate.

Thank you! Just leave picture up, his kids may one day have them date it but for now just leave picture up. He did pass away though.
