Bio and Links

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 age
spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.

I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

I found this and fell in love with it but, do not know who wrote it. Hope that you enjoy reading it.

RE: Death Certificate
Thank you so much for all your help. Stopping is a definite this week. That family is just full of unanswered questions.

RE: Poage, Bistineau Cemetery, Heflin, Louisiana
Was there a copy of Alfred C Poage's death certificate? curious about causes of death in our family. We've found a number of family members with same health issues. Please don't go to any trouble...just in case you noticed that.

RE: Wall & Hand, Bistineau Cemetery, Heflin, LA.
Hi Virginia, I had lost you for a bit and was driving me crazy as to where to find your message.
I was wondering if you would look up part of the connecting Poage family that is buried there also. Alfred Clark Poage/Poague/Pogue. Spelling is however anyone wants to spell I have found. He is a Jr. but don't think it is used after he left Alabama. His wife Ditha Joanne Wynn Poage. I am very curious if there was an obit for either of them. Strange that he was the last of several sons before his father, Alfred Clark Poage, named him a JUNIOR.

Coming off I-20 to Helfin....what is the easiest way to find the cemetery? Wed. I am going to try coming by on way to Alabama. Probably be around 10-11:00 before getting there.
Thank you so very much for your devoted and generous help.

Just transferred above memorial to you. I am not related. I took several photos in the Solomon Plot when I was in Lumpkin. Leila Pauline Everett Solomon Hobbs was my great aunt.

How do I find out what happened to my great grandmother who died under most unusual circumstances? Do I need to go to that county?
