Bio Photo DEAR ANCESTOR

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.

Surnames that we are working on are:

WILSON, O'BANION, PATE, PEACE,
BAILEY, WISE, YOUNG & SPURLOCK.

Tornado victims
Hi, thanks for the information and insight...I had never heard of the Minden tornado (I'm from Ouachita Parish, now living in Bossier City) until a few years ago when I wandered onto the "Memories of Minden" website. It would have to be traumatic and impressionable for a five year old, like your sister to witness that. I remember a tornado going through Jackson parish while visiting my grandparents when I was around that age. It's something you don't forget. The one in Minden was so devastating, for the "city" folks and the ones living in rural areas. I can't imagine not only losing one's home, but their loved ones as well. Thanks for the gravestone photos, too!

Hello,

I made a mistake on Sam Garza’s (48365919) site. Sam Garza’s first wife is Audrey Ivy (136359195) and his second wife is Elsie Rae Wise Garza (48273004).

Please correct. Thank you.

RE: Bobby Young, Fuller Cemetery
Virginia, many thanks for the update. Tell Torchie we're thinking of her and Danny. I lived in Ft Worth when I first met Torchie and Danny at their home to review my genealogy files. Tell her I've continued moving: to Fairfax VA 2011-2014 and now in Aurora CO 2014-present. I'm getting old so this may be the last move!

RE: Jennifer Lee McDonald
I have been working on a listing of Claiborne Parish Cemeteries and while visiting around Lisbon, I found Rocky Springs didn't have many pictures of markers. So I spent about a week taking pictures and now in the process of posting them. Glad to be of help.
