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

Rosa Farris
You may have something here. Rosa and Clara are buried beside each other. I went ahead and linked Rosa to Clara. When I go back to the cemetery I will do some checking up on the two. Won't be able to find where she was born, but can see if they are linked in the cemetery records. Will get back to you next week.

Rosa Farris
I'm not sure how I got Canada as her birthplace as I can't find it now. I usually use I did find her in the California Death Index and I have added her death date and place. Looking back through ancestry this morning I did find a Rosa E Farris born about 1871 in Kentucky in the 1920 census, with a husband of C. Hugh Farris. She lived in Tennessee. Is that your Rosa?

RE: King D Gorham 31368843
Thanks so much for your reply. You can go to the 'edits' tab on your home page, where you accept/ decline edits sent to you from other members. There you can click on 'Display' drop down menu and click on 'Edits sent to me that I approved'. Then you can scroll down through all your edits to find the edit you approved.

Hope that helps. You don't need to go to that much trouble for me but just in case you need to research something again.

I still can't find a document that confirms Joshua as his father, but I do know that his middle name is Darius. There's a good chance that he belongs in Joshua's family, just nothing (that I can find) to document it. I was hoping you had a death cert or court records. Thanks anyway. If I ever find out anything different I will sent you a note. For right now, I will send his info (what I do know about him from records) via 'edit' tab.

Have a blessed Christmas season,

RE: Kivett relation
My great grandmother was Mollie Elizabeth Kivett, b. 1861, Boonesboro, MO, d.1957 in Independence, MO. She was the d/o John S. Kivett, b. 1883 Randolph County, NC, d.1915 in Boonesboro, MO and Elizabeth McCart. John S. Kivett was the s/o Henry M. (2nd) Kivett, 1788-1880 and Martha/Patty Welborn. Henry M. (2nd) Kivett was the s/o Henry M. (1st) Kivett 1753-1806 and Sarah Aldridge. Henry M. (1st) Kivett was the s/o Peter Kivett, 1726-1794 and Anna Barbary. Peter is one of my Rev War patriots, recognized by the DAR.

A super nice Kivett family historian is Bill Kivett who lives in South Carolina.

An old commercial building owned by a Kivett still stands in Dalton, NE, and there are Kivett gravesites in the Dalton Cemetery. You probably already know that, since I see your name everywhere.

Thank you so much for the additions to Ray Buchanan's memorial site. It adds a lot to a family member that has been all but forgotten. I am doing my best to ensure some of those will be remembered to future generations.
