*•.¸¸♥ ¸¸.•* 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."

Rachel Robison Morgan
Regarding your message that Rachel's grave Find A Grave 32003020 shows her born in NC. I think the family put that on incorrect but I have added a note to counter that.
Daughter of Allen Robison/Robinson born 1780 Ireland, died 8 Mar 1855 Pope County IL.
Although Rachel's marker shows her born in North Carolina in 1798, she was listed with her father in 1810 Livingston Co KY census as being born 1800-1809 that agrees with info of 1830 census. She was most likely born in Kentucky as she is listed as age 63, born 1806 in Kentucky, in 1870 Illinois Pope County with her daughter Martha Cox, my great, great grandmother who always lists in census that her mother was born in Illinois.
Thanks Bonnie

Hi Eileen,

Thank you for the correction from the 30th to the 130th Inf. I really can't get used to the keyboard on my laptop it is further away than the traditional keyboard for a desktop computer. Sorry about the typo. Thank you for catching it. Hope this finds you well.

Photo for Alice Scott
Thank you so much for the photo. I just moved to Tennessee so I'm much closer now than I was but I still don't know when I would be able to make the trip myself.

Best regards and thanks again!

Thank you for Willis Andrew Trout
Hi Eileen,

Thanks so much for taking the time to find and take such a great photo of my family member. It looks like the lawn is about to cover-up his grave marker so I particularly thank you for taking the extra effort to clear the dates for viewing. Kindest regards, Don Cox, West Linn, OR
