"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 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.

Charles Knight
Thanks for all of your hard work contributing to

I am writing to request transfer to me of the page for Charles Knight (1797-1870); Findagrave #99696598.

Charles Knight was my g-g-g-grandfather. He was a Massachusetts-educated "druggest" who moved to Ohio County, KY. He had two daughters. In the 1840s, the family moved to Potosi, WI. They moved back to KY at the outbreak of the Civil War. He died in Ohio County, KY (thus the grave you have recorded.) I have just now added a pic of him to your page.

Thanks in advance for your consideration to transfer. My screen name is Johnny Drury; my Findagrave Member number is 47696793.

Samuel Bailey Correction
Thanks for all the work you're doing. I just wanted to bring to your attention a correction for Samuel Bailey buried in Piney Grove Cemetery, Midtown, Roane County, Tennessee. His mother was Sarah F Isham Bailey (2 Mar 1845 - 7 Jan 1914). Samuel's middle initial is "L".

Me again... could you add dates to Kirk Fairall's listing?

Mem: 94886981 Mae Eveline Fairall

THANKS SO MUCH for revising the listing for Mae Eveline Fairall... SO QUICKLY !!
Is it possible to add dates?

Birth: Jan 1850
Death: Mar 1924

Also... could you revise the word 'spinster' to 'devoted' music teacher (piano)

I did not know that you would add my comments to her listing... probably my use of the word 'spinster' was not kind.

Mae Heard (Oakland Cemetery)
Mem: 94886981 Mae Heard (Oakland Cemetery..Iowa)

FANTASTIC to find Mae's headstone. (I discovered the listing while researching her sister, Anna Rachel Fairall Heard). Is it possible to revise the listing for Mae to 'Mae Eveline Fairall'? Mae was a spinster music teacher and was the last living member of her 'Fairall' family in Iowa City IA. Her father was Truman Fairall (1799-1869); her mother was Mary Pusey Husband Fairall (1810-1892); her siblings were: Anna Rachel Fairall Heard (1828-1910; Martha 'Mattie I. Fairall Fickey (1832-1911); Samuel Husband Fairall (1835-1909); Herman Harrison Fairall (1840-1912); Herbert Snowden Fairall (1854-1907).
FIND-A-GRAVE has been so very helpful in my research. Your work is very much appreciated. In many cases, the only photos that I have of past relatives are from FIND-A-GRAVE.

Correction Of Names
Hi Bobby, Thank you for all your hard work in preserving the family history. I just saw #81935667, James Bynum page, his correct name is"James Monroe Bynum" not Mae, and his wife is"Etta Dona Jett Bynum" only one n in Dona. You have really done an outstanding job in all you have gathered, thank you, Diane Bynum
