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.
If anyone has an addition or correction to anything I have posted please contact me and I will quickly correct it. I am more than happy to turn over ownership to anyone who requests it. AND PLEASE IF YOU SEE THAT I HAVE ENTERED A NAME TWICE, PLEASE TELL ME ABOUT IT. It is easy to make a duplicate without realizing it.
Also -- another FindAGrave contributor wrote this... I think it says it all:
Please note: This is NOT a numbers game, Nor a "who has who" game here. Some of us are serious about getting names & photos of headstones that are not going to be around and making memorial pages. That is what this is about, making/recording that person lived and died. Like many, I spend long, long hours either in a cemetery, or adding memorial pages to Findagrave.com. I would love to see some of the headstones of family members that were in the 1700 & 1800 of my family, but that isn't going to happen as many are gone.
It doesn't matter who has the memorial page, the important thing is that someone cared enough to make a memorial page to honor that person and that is what findagrave.com is all about. Honoring the deceased, NOT who has what memorial or how many that they have. Thanks!

|Pat Harney||RE: News articles/obits|
Happy to be able to do it. I'm working on a project for vital info from the Observer and realized these obits should be at find-a-grave. I've caught up with them on what I have done thus far, but you might not get any for awhile now. But I'll plan to continue once I get some more of the vital info typed up.
I know you've made a lot of contributions to find a grave and I appreciate that as well.

Thank you again. Her gravesite is only ancestor's gravesite in Michigan that I haven't seen. I live on the west side of Michigan. One of these days I plan to make the trip. Having the pictures will certainly help with location. Jane from MI
|Jane from MI||Hannah Dow Freeman|
Thank you for taking and posting the photos of the tombstone of Hannah Dow Freeman 52632606. May I use them on my Ancestry Tree and to send in with a DAR application for Hannah's husband Truman's father who served in the Revolutionary War. Do you have a map of the cemetery so I go there sometime I can find her tombstone? Jane from MI email@example.com
