Each cemetery is unique and has its own atmosphere. I enjoy the experience of slipping into that atmosphere and being taken back in time. The tombstones are silent witnesses to lives lived in earlier days. In my mind I form the sounds that once were their names and wonder about them. Were they builders, healers, dreamers? Did they do their best or just get by? Are they remembered? Do others have their faces, still know their names? |
Once, I took a cemetery and tried to answer those questions. I transcribed the gravestone inscriptions, looked up obituaries and death records. Little by little, the stories of the people who rested in that cemetery emerged. I came to know the trusted bus driver, the lumbermill hero, the town founder who planted trees, the pioneer merchant, and the Englishwoman who helped birth a new community out of the wilderness. This cemetery rests beneath a spectacular mountain and bears its name--Mount Si Memorial Cemetery.
Each of us has their own reasons for visiting cemeteries, transcribing gravestone inscriptions, and taking photographs. It's personal why we do what we do. But it's also giving back to our society and helping to remember the people who went before us. There were so many and each of them lived their lives one day at a time, just like us.
Feel free to contact me about any memorials or photos I've posted.

You may NOT appreciate it soon! LOL
I got home from work last night and had SEVERAL "corrections", links and misc info on them from a guy who I assume is a cousin of yours. I sent him a message saying I was going to transfer them to you, and asked him to hold off on the requests and resubmit them later. I also told him that I thought you were probably going to make all the links anyway.
Again, let me know if there's anything we can do to help!

I have also photographed the entire cemetery, so if there are tombstone photos you'd like me to add, just go ahead and request them. I'll check from time to time or you can send me a message and let me know.

|Graves||RE: Missoula Cemetery|
Thank you for the Missoula corrections. The date on Willis is confirmed with cemetery records but I will make a note of the difference you found on the stone - cemetery records could have been mis-typed. All other suggested changes have been made. The duplicate you suggested is actually a duplicate and I've contacted the owner of the other record.
Thanks again for your help.
