Hi, I'm Haley Amber. I was born in Portland, ME, January 3, 1995. I was introduced to history and genealogy at a young age by my father, who is very dear to me and is always my traveling buddy on our cemetery searches across Maine. Marble stones can be interesting, but we both prefer the slate stones. |
Your tombstone stands among the rest, Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out...On old gray granite 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 when you lived and loved; I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot...And come and visit you."

My, have you been busy with findagrave!! Keep up the great work.
May I have your permission to use the photo you took of the Gerrish memorial in my ancestry.com family tree? The monument includes the 2nd husband of my 8th great grand aunt, Joanna Lowell Oliver. I will give you proper credit under the caption of the photo, e.g., "Photo by findagrave.com contributor HaleyCookFromMaine, with LOVE" and used here with her written permission.
