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 visit you."
(This poem was written in 1906 by Walter Butler Palmer)
I work hard to get my information as accurate as possible and am thankful when other contributors do the same. I generally don't enter information such as inscriptions that are easily readable from the picture (why by redundant?), but I'm happy to make any corrections needed. Just please use the "Edit" tab on the memorial. It's easier to manage the emails that way. Thanks!
Photo's: Please feel free to make copies of the photo's that I have taken and posted here. I do ask that if you post them to other websites please give me credit for taking them as a courtesy.

Thank you so much for the photograph and alerting me that the stone was laying on the grass. I called the cemetery and they will fix it for free. I will request another photo when the work is done.
Thank you again
|Regina Montford||Thank You JP|
I appreciate everything you do for all the people that need your help. Thank you so much for the photos of my grandparent's headstone.
I think you found the wrong gravesite. Here is a photo that I found on billiongraves:
Could you please retake a photo and post the corrections for Find A Grave Memorial# 110324980 and the other five?

JP, Thank you very much for taking the time in trying to find my GG Uncles tombstone. Unfortunately, there was no stone. There are 3 other buried in this plot and I believe they are related. I will contact the cemetery and see if they can help. Once again, many thanks for your efforts! Paul O.

Wow, thank you so much for taking this photo of my Great Grandparents final resting place. I didn't know their son Victor was buried with them. I am thrilled with your generous work. Thanks again.

Thank you for taking the picture. Was the flag there or did you put it there to mark the spot? We don't believe he was a veteran. Is there an office in the cemetery that could confirm that is his grave site? We had called there & they gave us this location, but perhaps we wrote it down incorrectly.
It's just disturbing he doesn't have a marker. Also, we had heard he may have been shipped back to Ireland & buried there.

Thank you so much for your help. Really appreciate your time and effort and placement of the Flag to mark my nephews ancestor .
