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.

|Jack Wilson||William Sweeney|
Wow! How many times I must have driven past Bill and there he is. Thanks for the photo. I see you are enjoying some snow. I've been waiting for 7 years. I don't think we will get any here!:)

thank you jp ryder for posting the photo of O'Neill grave.
|Rosann Hinshaw||RE: Keller Graves|
About the problem reported with photos of the graves of Michael and Katherine Keller-the information I had looked like Ranger but I think it must be Range R. I hope that helps in locating their graves. Thanks for your help.
|Tony Chiofolo||RE: Chiofalo memorials|
You are so kind. I too though of the wreath and wondered who left that. I had just contacted my cousin who is staying in L.I. and perhaps she can call the office and try to get the other locations spots. Was there any particular person she should ask for? Once I get that it will make it easier for you. Thanks again for caring.
|Theodore Winter||Nicholas Lerscher|
Thank you for taking a picture of the flag represents where Nicholas Lerscher is buried. I was surprised because his grandson were rich and affordable. I said what happened to him (John Lerscher, Jr). What the more! The Serf family did not have their headstones. Surprised me again. Anyway. I think about ordering flat marker and installing it there with our cousins' help on my behalf of our beloved great great grandfather. God bless him and you. Thanks for your effort. The picture with flag and a countless headstones aspire me to remember Nicholas Lerscher. You did a great job. Thanks again Ted Winter
|Doug C||Jessemeana Ricigliano|
Thank you for the photo but something doesn't make sense that there is no headstone or marker there. This is my wife's great-grandmother and the family was not indigent by any means. Please remove the photo you took until we investigate further. Many thanks for your trouble.

Thanks for the photos- some of the dates are different than what I had so it may help in my research. I appreciate your efforts on my behalf. If I can return the favor please let me know.
|Doug C||Castellano Cioffi Grave|
Thank you so much for the photo of Lucrezia Cioffi Castellano's headstone. Her daughter and grandchildren all live out west in Oregon and Washington (state)so I will forward this to them. Many many thanks.

|Tony Chiofolo||Thank you.|
I just added a memorial for Philip Chiofalo, which you have the photo for. Gaspare Chiofalo tombstone photo did not come through.
As a token of my appreciation, I have been researching one of your surnames "Marrs" and I am forwarding them to you. They may or may not be relatives of yours. If you don't want them, you can transfer them back to me. If there is another surname you want me to do research on, I will. It is only a small way to thank you for the Chiofalo memorials you are attempting to get for our family.
