We Are The Chosen |
We are the chosen. In each family there is one who seems called to find
the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to
tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve.
Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, breathing
life into all who have gone before. We are the storytellers of the tribe.
All tribes have one. We have been called, as it were, by our genes. Those
who have gone before cry out to us, "Tell our story!" So, we do. In
finding them, we somehow find ourselves. How many graves have I stood before
now and cried? I have lost count. How many times have I told the
ancestors, "You have a wonderful family; you would be proud of us." How many times
have I walked up to a grave and felt somehow there was love there for me?
I cannot say. It goes beyond just documenting facts. It goes to who am I
and why do I do the things I do. It goes to seeing a cemetery about to be
lost forever to weeds and indifference and saying, "I can't let this
happen." The bones here are bones of my bone and flesh of my flesh. It goes to
doing something about it. It goes to pride in what our ancestors were able
to accomplish, how they contributed to what we are today. It goes to
respecting their hardships and losses, their never giving in or giving up,
their resoluteness to go on and build a life for their family. It goes to deep
pride that the fathers fought and some died to make and keep us a Nation.
It goes to a deep and immense understanding that they were doing it for us.
It is of equal pride and love that our mothers struggled to give us at

I can't find that name on my ancestry tree. The account I asked to have transferred is my great-grandmother's sister. But if they are related to the Wagner's, then I might not have gone far enough to find them.
and thank you again. if there are any pictures you need in the wheeling area, just ask me directly and i'll do my best to get them for you.
|Gary Adams||Additional Transfer Requests|
Me again. I'm also trying to connect the Horner side of the family. Please transfer the following to me: Sarah E. Horner (73204569), my Great Grandmother and her husband, Marcellus A. Horner (73204551); as well as my Uncle George Alvie Horner (73204530) and Aunt Ila L. Horner (73204500). Many thanks!
|Gary Adams||RE: ok|
This is exciting; meeting additional family members...albeit virtually. Thanks for the transfers. I have added a few additional photos, to include those of Christine Litman & family (your side of the family). I would like to do a little more with Pearl (30941856) if you'd like to transfer her memorial to me. I did add some photos. Thanks again for the transfers.
|Gary Adams||RE: Just me|
How nice! I must admit though, I don't understand the "once, twice, etc., removed" part. I know that you're related to Edward Wieneke, just can't figure out the line, first wife, second wife, etc. Please explain. Thanks! Also, would you mind doing the transfers for me? Thanks for that as well!

Deborah, thanks so much for all your work at Riverview Cemetery, and for posting the memorial for William H. Jack specifically. I have been looking for some sort of death record or obituary for him, without luck. Can you tell me where you found his death date?
Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

Good Afternoon! Edward Frederick Wieneke was married twice. His first wife was Elizabeth Fisher. They had 5 children. His second wife Minnie Colvin was my Great Grandmother, Emma Blanche Wieneke Horner's mother. Emma had 5 siblings (maybe more). Emma was my mother's mother.

Request that you transfer maintenance of my Grandmother and my Great Grandfather's memorials to me: Emma Blanche Wieneke Horner, #30363724; and Edward Frederick Wieneke, #26686134.
