"Dear Ancestor"

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 to visit you.

Correction Of Names
Hi Bobby, Thank you for all your hard work in preserving the family history. I just saw #81935667, James Bynum page, his correct name is"James Monroe Bynum" not Mae, and his wife is"Etta Dona Jett Bynum" only one n in Dona. You have really done an outstanding job in all you have gathered, thank you, Diane Bynum

RE: Selden Jett Cemetery
Hey Bobby, just give me a few weeks to start again on the family tree - had to put my mom's house up for sale so she can move in with me so everything is crazy right now. I will be glad to help any way I can. There are if I remember correctly 7 graves on the Beach Farm cemetery. My dad's brother and sister are buried there. Just give me a little time to get my mom settled and I will figure it out for you. And this spring if you want me to take you up there will be glad too. Also to the Sid Jett one and the Seldon Jett one. Take care and will talk to you soon.

RE: Granville Jett
My 2nd-great-grandmother Sallie Whitesides's maiden name was Jett. Her memorial is #73127206 if you have the time to take a look.

Irene Juanita Jett Pinkston
I am in Columbia, TN and occasionally travel around to check on cemeteries. When I find a person who is not on Find A Grave, I create a page and then find info on that person.

I am in the middle of Mars Hill Cemetery near Cornersville, TN. I just finished Irene Juanita Jett Pinkston (#128352695) where I came across your Irene Juanita Jett Pinkston page (#82369913). At this point (yes, I have created duplicates by accident, before) I usually allow the original page to stand and let the owner take whatever info I have before I delete it. However, since yours is located in the wrong cemetery, and there are no links, I was thinking the best thing would be if I transfer my page to you and you delete yours. A lot easier, I think.

Please let me know what you decide. If I have any more you wish to have (and I have a few Jetts), let me know.

RE: Jetts buried on Beach Farm
Hi Bobby, yes you have to follow the road all the way past the barns = then you have to walk ( on level land) and then have to hike up the mountain on the left. It's up there I promise LOL - would have been glad to take you guys up there if I had known. Let me know how you are related to me LOL I have at least 450 pages on the JETTS and a lot of tombstone pics. Just let me know. Trish

RE: Mort Jett Cemetery
Yes, I have updated the records for George, Dora, Elizabeth, Vardie, and Reed. Looks like we are about equally related to them, but I don't mind to transfer. I will take care of that today.

Mort Jett Cemetery
Bobby, thanks for adding so many photos for this cemetery. I got your emails for George, Dora, and Elizabeth Hollon. I think the best route here is for you to add the photos to my memorials so you get credit for the pictures, instead of me copying them from yours. Also, if you are related, I'll be happy to transfer my memorials to you. I am related as well, but it is distantly.

Thank you for the photo of Elizabeth Hollon. If it's okay with you, I'm going to add it to my tree.

Joseph/Lucinda Wood
Hi, I'm making a list for a some-day trip to Oakland Cemetery in Iowa City and I see you have requests for Joseph and Lucinda Wood. Both of these memorials already have pictures which were added by you, so I'm confused about what you're asking for exactly. Was this a mistake or could you clarify what you're wanting? Thanks. :)
