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.
If anyone has an addition or correction to anything I have posted please contact me and I will quickly correct it. I am more than happy to turn over ownership to anyone who requests it. AND PLEASE IF YOU SEE THAT I HAVE ENTERED A NAME TWICE, PLEASE TELL ME ABOUT IT. It is easy to make a duplicate without realizing it.
Also -- another FindAGrave contributor wrote this... I think it says it all:
Please note: This is NOT a numbers game, Nor a "who has who" game here. Some of us are serious about getting names & photos of headstones that are not going to be around and making memorial pages. That is what this is about, making/recording that person lived and died. Like many, I spend long, long hours either in a cemetery, or adding memorial pages to Findagrave.com. I would love to see some of the headstones of family members that were in the 1700 & 1800 of my family, but that isn't going to happen as many are gone.
It doesn't matter who has the memorial page, the important thing is that someone cared enough to make a memorial page to honor that person and that is what findagrave.com is all about. Honoring the deceased, NOT who has what memorial or how many that they have. Thanks!

Dear - Dear Old Bones,
Thank you so very much for the transfer of the memorials of Margaret Wisecup Smalley and her other family members. That's the best thing that has happened to me this month. Wishing good things come your way! Grandma Patti
|Adam Sweet||Ludlow to Drake|
I really appreciate you changing the names around for the memorials of the Drake family. Lavina is my 3rd greatgrandmother and Charity is my 4th. Thanks again. Adam
|Adam Sweet||Charles and Marvin Ludlow|
Further- Charles and Marvin are also Drake and not Ludlow
|Adam Sweet||Charity E. Ludlow|
The memorial for Charity E. Ludlow #54848156 is not correct. She is actually Charity E. Drake wife of James M. Drake. I have seen this error before and I believe it stems from an inscription on her daughter Lavina (Drake) Ludlow's tomb that says "erected by her mother" - further Lavina's maiden name is Drake and her married name is Ludlow (she was the wife of William Ludlow). To complicate things further Charity E. (Young) Drake was married a 2nd time after the death of her husband James Drake, to a man named George Loree - although she apparently decided to be buried with her first husband under the name Drake. So her full name could be given as Charity Esther (Young) Drake Loree. For proof I will post some images on her memorial page. Thank you for your time. Adam Sweet
