Dear Ancestor

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
In this field of green.
The name and date are chiseled out
For all the world to see.

It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I'd exist,
You died long before I was born.

Yet we are of one, you and I,
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.

Dear Ancestor, the life you lived
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.

Re: Ralph & Natalie O'Quinn requests, Roselawn, Baton Rouge, LA
Your O'Quinn requests are on one side of the large marker. On the other side is Row family. There is a Merrill family marker next to these.

In the same plot are

Ronald Lea Merrill 1935-1992
Natalie Merrill O'Quinn 1899-1973
Ralph L O'Quinn 1891-1963
Thelma Merrill Row 1898-1991
Walter S Row 1899-1951

Although there is another burial next to Ralph 1963, there is no marker. I think there are some other Merrill's but, for whatever reason, I forgot to take those photos. I'll try to get them next trip.

Re: Betty Reitzell Gunther, Roselawn, Baton Rouge, LA
I will get a better photo of this one on my next trip. Stepped in an ant nest, and the humidity is awful today. Just check back next week. I will leave her and Minnie, on my list for next trip.

Wylie, Thanks for the obit. I updated her memorial and linked her to her family. Obits always help with that. So glad you sent it.

Re: Robert Lee Morgan request, Roselawn, Baton Rouge, LA
In the same plot are

Alexander W B Guild 1899-1937
Emma Parent Morgan 1871-1933
Robert Lee Morgan 1872-1951
Jacob K Netterville 1866-1934
Mary Ruth Anderson Netterville 1875-1951

Don't know how and/or if they are related. Also looks like 1 grave without a marker. You can check with the cemetery office for that information. Should you need better photos, please do not hesitate.
