"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.

Efton Clifford Garrison
My Paternal Grandmother was Efton Clifford's sister. From what my Grandmother told me, Clifford was working at a store in Snyder when there was a disturbance by a black man outside. He went out on the street to help defuse the situation and was shot dead by the man. I posted the picture from his funeral. I have not been able to find a newspaper account of the event, but am still looking. I have lots of information on the Garrisons if I can help you in any way.

Gordon, Freddie & Ida
I sent a couple of incorrect relationship SACs to you (I put the child's # in the spouse slot, oops), and just now sent the corrections. Sorry for the error! The new SACs will fix it.
