Bio and Links
Bio Photo If anyone has anything to add to a memorial I've made PLEASE let me know and I will be glad to add the information! I Love to link their parents to each memorial or have their obituary to add.
I'm interested about who my ancestors were and how they may have influenced who I am today. I am also researching my husbands ancestors and am learning as much as I can to pass on to our daughter. It's also fascinating to learn about the many different church backgrounds they all have had. Still searching in PA!!

I found this through a friend:
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.

Glad to help. It is a large old cemetery. Have been there two days and plan on finishing going through all the stones tomorrow. If I have added any new ones that you would like transferred, just send me list.

Anna Carr headstone
Hello and thank you for posting a picture of Anna Carr's headstone. A cemetery employee sent me a picture and I forgot to delete the request. Would you mind removing the duplicate copy? Thanks again.

It is up to you since you knew her. They are buried at the same cemetery with matching tombstones. He is a cousin of mine. I am trying to go through the information I have and connect the families together.

RE: Charles Armstrong
No problem, Laura. Incidentally, I just saw your approval for Nathen Zepp. I recall his dc cites his first name as Nathan. The only place I've seen it as Nathen is on his stone. Makes me wonder if the stone is in error.

You are welcome. I always feel family can do so much better at managing a memorial.
