Ancestor Poem
Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished marble 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 and 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

Eliza Ellen Finnell
You have Eliza listed under her father and mother (George and Catherine) as born in 1862. has 11 Feb 1872. I am still trying to reconcile the difference.

RE: re: Nelson Kidney
Rec'd 3 Kidney family transfers, God bless your heart for having such a wonderful soul. You have no idea how tickled family are when you so unselfishly work hard on a memorial, then unselfishly hand it over to family.

Thank you Debe, know you made the family very happy.

RE: re: Nelson Kidney
You got me on your "names that make me smile", I read every single one with a grin on my face.
Too funny and oh so enjoyable to read, thanks for sharing.
Will get back to you concerning Nelson Kidney, will write family shortly and ask.

Eva Donley #97253450
Hi Bebe---

Eva was a daughter of Pvt. John T. Bown #71146973 and Rachael Bown #135502054.

The name on John's tombstone was mistakenly put on it as "Brown"--but is wrong. I've checked with the person who put in John's entry, and he has said that it should be Bown, as it is listed in the records for John's regiment.

He says that he has contacted the VA about the problem, but that they don't have a way of "fixing" the tombstone--as it was put there back in the 1860s.

Rachael's obituary also shows her husband's name as being John T. Bown.

Just letting you know this as I'm about to request a connection for Eva to her parents.
