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.

--Author Unknown

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

---------traditional gaelic blessing


Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am in a thousand winds that blow,
I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain,
I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush,
I am in the graceful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight,
I am the starshine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom,
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave bereft
I am not there. I have not left.
----Mary Elizabeth Frye 1932---------

Mistake on grave in Pine Bluff
Please correct the name of my grandmother, Mary Elizabeth Hardin(1894-1930) who was married to my grandfather, Samuel Ben McCay(1874-1934). Both of them are buried in Pine Bluff Cemetery located in Blount County Alabama.
Thank you,

RE: Gooch Changes
Joel
Do you by any chance live in north Missouri? I've been looking for some help on cleaning up the Gooch Cemetery where Gideon and Nancy are buried. Probably in November.

RE: Gooch Changes
Hi Joel
My line is
Larry Van Dyke (Me)
Vera Kate Duncan Van Dyke (my mother)
William Haden Duncan (my mother's father)
Mildred Gooch Duncan (my grandfather's mother)
Gideon Gooch Jr. (my great grandmother's father)
Gideon Gooch Sr. (my great grandmother's grandfather) Gideon Sr. is the one buried in Gooch Cemetery in Chariton County. We don't know where Gideon Gooch Jr. is but we believe he is buried in California where he went during the Gold Rush.

RE: Gooch Changes
So we could be related somewhere along the way. Gideon and Nancy Leavell Gooch in the Gooch Cemetery in Chariton County are my g-g-g-grandparents.

RE: Gooch Changes

Thanks. I will probably have more as I get the Chariton and Randolph County Gooch families all sorted out. I've been working on them for a while and it is slow going. They are all related to me and I'm trying to figure out just how.

Feake
Hello I see you want photos of any Feake gravestones. Are you sure there are any buried here as I have access to the burial records and it is not a surname I'm familiar with. Can you be more specific?

Cheers, Lynn
