Bio Photo DEAR ANCESTOR

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 DO 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?

Thomas Henry Allen
Sandy,
I searched very hard for an obit for Thomas Allen, but I can only find a death notice:

ALLEN
Thomas, 1322 SW 51. Announcements later by Hunter Funeral Home.

Oklahoman - Wed, Feb 6, 1974

He is also not listed in the OK History Society's Oklahoman Obituary Index for 1974.

Wish I could have found something!

John & Mary Witherup
Hi Sandy: The surname does have many variants - as I have discovered. If you need anything else, please contact and I'll try to help out as best as I can. Good luck. Bruce.

John & Mary Witherup
Hi Sandy: You have my permission to use my picture of John Witherup and wife Mary Brockington at your ancestry.com site. I found this image/photo among my mother's papers years ago and it was identified as "John Witherup and Wife." I am not sure if the original (which I do not have) was an old daguerrotype or tintype or was simply a clever pen-and-ink drawing, but the hair locks seemed to add a degree of authenticity to it. Are you connected to the Witherup family? Bruce #47425897.

You're most welcome. Thanks to your inquiry, I discovered I had clicked for email notices not to be sent to me. That is now corrected. Wanda
