Death comes once, but a cemetery is forever
Phillip M. O'Shea

The quality, not the longevity, of one's life is what is important. --Dr. Martin Luther King Jr

Please feel free to contact me about any graves I have listed. If I have listed someone that you are related to and I am not and you would like them transferred to you, please just let me know. If we are both related then I will have to think about it. Please feel free to use any of my photo's anywhere you want.

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
(rev 21:4)

"Dear Ancestor
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and the date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who cares
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."

A limb has fallen from the family tree.
I keep hearing a voice that says, "Grieve not for me.
Remember the best times, the laughter, the song.
The good life I lived while I was strong.
Continue my heritage, I'm counting on you.
Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through.
My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest.
Remembering all, how I truly was blessed.
Continue traditions, no matter how small.
Go on with your life, don't worry about falls
I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin.
Until the day comes we're together again.

Mildred Brownell
Just an FYI on Mildred's gravestone. Her grave marker is not in very good shape. It appears that acid from leaves have leached on to her headstone over the years. I did sweep off the leaves and will add the photo I took.

Michael Tabor
Tabor Graves at Bradshaw Cemetery
Goof afternoon Barbara,
My name is Michael Tabor and I live in Indiana. I am currently working on a history of the Tabor family and would like your permission to use two of your photos of the graves of Charles Bradshaw Tabor and Minnie Bradshaw Tabor in my project. THese are in the William Bradshaw Cemetery in Russell County, VA.
I would credit you under each photo with a statement like "Courtesy of Barabara Anne [Brownell] Porter" and any other wording you prefer.
Thanks for your help.
All my best,
Michael Tabor

Isaac Griffith
It appears that we have an ancestor in common. Isaac Griffith (1800-1882) is my GGG Grandfather. I descend through his daughter, Nancy (1835-1932), who married John M. Honaker.

I am sorry I did not find a stone for him. I searched that entire section, it just is not that big.

Please see the caption on the photo.

I know what you mean about 'Trickel' or 'Trickle'. The book 'Early Pioneers of Champaign County' by Milton W Matthews had her named spelled Trickle.
