A Poem for Reflection

The limbs that move, the eyes that see,
These are not entirely me;
Dead men and women helped to shape
The mold which I do not escape;
The words I speak, my written line,
These are not uniquely mine.
For in my heart and in my will
Old ancestors are warring still,
Celt, Roman, Saxon, and all the dead
From whose rich blood my veins are fed,
In aspect, gesture, voices, tone,
Flesh of my flesh, bone of my bone;
In fields they tilled I plow the sod,
I walk the mountain paths they trod;
And round my daily steps arise
The good and bad of those I comprise.

~by English poet Richard Rolle, written over 600 years ago

The author may be unknown of this poem, but the name shown at the bottom was cut from a newspaper with this poem as it is written. Perhaps, he wrote it or just submitted it.

I would rather have one little rose
From the garden of a friend,
Than to have the choicest flowers
When my stay on earth must end.

I would rather have a pleasant word
In kindness said to me
Than flattery when my heart is still
And this life has ceased to be.

I would rather have a loving smile
From friends I know are true
Than tears shed round my casket
When this world I've bid adieu.

Bring me all the flowers today
Whether pink, white, or red
I'd rather have one blossom now
Than a truckload when I'm dead.
~John Dillon, Sr.
Frazeysburg, Ohio

RE: Ellen Corry
You're right about the year span, of course. I'm embarrassed to make that kind of a math mistake (although I sometimes joke about the three kinds of statisticians -- those who can count accurately, and those who can't).
I'm not personally related to this family. Someone I was researching a couple years ago (encountered in Iowa) happened to have been baptized at Grace Episcopal Church in Philadelphia, and when I realized there was a very intact parish register online I made a project of putting in Find A Grave those recorded burials that had not already been memorialized by others. When I encounter more than one person with the same surname in the same cemetery I like to look more closely at the family using and other resources. Occasionally I notice family historians working on these families who either are relatives or are part of a small community where the family was well known and interact a little with the researcher.

Thank you so much for taking the time photographic the headstone of my Great-grandfather William and his wife. You don't know how much this means to me.

Thanks again.

RE: Jean Doherty
The entry in the record book would probably have said (in German) something like: survived by 6 sons and 3 daughters.

The good news is that I have a photocopy of the original record in German and would be happy to send it to you. Use my personal e-mail to send me your mailing address and I will send you copies of all pertinent German records.

I used that format in case I discovered the names of these sons and daughters at a later date and could just fill in the blanks. Because they are not buried in the Moravian Cemretery at Lititz, they may have lived to adulthood, moved away and been buried in another Moravian Cemetery such as Bethlehem or Nazareth. I'm always surprised at how mobile these early Moravians were - going from community to community - and horsepower of the four-legged kind was always involved. No easy task!

Walter Burns Jr
hi - thanks for updating Walter burns Jr mothers name. I also just sent a suggested correction with his full date of birth and death (I have a copy of the death cert from Ancestry ;-)
Oh and his middle name was Joseph.

Thanks for the suggested correction to Harriet Reilley and not Read. I have deleted one and corrected the other. The information is always better when we help each other. Again thanks,
Chris and Cheryl Smith

Joseph Sylvester Ramer

You have a wonderful photo posted on Joseph's memorial - would you know who the woman is that is standing next to him? He's a relation to us through the Mattern line.

Thank you - and thanks so much for all of the work you've done. It's amazing and I appreciate it!

RE: Madgwick
If you look closely at the headstone and make it as big as you can, the name on the headstone is actually "Earl", not Carl... The font makes it difficult to read, but there's a - in the middle...

Also, if you look at the "C" in Fredrick, right underneath, it's easy to tell the difference...

Confusing, eh?
