Bio Photo Favorite Epitaphs:

Hallowed Ground by Thomas Campbell:
To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.

Requiem by Robert Louis Stevenson

Under the wide and starry sky
Dig the grave and let me lie:
Glad did I live and gladly die,
And I laid me down with a will.

This be the verse you 'grave for me:
"Here he lies where he long'd to be;
Home is the sailor, home from the sea,
And the hunter home from the hill."

RE: Thank You!
You are very welcome. I have been updating a lot of the information on here for the people who are buried at Dover. As I was out taking pictures it was saddening for me, to see stones of forgotten people. So my goal was to make a difference so they will not be forgotten.

Lessie Shires Short Miller
Hi Melissa,

It is wonderful to see the old family photos you've posted.

Lessie Shires, who first married my great uncle Frank Sam Short, remarried to Isaac Miller; they and her daughter Lake Francis Short are buried in the Fairview Cemetery in Denison, with Lake buried as a Miller.

Frank Sam Short is buried in the Basin Springs Cemetery.

Lillian Fowler, Lessie's cousin, was first married to Frank Short's brother Jeff (Thomas Jefferson) Short, who is also buried at Basin Springs.

Hi, Melissa. If you'll send me a list of everyone you'd like photos for at Leanna, I'll take another shot at finding the Wrathers. Have checked twice, but as you said, they're in the book. There are new flags out for what I assume will be new markers for currently unmarked folk, so there's always hope!

Chambers family
Just wanted to say hello. I noted in your flower memorial for Mary Jane Chambers Elkins that we are "shirttail cousins". Mary Jane's father Edward is the brother of my 4th great grandmother, Elizabeth Chambers Hunter. As you might guess I am working on the Chambers branch at present.

Have a great day,

Melissa, If you sent another message after the one about the Posey in LA can you resend it to:, the other email address recognized it as spam and will not let me open it.
Thanks, sorry for the inconvenience.

Posey family
The Posey sisters and their father William Posey have a relative buried in LA. Richard Allen Posey is a son of Wm and a brother to the Posey sisters. Please add his link to Williams site
#23311033. Williams's wife Sarah "Sallie" Hutto Posey's mother Elizabeth Gillam Hutto is my gggg
grandmother. I have recently located Elizabeth's grave and am waiting on a picture to post. She is buried at Hopewell Cemetery in Troy Al. I am unable to locate where Sarah is buried. If you are a distant kin could you shed any light on this mystery. I assume William moved to Texas after Sarah died but where did he bury her?!! Elizabeth's husband is Jacob Hutto and he is buried at Pleasant Grove in Lincoln Al, close to me. One of Sarah's brothers Henry J Hutto (my ggg grandfather) is buried close by also. Thank for you help

Thanks Melissa!
You had mentioned wanting to discuss my line from John Elder.

I'll be happy to help any way I can.

I am a 4xg granddaughter of David Elder twice over, from each of my maternal grandparents.
