Bio and Links

Listen more often to things than to beings
‘Tis the ancestor's breath when the fire's voice is heard
‘Tis the ancestor's breath in the voice of the waters.

Those who have died have never, never left
The dead are not under the earth
They are in the rustling trees
They are in the groaning woods
They are in the crying grass,
They are in the moaning rocks
The dead are not under the earth.

lyrics adapted from the poem by Birago Diop, music by Ysaye M. Barnwell

Joyce, I have transferred this listing to you. I maintain many of these because the original member that created the pages for many of the people in Parkway and Osborne is no longer a Find a Grave contributor. If there are any others that I maintain you are interested in, please contact me.
Best regards :)

Hi Joyce,
Unfortunately, Ora Smith is in an unmarked grave. I posted a photo of the spot. Sorry the news wasn't better.

John H Lynn
Thank you Joyce for photographing my relative John H Lynn in Oswego Cemetery. I noticed that there is a very large Lynn stone and 2 long plots behind it.
I have a large number of Lynn relatives in this cemetery. Could you please tell me what it says on the other side?

Thank you.

Hazelwood Public Grounds. I am sorry to tell you that as I suspected he does not have any stone. Some of the people that are buried in this part of the cemetery have nothing more than a cement block placed there to prove someone is buried there. Not a name. Usually they have some sort of location on some of these, and I have even taken a few photos of folks there without stones, and have placed flowers on them. Sorry that there is not one. The person at the cemetery was interested when I said you mentioned he was a prominent person in the area. So you may want to do some family diggin' and let us know what you have and can share.

Lincoln Mem cem, Springfield
Hi Joyce, I have memorials made for the following surnames in Lincoln. Abbott, Billings, Dodd, Ellis, Ferguson, Hancock, Herndon, Jenkins, Long, Marshall, McDaniel, Rollins, Thompkins, and Todd. I am not a relative of anyone in this cemetery. You have relatives and Judy is doing extensive research so I would like to trf these over to someone who is really involved. Do you want any or all of these? If not, I will trf them to Judy for her research updating. I will wait to hear from you.
Thanks, Nancy
