Strangers in the Box |
By Pamela A. Harazim
Come, look with me inside this drawer, In this box I've often seen, At the pictures, black and white, Faces proud, still, serene. I wish I knew the people, These strangers in the box, Their names and all their memories Are lost among my socks. I wonder what their lives were like.
How did they spend their days? What about their special times? I'll never know their ways. If only someone had taken time To tell who, what, where, when, These faces of my heritage Would come to life again. Could this become the fate
Of the pictures we take today? The faces and the memories Someday to be tossed away? Make time to save your pictures, Seize the opportunity when it knocks, Or someday you and yours could be
The strangers in the box.
If there are any graves that I have put on here that are in your family lines and you want them I will Transfer them. With the understanding that I would like to keep my family lines. I love going to cemeteries and I feel if we dont get the information from their graves that they maybe lost. Within my short time of doing these photos and grave I have seen with my own eyes graves that are unreadable now. But these pictures have brought them back to life.

Sorry I have no information about him. Do you want me to transfer his memorial to you?

There is a Shaw family history book at the Genealogy Library in Mt Gilead, Ohio. "Descendants of John and Susannah Shaw 1694-1987, compiled by Jesse & Janet Shaw, Fall - 1987" On page 26, John and Pamela are mentioned along with their children. It gives "Pamelia" born 10 Apr 1807, in Connecticut, and died 25 Mar 1865, in Morrow County, Ohio. "Pamelia was a school teacher in Delaware County, Ohio" Page 27 has photos of John, Pamelia and their house. I photocopied these two pages and can send them to you if you wish. Another note is there was a Messenger tombstone in Shawtown Cemetery, it seemed like the dates where after Pamela died though.

Pamela Messenger Shaw is simply a picture I took while I was in Shawtown Cem looking for other people. I do not have any info on her. Sorry.

You did not give a memorial number or cemetery and the name Pamelia Messenger Shaw does not come up in Find A Grave, so I have no idea who you are asking about. Sorry.

Thank you much for transferring this memorial to me - this is my dad's family so I really appreciate it Doris
Thank you so much for the transfer. I have linked Susanna to her husband, parents, daughter, and added her maiden name. Much appreciated.
Love the poem, too.
