"Life's Greatest Handicap is Being Contented."
"I believe that love and prayer are the most important things in life," -Anne Nichols
Excerpt from "Abie's Irish Rose:
FATHER WHALEN. Sure, we're all trying to get to the same place when we pass on. We're just going by different routes. We can't all go on the same train.
RABBI. And just because you are not riding on my train, why should I say your train won't get there?
— Anne Nichols (1891-1966), American playwright; from Abie's Irish Rose (play), 1922
Haunting eyes peering at me
Through the veiled, forgotten past;
Spirit voices, phantom actors
Beckon me to join their cast...
Time unravels ancient stitches
As I vainly grasp each thread;
Scattered whispers, faded photos
Tell the tale of those long dead...
Withered memories pressed like flowers
Speak of young love once in bloom;
Scented traces faintly linger
Over long-neglected tomb...
Ghostly chanting leads me blindly
Down each darkened corridor..
As I ponder things that once were
-Things that are will be no more...
One of my favorite poems by Alan Seeger:
"I Have a Rendezvous with Death"
I have a rendezvous with Death
At some disputed barricade,
When Spring comes back with rustling shade
And apple-blossoms fill the air--
I have a rendezvous with Death
When Spring brings back blue days and fair.
It may be he shall take my hand
And lead me into his dark land
And close my eyes and quench my breath--
It may be I shall pass him still..
I have a rendezvous with Death
On some scarred slope or battered hill.
When Spring comes round again this year
And the first meadow-flowers appear.
God knows 'twere better to be deep
Pillowed in silk and scented down.
Where love throbs out in blissful sleep,
Pulse nigh to pulse and breath to breath,
Where hushed awakenings are dear--
But I've a rendezvous with Death
At midnight in some flaming town,
When Spring trips forth again this year,
And I to my pledged word am true,
I shall not fail that rendezvous.
-Alan Seeger (1888-1916)
I would like to take this time to thank all of those who have visited my family including, my granny, Vera Griffis Westberry (who got me started on genealogy). Also many thanks to those who have visited my Anne Nichols and Adelaide Matthews Memorials. These were two wonderful ladies of the theatre who knew each other as friends and wrote plays together. I am fortunate to be related to Anne and to have known her and Adelaide through the eyes and memories of my friend, Janet. I am always looking for more information on Anne and Adelaide. If anyone has information please contact me or Janet (capecodder). After all, Anne's most popular quote was:
"Life's Greatest Handicap Is Being Contented!"
The following poem was found in my mother's (Hazel Westberry Paesano) belongings after she passed:
"The Time Is Now"
If you are ever going to love me,
Love me now while I can know
The sweet and tender feelings,
Which from true affection flow.
Love me now, while I am living...
Do not wait until I'm gone
And then have it chiseled in marble,
Sweet words on ice-cold stone.
If you have tender thoughts of me, please tell me now...
If you wait until I am sleeping, never to awaken,
There will be death between us and I won't hear you then.
So, if you love me , even a little bit,
Let me know while I am living so I can treasure it.

Just to clarify my previous post. It is regarding John Moses Curry that was married to Ella Nora Carter.
|Verna Mae (Braddock) Campbell||John Moses Curry|
Please see my RootsWeb site regarding the above mentioned:http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=vernamaecampbell&id=I25407
These are the right people and the dates are the same, however, I was told that John Moses Curry's parents are William Edward Curry and Edith A. Hartley by their granddaughter.

|Robert Bogers||RE: William Griffis|
Thanks for the help. I suspect we are related. My family is the Grffis family from Blackshear, Ware County and southern Ga. My wife's family is the Carters from Appling county and southern Ga. When I get a chance to sit down, I will email you and we can compare notes. Thanks again...

|pam miltiades||Mary "Pollie" Cook and Richard Bennett|
James Cook and Margaret Hawthorne are not the parents of Mary Pollie Cook. This family moved to Mississippi. Somehow this has gone viral on the internet. I have done the research and would be glad to send it to you. There were two James Cooks in Effingham County. I have all the proof on my ancestry web site. I would love for you to look at it and see what you think and post the corrections. I see many people copy this post for proof. Thank you. firstname.lastname@example.org
Hey Bob good to hear from you. After getting cancer back in 2008 I decided to do little searching on somethings that I wanted to know about my ancestors an found this site. I seen the things on here about Aunt V and Granny and I must say I LOVE them. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of them.
That's fine. If you want them transferred, let me know. Lynn
