We are the chosen. In each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts, but instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the storytellers of the tribe.
Wife of Leonard Ross Tudor.
Daughter-in-law of Donald Wayne & Annie Mae (McCann) Tudor, of Uvalde, TX.
Mother of Jason Ryan Fallin of Houston, Harris County, TX.
Daughter of Jean Marie (Linderman) Frederick Mancill and LeRoy Eugene Frederick.
Step Daughter of Louis Clifford Mancill, formerly of Mobile, Alabama.
Sister of Joseph Lee, Phyllis Jean (Hyden), Karl Thomas, Patricia Marie (Vanderford)(Harrod), and Sarah Kay (Moore) Frederick.
Granddaughter of Phyllis Eugenia Adele (Palen) Linderman; formerly of Caledonia, MN, & Harry William Linderman, of Houston, TX; formerly from Dubuque, IA.
Granddaughter of Elizabeth Annie "Bessie" (Mazac) Frederick, from Crosby, TX (formerly Granger, TX); & Charlie F. Frederick, (aka Karel Fredrick) (formerly from Moravia) from Taylor, TX.
Great Granddaughter of Leopold Frank Palen & Besse Leone (Koch) Palen, from Luxembourg; and Jan "John" & Annie Marie "Mary"(Dudika) Mazac, of Moravia.

Lord, help me dig into the past
And sift the sands of time,
That I might find the roots that made
This family tree of mine.
Lord, help me trace the ancient roads
On which my father's trod,
And led them through so many lands
To find our present sod.
Lord, help me find an ancient book
Or dusty manuscript,
That's safely hidden now away
In some forgotten crypt.
Lord, let it bridge the gap that haunts
My soul when I can't find,
The missing link between some name
That ends the same as mine.

************************************************* DEAR ANCESTOR
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.

Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.

Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.

Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.

Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.

Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.

Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

RE: Isaiah H. Davis
Thanks for your response. Just to let you know there are no Confederate soldiers buried in Nashville National...only Union.

Saint Marys Catholic Cemetery/Frank HAVELKA
Thank you for bringing my attention to the mistake I made in Frank's bio.
I put Frank NEMEC'S note on Frank HAVELKA'S memorial. It must have been a late night. he he

Mary Palen Hengel Borth
1930 & 1940 Census show Mary Borth at 163 E 5th St, Winona, Minnesota. In 1930 Ernest Borth is head of household, with Mary, 2 children from his 1st marriage and Mary Palen (mother-in-law) and Louise Hengel (Hnery's sister). In 1940 census at same address it shows Mary Borth as widowed head of household & Louise Hengel as sister in law. There is a record for Mary Berth dying August 8, 1954 in Ramsey, Minnesota. That may be her. Perhaps you can contact the cemetery for a burial date to see if it lines up with that date. At least they should be able to tell what year she was buried.

Gee Cemetery
I am related to Jesse Gee of VA and KY through his son, John Sanford Gee. I recently had the opportunity to locate and visit the Gee Cemetery in KY and to say it is a mess is an understatement. It exists in a dense thicket and is virtually impossible to get into to photograph stones. Abundant undergrowth of greenbrier, poison ivy etc. I took a few vague photos of headstones from the outer limits. There are at least 70 burials there. I will be contacting people in KY in an effort to get it cleaned up and respected. I will post a few of the photos. If we can start a grassroots effort, perhaps we can get this shameful mess put in order.

Mary McCann Tucker
McCann connection
Hello back to you. You asked about a possible family connection for your husband' mother. My maiden name McCann. No connection. I had my father's Y-DNA done to try and break a brick wall in the mid 1800's. Sure 'nuf as we say in Texas, the family was McCain/McKain that got registered as McCann in their first record in Texas around 1860. It broke thru that brick wall and proved connections way, way back. Good Hunting.

Lenora Christ
Thank you for letting me know. I researched the issue and found that she was buried in the cemetery I her listed in. Her death certificate states she was buried in Needville, not Rosenberg... and the Fort Bend County Library has the location as St. Michael's Catholic Church Cemetery. Is it possible that there are two headstones? If this is the case, there would be a cenotaph. Both pages would be acceptable.

You are welcome. I have pretty much come to the end of what I can find on my family. I have been working on it for 5 years now. I am stuck with the McCallister's in Broughshane, Antrim, Ireland as they don't have records like the U.S. does back in the 1880's. I was told the old death certificates don't even show the next of kin usually so I can't track which Randall McAlister I need. Been quite a ride! My Great Great Grandpa John McAlister was 7 ft. tall and came to the U.S. alone in during the potato family...sad life at that time! Good luck in your searches.
