Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and the 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.

That is fine, I am only a distant relative, but it's to see him linked to his family.

Thank you for letting us know we can quit looking. Feel confident now that they are at least resting there. Thank you!!
Thank You for Mary Suntum's tombstone picture.
there are not a lot of Suntum's and my greatgrandfather Christian Suntum is at the same cemetery. Now I will reseach if Mary is related.

Thank you Vicky for this information of the search for Edward Nicholson. This information is for his great-great grandson and is much appreciated. Your work is invaluable! Betty

My grandmother's actual grave site has been repaired thanks to the note you left on her "find a grave" memorial. I live in another state and would not have known of the situation except for your thoughtfulness. When a new photo of her marker is taken, the full information will then be visible. Thanks also, Vicky, for your patient guidance as I corrected the memorial information.
With my most sincere thanks,
Julia's granddaughter, Mary Anne
