A Psalm Of Life |
TELL me not, in mournful numbers,
Life is but an empty dream ! —
For the soul is dead that slumbers,
And things are not what they seem.
Life is real ! Life is earnest!
And the grave is not its goal ;
Dust thou art, to dust returnest,
Was not spoken of the soul.
Not enjoyment, and not sorrow,
Is our destined end or way ;
But to act, that each to-morrow
Find us farther than to-day.
Art is long, and Time is fleeting,
And our hearts, though stout and brave,
Still, like muffled drums, are beating
Funeral marches to the grave.
In the world's broad field of battle,
In the bivouac of Life,
Be not like dumb, driven cattle !
Be a hero in the strife !
Trust no Future, howe'er pleasant !
Let the dead Past bury its dead !
Act,— act in the living Present !
Heart within, and God o'erhead !
Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us
Footprints on the sands of time ;
Footprints, that perhaps another,
Sailing o'er life's solemn main,
A forlorn and shipwrecked brother,
Seeing, shall take heart again.
Let us, then, be up and doing,
With a heart for any fate ;
Still achieving, still pursuing,
Learn to labor and to wait.
Henry W. Longfellow

You are very welcome! I find it fascinating to follow the thread of lives in a family. Happy Autumn!

Awesome, I am so very glad someone else was able to find those stones. Really, sometimes I wonder about myself! But yes, I will certainly link the parents as you ask.
I got a lot of help from Tony, the groundskeeper at Oak Cliff Cemetery in Derby. He is master of his own little kingdom there. It is a truly lovely little cemetery, very gracefully laid out and managed.
Glad to help, sorry I missed the other members of your family!
All the best
Hallo Melinda, I stopped by to visit Mrs. Heany and realised you paid her a visit as well. I had it in my calendar to visit her and my friend Harry. They both have a same day celebration.
Also thought about saying hallo to you as well.

Hi Melinda, my name is Donna and I just found my great grandmothers maiden name, Adalade Guyon. She married William Eccleston and their daughter, Sophronia, is my grandmother. Matilda and Frances are my gr. gr. grandparents.
Thanks for all that you do......Donna

Okay then if you send me a invite to the tree i will take a look around and see if i can help.
Send it to my email@example.com
|Rachel McCulloch||RE: Edwin...|
I'm so glad you like it!!
I get worried sometimes that might upset somebody!I can get a little carried away. I just look at pictures sometime when they come up on the home page. If I see someone that I can't help but look a little closer. :)
Where in New York are you looking? Have you got a tree on ancestry by any chance? Just wondering. I will be happy to help if i can.
Enjoy the picture!!
Hallo Melinda, I wanted to apologise for the late reply to your message. I thought I had answered back, until now.
In general doing fine, thanks for your concern. I do hope all is well with you.
I visited Edwin, and was surprised to see a cleaned up fotograf of the one you posted on his profile.
I do love visiting your family when I can, thank you so much for your positive output.

My pleasure, I'm just sorry that is the case, always a bit of a let down when there is no monument. It's been the case a lot in my family, we've always been little worker bees, not wealthy, going all the way back to colonial times. This, as I said, is a very small yard, it only took an hour to walk the entire thing and take a raft of pics.
|Marguerite||RE: Eleanor Pearce|
Hi Melinda - I'm not related so no need to transfer. I was just doing the same as you and took photos of additional family members to link. Me too - I'm always hoping family will come forward to claim the profiles/photos I've created and discover their relatives. I live close by in New Baltimore. Thanks for your note and much appreciate all your photography too~
