Welcome to my profile.|
Everyone who knows me knows that I love getting to know my ancestors and have spent the better part of the last thirty years devoted to it. I enjoy walking through cemeteries and looking at memorial stones. I find it relaxing and peaceful and have met some of the nicest people through Find A Grave!
It makes me happy to help someone add a page to their history and keep the person's memory alive. I also feel that it may give a family a type of closure to know where a loved one is located.
My pictures are not copyrighted. You may certainly use my monument photos for your PERSONAL PRIVATE family trees. I am finding my pictures on Ancestry without source, and not linked, which is illegal. IF YOU CANNOT PROPERLY SOURCE OTHER'S MATERIAL, DO NOT USE IT!!
Please use the new Edit System when possible for making any name or date changes to a memorial. You add the changes yourself and I will approve them or contact you for further clarification.
I am happy to add or correct information for you on memorials. I am somewhat liberal with transfers of anyone not related to me, but please state your specific relationship.
Please also feel free to contact me via email or post a message regarding any additional related family members. Perhaps we are cousins!
THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN
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.

I must need more coffee today! That is John Thompson Adam and he had John Rufus Adam whom I am descended from. Can't wake up today. Connie
|Connie Fullmer||Agnes Adam|
Hi, Does anyone know whatever happened to John and James Adam's sister Agnes? She seemed to fall out of the Census between the age of 5 and 14. Also, was she James R. Adam's twin? I am descended from John Rufus Adam the oldest brother in the family and we haven't had any info on this family at all until Chloe started posting on Find-A-Grave which I am eternally grateful for. My dad is 84 this Friday and I have been able to fill in the family line all the way back to Scotland because of her! :) Connie

I apologize for the lack of clarity of this photo. I tried from multiple angles and this was the "best of the lot".The monument has a lot of lime/calcium build-up and wear.

I have included a photo of the Darling Family Monument. Unfortunately, I was unable to locate a marker for her.

Thanks for 'going the extra mile' with the census info on Ray. Ray's (second) wife, Arphema, went back to Idaho sometime after 1930 and is apparently buried there.
|Marcia ||RE: Rev Ole Andreas Mellby|
It is still there. She spelled Mellby as Melby so it doesn't show up if you type Mellby.

There are 2 listings for Rev Mellby at LeSueur River Lutheran in New Richland maybe you and Julrene Thornberg can put them together.
