Bio and Links
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.

I am researching the families of:

Louis Charles Hughson - info
I see on his death date you wrote Feb 12 but it is Feb 14. Just wanted to point out so you could change if you want. The stone shows it correct too. Thanks for all your hard work!

Pelkey grave markers
I was out at St. Mary's/Mt. Calvary today. I found some Pelkeys but not the two you requested. I didn't have enough time to walk the whole cemetery. I'll look again next time I'm, out there.

I don't know how much you know about St. Mary's. It has no identifying markers for grave location and there are no sexton records available either. There are many stones broken and/or upended. Luckily its probably got less than 2,000 graves because you just have to walk it all and hope to see what you're trying to find.

RE: Michael Streicher
Hi Jared,
Thank you for pointing out my bad connection to Mike Streicher. I knew Mike and Charlie Streicher as 2 bachelors living together on Streicher Road. They were moms cousins and dad worked their farm while my brother and I played in their yard and barn. We got turkeys from their nephew, Danny Ferstle next door.

Groth Photos
Hi Jared, It was so nice to talk to you today. I thought more about the family photos after we got off the phone. I may be interested in some to show my children their family roots! It would be awesome to see pics from Walters younger years. I could distribute pics too as I am in contact with a couple of the family members from the Arrasmith family I keep in touch with Johnny's family and Also Nieces from Groth Family cousins off my children. If you could share these Either scan and send or mail. It would be great. Thanks for all your efforts to piece these family roots together. God Bless You and Merry Christmas, Rita
