"The Chosen"
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 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. All tribes have one. We have been called, as it were, by our genes. Those who have gone before cry out to us: "Tell our story". So, we do. In finding them, we somehow find ourselves. How many graves have I stood before now and cried? I have lost count. How many times have I told the ancestors, "You have a wonderful family; you would be proud of us".
How many times have I walked up to a grave and felt somehow there was love there for me. I cannot say. It goes beyond just documenting facts. It goes to who I am, and why I do the things I do. It goes to seeing a cemetery about to be lost forever to weeds and indifference and saying - I can't let this happen. The bones here are the bones of my bones, and the flesh of my flesh. It goes to doing something about it.
It goes to pride in what our ancestors were able to accomplish. How they contributed to what we are today. It goes to respecting their hardships and losses, their never giving in or giving up, their resoluteness to go on and build a life for their family. It goes to deep pride that the fathers fought and some died to make and keep us a nation. It goes to a deep and immense undertanding that they were doing it for us. It is of equal pride and love that our mothers struggled to give us birth, without them we could not exist, and so we love each one, as far back as we can reach. That we might be born.

Is the K Perry page Inactive? Sent you the 1880 article
I sent you the 1880 article that you asked for, but I don't know if you received it. I hope it helps, if you did receive.

births for Thomas, Mary and Alpheus - edits sent by Chris Chapman http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=mr&MRid=47599337
You will need to consult with that member if you are seeking primary source info.

Adding biographical info in flowers is against F.A.G. rules. The information should be sent as edits to memorial managers for update. Thanks

I hope the member who sent the edits can point you in the right direction. Good luck!

I transferred yesterday her record to you so you now have ownership. I can't add anything to her memorial. Marie

Thank for the extra info on Eliza. I type so fast that sometimes I miss a letter or the computer doesn't keep up with me.
