-----------Dear Ancestor------------ "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'd 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."
Haley Herbert Veits/Anna May Plott Veits Hello.......I'm Mike Owens. Hal Veits was my Grandfather. His wife, Anna May Plott Veits, was my Grandmother. They had four (4) children not 3. The fourth and oldest was Dallas, born in 1909. He died in the 80's but I do not currently have his month, day, year of death info. Should have soon but I think he is buried in the same cemetary. Thanks so much for your efforts, regards, Mike owens
Elmira's Stone Thought I'd best clarify myself before you think the worst of me! After the fact - I see that I made a wrong comment about Elmira's stone being shorter than it had originally been. Until you mentioned it being in the background of Caroline's photo, I didn't realize I'd taken a closer up view that didn't show the two bases! Wonder why two?
RE: Elmira & Tola Stockdick Elmira's was one memorial that I duplicated the photo since I thought mine was more readable. It appears from one of the others that at one time her stone was sitting on a base and was much taller than it is now. Still a nice sized one, just a little hard to read the slightly indented lettering. Tola is on the same stone but on the north side and lettering is barely readable. North sides are always hard to get a good picture as the old stones have a tendency to discolor more. Did find the little one with his name on it that is readable. Enjoy!
RE: Fulfilled photo request You are more than welcome. I'm doing a lot of upgrading (adding family links) of memorials and adding pictures in Brushy Cemetery. I took pictures of the entire cemetery so it's taking some time to get thru all of them and trying not to duplicate anything that's already posted.
Samuel Kipp The date you posted for Samuel Kipp's birth differs from what is on the headstone. His memorial number is 95053863. His death certificate says he was born in 1957 in Dresden, Ohio. Could you please change your date from 1958 to 1957? Thank you.
