|Bio and Links|
In my youth, I lived in a small town in northern Indiana. One of the places we played was in the local cemetery. I become fascinated with the headstones and wondered what the people under the stone were like.|
As a retired phone man, I put that fascination and my love of photography to work.
I'm not into the numbers game. I take time and try to find some facts on the person I'm writing about. Feel free to use my photos and my writings if it helps you find your past, as long as its not for profit. If I can help you in any way, drop me a line. Additions and corrections are welcome.
I'm sorry, I don't work well with rude or pushy people. If you don't receive an answer to your request right away, think about it, and try again.
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.

I would love if you could add me, Sierra Marie Wall of Ridgway Pa as his sister and his real mother Karen Marie Wall, of Ridgway Pa to his survivors. My brother was taken from my mom by his dad Tracy at a young age, but he's still her son and my brother. We would appreciate it so much! Thank you for taking time to read this(:

Hi Mike - I got a correction from a lady on Martha's last name. I thought I got a request from you not that long ago saying she was your 2nd grade teacher but I can't remember if you wanted the a or the I. Carol

Hello. I see that you posted an obituary in 2013 for Doris Barrows. I think that she was my great aunt. If you can suggest and/or help with any connections here, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!
|Gayle Bower||Wendy Lynn Hart|
Mike, I have been looking for my younger sister Wendy Lynn Hart for many years. I am so sad to find that she has passed away according to this site. She was so young and beautiful.....we had the same father and I was 30 years older than her. I would love to find out what happened to her, but don't even know where to start looking. Any ideas or suggestion would be appreciated. Thank you so much
