Bio and Links
I'm a 66yr. old Wife, Mom, Grandmother & a Navy Veteran. I have over 45 yrs. of experience as a Domestic Engineer. My husband & I wish You All Fair Winds and Following seas. We hope you take to heart the following poem for it says it all, to all who are connecting to our past.

"Dear Ancestor"
Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone
The name & date are chiseled out
On polishd marble 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 did set up the memorial but it was transferred to another individual at some point. Sorry.

Oldright Family
Hi Kathy, I've noticed your name on several items relating to the Oldright surname. Could you please tell me what your relationship is to this family? I've researched the Oldrights for almost 30 years and I am sure I can help you with any questions you might have. Judy

Send me your regular email address please. I have a couple of scanned Obits for you and a picture of another plot in Denny cemetery that is assigned to James Chase. The location is quite a ways away from the Headstone that I sent you a picture of.
Thank you

I can go to the historical society next Saturday when they are open and do some searching for you. If you send what info you have birth deaths and marriages along with the names Ill see what I can find out. All three graves were side by side and they were listed together. Is it possible that this is not the right James Chase? Do you know the parents names? If you have a closer date of death other than the year I could go through to old newspapers and see what the obit says.
Thank you
email me at so we dont have to work through find a grave.

Yes, I can do that sometime in the next week or two, probably. It's an hour away, but not a problem to go back there again.

Yes, Kerry Rae is a woman. No doubt the Blackstones are buried there, but just can't find a marker for them in that plot. Good that you have the funeral home records to confirm their burial locations. Glad to help look for them.

Did you see the note on his memorial for family member to conact the funeral home? They are looking for closest living family member, in order to buy back unused plots that were sold years ago.

Funeral home record states he died at the hospital. Which was in Colfax.

Thanks for the info Kathy. It is posted. The cemetery records and wood markers were destroyed in 1926 by a wildland fire. We shot pics of every burial record at the funerel home from 1873-1926 in order to piece it back together. Without that funeral home record, we would not have known he is buried there.
