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. Kathy
"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
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
RE: James E. Chase #29985794 Kathy, 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 Chuck Davis email@example.com
RE: James E. Chase #29985794 Kathy, 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 Chuck email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so we dont have to work through find a grave.
RE: Sarah Jane (Hicks) Blackstone #155510494 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.
William Thomas V. Blackstone 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.
William Thomas V. Blackstone 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.
