Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.
* Mary Elizabeth Frye

RE: Sara Seven
Would you mind deleting yours? Sandy Vandertol has added photos to mine, otherwise I would transfer to you as yours is older. We'll have to change your links as well. I owe you one! Judi

RE: Selleck Weed
It is my pleasure, if I can help anytime do not hesitate to ask. I have an ancestry account and newspaper archive account as well as I have been doing this for my own family for years. I am always happy to help someone else looking for clues.

Take care!

Henry Weed 116253961
Hi RLK, I was wondering if you were connected to this family as I found something that may give origin to the Weed family. I thought I would pass it along in case you did not see it.

WEED, Hon. Oscar, was born in Galen in 1822, a son of Henry, a native of Washington county, born in 1797, who was the son of Abram Weed, a native of Canaan, Conn., and an early settler in Washington county, where he engaged in the lumber business. He was killed in his saw-mill by a cake of ice falling on him. His wife was Sarah SELLECK, and their children were: Selleck, Abram, Henry, Hester, Sallie, Hannah, Betsey, and Nancy. Henry, father of our subject, moved to Wayne county in 1813, with his mother and sisters. His older brother, Selleck, had moved to Wayne county the previous year. He was a Republican and served as assessor and commissioner. He married Mahala KING, of Galen, and their children were: Samuel, who was a prominent physician in Clyde, Oscar, Abram, William, and Sarah Ann, wife of Oliver STRATTON, of Galen. Mr. Weed died ini 1862, and his wife in 1881. Our subject was educated at Clyde High School, and remained on the farm, teaching school winters for about nine years. In 1848 he married Rebecca, daughter of Joseph C., and Ruth WATSON, of Galen, and they had these children: Watson, Oscar D., Mary E. a teacher in Drew Ladies' Seminary, Carmel, N. Y., Gahardus and Ruth (both deceased). Mr. Weed moved in 1850 to Huron, and purchased the farm of 300 acres, where he has since resided, engaged in farming and fruit growing. In the latter he enjoys the reputation of being the most extensive and successful in the town, the proceeds for the year 1893 being about $6,500. He has served as assessor and supervisor several terms, and in 1881-82 was elected by the Republicans to the Assembly. Has also been delegate to many county and State conventions. His living children are all graduates of Cornell University. Mr. and Mrs. Weed are members of the Clyde Grange. His son, Watson, is a Unitarian minister in Scituate, Mass. Addison is in New Hartford, engaged in gardening, fruit growing and civil engineering. Oscar D., practising law in New York city.

Thank you for the information. I did not see her on any of the victims lists; I finally found her story mentioned in the Chicago Daily Tribune dated 1-12-1904. I appreciate you letting me know.

Bellevue photos- THANKS!
I can't thank you enough for all your help with cemetery pictures, and the kindness you have shown. I do appreciate all your work.
I live in North Carolina and a senior citizen, so that job would be very difficult for me.
Bless you!
