I've been working on my family history off and on for about 25 years now. I love contributing to this site and doing the genealogical research. |
I have contributed pictures and info that I have spent the time to research. If you use any of my the pictures or other information I have posted, please let me know or at least be courteous enough to acknowledge me as the source.
"A people that takes no pride in the noble achievements of remote ancestors will never achieve anything worthy to be remembered with pride by remote descendents." – Macauley.
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 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.

|Linda Morris Croy||Sarah B Elrod|
Do you know who Sarah B Abbott Elrod's (#8112101) parents are? I show two Sarah Abbotts and I am trying to figure out if they are they same person. The Olive Branch Cemetery book says Sarah B's parents are Wm Alonzo & Annabelle Jackson Abbott. In the census with parents Wm Alonzo & Anabelle Abbott, it lists her name as Sarah J Abbott. The Sarah Elrod in census' shown with her spouses show Sarah B. Both show the same birth year of 1884. Could you help me figure this out? Thanks.
