Bio and Links
I live in western NE, Garden County. I would be willing to do research or take photos of local grave sites. Please feel free to use any photo I have taken for your personal use.

Dear Ancestor

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.

Sybil Murphy #76980159
I have doubts that Sybil Murphy #76980159 was the daughter of William Maps and Jane Highlands. William's will names eight children, including Sibbel and Thomas (#6447644), but Thomas's headstone says he was born Dec. 27, 1823. This date is not compatible with Sybil Murphy's birth date of Sep. 20, 1823.

RE: Elizabeth Norman Snow
Thank you for catching that. I double checked the info I had and it should be 1871. I mixed up the last two numbers and did not catch it. Thank you again for bring this to my attention.

Thanks for letting me know, because I didn't realize it, mainly because I didn't have burial information on her. I have messaged the person who has the other one and offered my picture of her as well as her obituary. Once he does that, I will be deleting mine.

Thanks again for letting me know.
