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 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 as you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew;
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

RE: Photos
You are very welcome. I'm happy I was able to do it for you. This is a way I can pay back to those that have been creating memorials.

I also took Narvella Shires but for some reason I didn't ck to make sure I had it and only got the bottom of the monument, I'm hoping I can make it back this weekend. If I don't get it done by Saturday tho, it won't get done this weekend, they are calling for rain Sunday.

Hello Kay,
I have been searching for information on my family. I am a Bennett and Mary and Ephraim are my great, great, great grandparents. My dad and I have been looking for any information anyone may have for Ephraim.
Thank you!

Thanks so much for the information - great find! I've update her memorial to move her to the correct cemetery.

RE: Thank you,
I have sent you an email on findagrave about Mary C. Dodge Bennet.....I found her tombstone, but she is buried at a different cemetery than you have her listed in. I have created an additional memorial for her at Sapp Cemetery, but I will delete it when you move your memorial from New Venable Cemetery to Sapp Cemetery.
I will happily transfer Holland Dodge to you, but I would prefer to wait until I get his tombstone restored. Sapp Cemetery is a huge undertaking, and I upload photos and add info during the restoration process-it helps me keep track of my progress. I had been searching for his tombstone for TWO years!! I was also thrilled to find his siblings: Seabried Dodge, Mary C. Dodge Bennett and Mary's daughter Effie buried near him - they weren't on any of the old cemetery records for the cemetery. I hope to find many more! If you want more photos of their final resting places, please send me your email address and I will send them to you with details.
