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.

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

Kay, You are very welcomed. You may use the photo I took of your Aunts head stone.
