Bio Photo 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 sun 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 - 1932
My goal is not to have great numbers of memorials but rather great numbers of photos posted to aid those researching their families. So if I have a memorial that is related to your family, please request a transfer. Families should be together.

Families I'm researching include:

RE: Robert Lloyd and others in the Salvation Army plot
Thank you for your reply. I can wait. Some years ago I learned that a genealogist has to be patient. Things have changed since then, but that idea still comes in very handy.

Again, I really do appreciate your efforts.

Robert Lloyd and others in the Salvation Army plot
Thank you so very much for adding to the memorial page of Robert Lloyd. Also, I very much appreciate your planned efforts to record the others buried in the Salvation Army plot.

James E. Friel
Thanks so much for doing this.

My search on behalf of my family for the fate of my great-uncle has been particularly challenging (multiple marriages, no contact with his surviving sisters, distance from the rest of the family, etc.). This sad ending to his life is one more piece to his puzzle. The names of others buried nearby may provide some more "clues."

Do you happen to know any background on how plots were allocated in this era? With so many unmarked graves, might this have been a pauper, criminal, or other special area?

Feel free to reach me directly at

William Matthews
The William Matthews memorial that you told me to delete was in Co C the 24th US Infantry. The other William H. Matthews was in Co C the 42nd ILL Infantry, different headstones, different infantries, different names.

RE: William Chittenden
Thank you for your efforts, and for taking the lot/plot photo. I was hoping there would be evidence of how William's middle name is spelled.
Do you happen to have access to any records that might clear up the spelling? William (Stitwell or Stillwell) Chittenden.
Thanks a bunch.

RE: Your Sac City Cemetery Memorial

James T. Nelson
"Thank You" so much for the wonderful photo to add to the family tree. I put a photo request in for his wife over at St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery last week. No one knows why James and her are buried in different cemetery's. I'm wondering if you could do me a favor the next time your at your local library and have a spare moment and look up his wife obit.

Thanks again Larry O.
