Bio and Links
Bio Photo I became interested in 'find a grave ' while looking into the history of my family. It has led me to visit several of the small family cemeteries in the Eastern Kentucky County where my early ancestors came in the late 1700's. So many stories and history just waiting to be learned and shared.

Dear Ancestor,
Your tombstone stands among the rest,
neglected and alone.
The name and date are chisiled out,
on polished marble stone.

It reaches out to all who care,
it is not 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 and blood and bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse,
entirely not out 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 how you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew.
That someday I would find this spot
and come to visit you.

Walter Butler Palmer

Asa Templeman
Good evening, I am not sure if you can help me in any way. I am looking for my moms mother. From the research we have done Asa was her father but I see only one child is listed as his child. You don't happen to be related to Asa? And could help us out any? Thank you.

RE: Arnold J. Steele
Thanks for your reply, can you tell me more about his marriage? I have a death certificate of a young boy who drowned in 1944. I believe that he was given up or maybe even abandoned by his parents (Arnold Steele and Mary Catherine Hamilton) and raise by his grandmother (my 3x Great grandmother.)

I'm not sure if this is the right Arnold Steele or not. He was born in West Virginia and his family moved to Indiana. in the 1930's census he was living near Mary so it makes me wonder if he is the father.

Thank You

Arnold J. Steele
Hello Gary,

I was wondering if you were related to Arnold J. Steele Memorial# 147524158 and if so if you could tell me anything about him. I am curious to see if he was the father of Charles Edward Steele.

Thank you

Gary, I don't want to be ugly about it, but When I duplicate one I Delete it. If I have Photos or info they don't have I offer it to them. If she want to put the Headstone photos on she can do that and she gets credit for them. Please don't think I'm ungrateful that you brought it to my attention. I went to her site and she has disabled her messages.

Please re-read his memorial - the information is correct. The Note: gives his wife's name, His parents name and His children's name. Think you just misread it.
