First of all, if you are looking for a family members grave and find a picture here, please contact me for permission to use it. Whether or not you were directed here by Ancestry or Billion graves.com. Please ask me first. Thank you|
Unknown we are to each other...through time our paths have crossed...so as we visit one to another...know as family you shall never be lost.
I consider Cemeteries to be outdoor museums.
I am proud to be referred to as "The Family Historian."
THE CEMETERY PHOTOGRAPHER
Wandering among the stones I see
The stones so weathered and worn
‘Tis difficult to find the date
On which the babe was born
I stare at the stone and am struck with awe
At the life that I knew was gone
This was someone's child, a babe so sweet
With loved ones to carry on
So I take a photo for all to see
For the family that remains
An everlasting memory of
A child of God's domain
I brush the weeds back from the stone
And say a silent prayer
For the babes that had no chance to live
And for mothers everywhere
The dove calls out it's mourning song
Among the stones so still
Echoes of the woes, through time
The choirs of despair
The stone will someday perish
The flowers will be gone
But a photo now remains of this
Their memory lives on!
And so my friend, don't hesitate
To film the weathered stone
Those who live within your hearts
Are never truly gone.
I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. 2 Timothy 4:7

|Barbara Liese||RE: Dean Lillis|
Dean was cremated and his son has not yet had his remains placed in a permanent location. It may ultimately be at the Rockville Pioneer Cemetery but at this time I am not certain.
|SWM||RE: Infants Clark|
I saw your notes on their unmarked grave: "I'm sorry. There isn't a headstone for these twins. It is unmarked." Dearly appreciate you looking just the same! Rella Clark isn't kin to me -- she was the housekeeper at my Grandmother's house (from the 1940 Census) -- so seeing these twins buried nearby her, according to the field survey, is just one more entirely new piece of info here. Anyway, maybe I can track down some kin who may indeed have some answers here. Thanks again so much for looking!! :-D

May I use the tombstone picture of Jasper Sheldon (d. 1877). He is my 3rd Great Grand Uncle. I will use it on my Genealogy website, and in my Ancestry file. I also am my family's historian/archivist.
