Two Poems,
In each family there is one who seems to be called to find the Ancestors.To put flesh on their bones and make them Live again,to tell the Family Story and to feel that somehow they know and approve.Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but,instead,breathing life into all who have gone on before. We are the Storytellers of the Tribe. All tribes have one.We have been called,as it were by our genes.Those who have gone before cry out to us "Tell our Story" ! So,we do.In finding them,we somehow find ourselves.
^^^^first part of said poem,
- Author UNKNOWN
Dear Ancestor
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiselled out
on polished, marble 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 if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

One of my findagrave friends,whom I chanted with early on here on Findagrave is Love Mo~Proverbs 3:5&6
Please feel free to give her some pretty flowers!

Shirley Hallahan... a redo
I have thought of your Mom over the years... My name is Kelly Wiley... I was the manager of Whataburger and we were friends for a very long time. I thought of this Awesome Lady and I wondered how she was doing... Today I searched the internet and found this...This is what I put on my fb page... So; so; sad... Shirley and I were friends for years. I met her at Golden Corral; she trained me to do most of the jobs... I left and a few years later; she came in as a customer at Whataburger in Clute. We hugged; and I asked her if
she wanted to work for me.. She could do anything that she felt she could handle; like a door greater or cleaning tables; etc... She took the job and she became the best cook ever...Months later; I got a promotion to go to the Lake Jackson Whataburger.... I said yes with one condition; and that was to take Shirley with me.. She was the only employee I was allowed to take but that was enough for me... I left town and I havent heard from her in years... But I Loved this lady like a mother... Goodbye Shirley; I know we will see each again one day.A friend by the name of Linda said she was her neighbor when she was a child in san sabre. She said she really loved her and shirley kept in touch over the years. That was so amazing. It is such a little world.. I am so sorry for your loss...

Hopkins family
Hi Peanut,

Your ancestor Isaac Hopkins is a brother of my 4G-grandfather, James Hopkins. Based on my research, I believe them to be the sons of Noah Hopkins and Mary Hammon. They are both mentioned in the will of their father, along with other siblings. If you are interested in the info I have on the family, I would be happy to communicate with you via email. Here is my email: s.

RE: been awhile
Happy New Year.
Hope all is well your way. I am currently in Mississippi, hopefully it's temporary. I've not been researching, been doing GrandM'ma duty. I've got a 1yr & 2mth old grandbabies. Also, I've been sharpening my Crochet skills. I've added to FG here n there, lost my Dad in November, and a few more in 2016. It's been a rough year.
Here's hoping this year will be easier on everyone. :)

I found a picture in my dads belongings. I would like to send it to you, the notation on the back says, James M Doss KIA Guam 1944. It is a picture of the 2 of them in uniform taken in a photo booth.

My dad passed away 3/5/2016 and this weekend his ashes were approved for inurnment in Arlington National Cemetery July 19 2016.

Hello Family
Hi Peanut,

Daniel Billinghurst is my great great grandfather. I saw that he is your great great great grandfather. My great grandfather left Albion and moved to Cincinnati, Ohio, where our family has stayed for generations. I just wanted to say hi. :)

So I joined Find A Grave so I could send you a message.

RE: Wolcott
Hi Peanut,

The picture of the headstone belongs to
Flora (Comstock) Wolcott.

She was born Flora Comstock (not Florilla) on Oct. 31, 1843
and died on Mar. 15, 1923.

She was the daughter of Jude and Mary Rachel (Wilson) Comstock and she married Ludwig J Wolcott.

I did not find any record of a marriage between Flora (Comstock) Wolcoott and a Jenkins anywhere at all.

There is another memorial on Find A Grave for her, it's memorial number 8089117 and, although that one also says Flora was married to a Jenkins, I still don't believe it's accurate.

You should contact the other memorial holder and work out an equitable solution to merge the two memorials or some other plan but there should only be one accurate memorial for everyone.

And, there is the other Flora Comstock.

She was born Florilla Jenkins and she married Julius Comstock. Her memorial is 59016291

She was born and died at least twenty years prior to this Flora and the two women have nothing to do with each other.

Hope that helps clear the air :)
