Bio Photo Find-a-Grave rocks!

EVERYONE, PLEASE STOP MAKING MEMORIALS ON FIND-A-GRAVE WITHOUT A GRAVE LOCATION. IT'S PRETTY SIMPLE. IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHERE SOMEONE IS BURIED YOU SHOULD NOT BE MAKING A MEMORIAL FOR THEM ON THIS WEBSITE. GO TO ANCESTRY.COM AND MAKE ENTRIES FOR ALL YOUR RELATIVES BACK TO THE CAVEMEN AND WOMEN. ALSO STOP ASKING ME TO LINK TO THESE MEMORIALS. I'VE HAD SEVERAL REQUESTS TO LINK TO PAGES THIS WEEK WITH JUST A NAME. NO DATES/LOCATIONS/NOTHING.

Please suggest a correction on a specific memorial using the Edit tabs. I welcome edits even if it's just a GPS, plot number, marker transcription or middle/maiden name etc. I like complete memorials.

-------------------------------
I've lived in Massachusetts my whole life. Since 1988 I've been interested in my genealogy. I'm 25% Scottish, 12.5% Irish but I mostly descend from English families who came here 300-400 years ago. My immigrant ancestor, with the same last name, came to Massachusetts in the 1630's from France supposedly. I don't consider my self French, however, because it was so long ago and his genes have been watered down so much over the past 400 years.

If I did not have to work I would grow a big bushy red beard and buy a house with a porch. On that porch I would rock back and forth in my rocking chair, sporting a bad-ass kilt whilst learning to play the bag pipes....until I gave up 10 minutes later from being terrible at it.

If I was retired I would definitely travel the great continental 48 states in an RV searching out the historic landmarks of the USA. Revolutionary and Civil War battlefields would be on the list of places to visit. A 7th great-grandfather of mine was Gen. Artemas Ward (1727-1800.)

THE DOORS "The End"


Don't let me die in an automobile
I wanna lie in an open field
want the snakes to suck my skin
want the worms to be my friends
want the birds to eat my eye
as here I lie
the clouds fly by

-------------------------
Let me know if you need a transfer if you can add more bio info. Hope everyone gets out there and photographs some stones - that is the main reason this site exists. Thanks.

***SORRY, I DO NOT LINK TO RELATIVES THAT DO NOT HAVE A BURIAL LOCATION. This is Find-a-GRAVE after all. There are some exceptions of course: scattered ashes and the like, but even then, there could be a headstone somewhere.***

Found this inscribed on a stone in Warwick, Ma.:


"Low in the ground my bed is made,
here in the dark alone I'm laid.
Depart my friends and let me rest,
I'm weary of this wilderness."


Found this on a find-a-grave profile:

Old Bones' profile poem"

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 if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.
