Bio Photo DEAR ANCESTOR,

YOUR GRAVESTONE
STANDS AMONG THE REST,
FORGOTTEN AND FORLORN.
YOUR NAME AND DATE ARE CHISELED OUT,
ON SLATE OR OLD LIMESTONE,
IT REACHES OUT TO ALL WHO CARE,
IT'S NOT TOO LATE TO MOURN.
YOU DID NOT KNOW THAT I EXIST,
YOU DIED BEFORE I WAS BORN.
YET, EACH OF US ARE CELLS OF YOU,
OF FLESH AND BLOOD AND BONE
OUR HEART CONTRACTS AND BEATS A PULSE,ENTIRELY NOT OUR OWN.

DEAR ANCESTOR, THE PLACE YOU FILLED,
SO MANY YEARS AGO,
SPREAD OUT AMONG THE ONES YOU LEFT,
WHO WOULD HAVE LOVED YOU SO.
I KNOW THAT YOU LIVED AND LOVED,
BUT, I WONDER IF YOU KNEW,
SOMEDAY I WOULD FIND THIS SPOT,
AND COME TO VISIT YOU.

Hello Roberta,
You placed info on Wilber Fuller in 2008. You noted that his parents were Ira and Emma Fuller. Do you happen to know where they are buried?
Thank you for your time and kind assistance.

I see that you claimed a few of my photo requests. Were you able to find their headstones and photograph them?

Cloie Owen Herron
Thank you for your suggestions on how to clear this up about Cloie Herron. Jefferson Owen was survived by 4 sons and 2 daughters but he had 16 children and Cloie was one of them. I found her marriage license that was issued in Noble Co to James Monroe Herron with Jefferson Owen listed as her father. I also found her death certificate. It listed Mt. Pleasant cemetery as the place of burial and I can't find any other records for that. She had a daughter that died young and her death certificate list Mt. Pleasant as the burial place for her. Again, I can't find any record of that. I find nothing on where her husband James Monroe Herron is buried. I will keep looking for more information on this. I will remove her memorial until I can find more accurate information.
