Bio Photo Dear Ancestor

"Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled 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 and blood and 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 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

George V Hecker bought the plot on 9/3/1854 and the last person to be buried in the plot was buried in 1945. I am told 15 people in total occupy the plot.

Thank you for adding Martin to Find A Grave. He is my grandfather that I never knew. And my grand uncles. Their father Michael is buried there as well. Thank you very much.

I have many relations named Moore but cannot link this group of Moore's to the ones in Missouri.
Thanks for your input.

Polly P. Wheeler Fessenden

I added the marriage place for Edward D. Fessenden and Polly P. Wheeler Fessenden. I also changed her name to Pauline P. through the Edit although the record I have has Polly P.

If you are a relative, please let me know. Perhaps you know more about her.
