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~

Isaac again
Yes it looks like 1872. There is no YOB on the stone.

Hi - I have corrected Isaac's memorial as per your suggestion. I can only imagine that someone suggested it and I didn't read the memorial before adding it, since I clearly have written who his father was! Oh boy, I have to be more careful. I am glad you caught that.

As a relative would you know if Samuel C. was also married to Beulah?

Thanks again.

Ellen, We have created a facebook group for us FindaGrave volunteers in Westchester . We can coordinate our efforts, share ideas, participate in group outings which are fun-meet at a diner or coffee shop. We recently got together to photograph the Loyola Seminary Cemetery in Shrub Oak which had gone unnoticed and met for breakfast

Changed her name to Gray on the memorial and added her parent's names in the bio section. Her mother was a Reynolds. Thanks for your help.
