Please feel free to contact me about any graves I have listed. If I have listed someone that you are related to and I am not and you would like them transferred to you, please just let me know. If we are both related then I will have to think about it. Please feel free to use any of my photo's anywhere you want.

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
(rev 21:4)

"Dear Ancestor
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and the date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who cares
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."
-Poem by Walter Butler Palmer


A limb has fallen from the family tree.
I keep hearing a voice that says, "Grieve not for me.
Remember the best times, the laughter, the song.
The good life I lived while I was strong.
Continue my heritage, I'm counting on you.
Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through.
My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest.
Remembering all, how I truly was blessed.
Continue traditions, no matter how small.
Go on with your life, don't worry about falls
I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin.
Until the day comes we're together again.

RE: Clarcy Virginia Chewning garrison
The obituary listed his mother and I just started digging in the records. To me it is is like working giant cross word puzzles.

Hi Barbara, just wanted to let you know I processed your edit for grave location. The "bird bath" is no longer at the cemetery and just wanted to make sure you knew that

RE: Martha J Gray Carroll
Hi Barbara, My bad, You are absolutely correct. I've been working on trying to get rid of the tons of duplicate entries in this cemetery. I got my notes bas-ackwards. Keep up the good work of preserving the headstone documentation for future generations.

RE: Mevin Charles Edwards
You are very welcome. I created a memorial for his wife Ruth so I could post her pictures as well. If you know her middle and/or maiden name, you are welcome to add the information.
Thank you,

RE: Alma Irene Hankins # 18632469
Ok obit for Grace Verna can be found!/Obituary It has Alma as preceding her in death and sister Alice Maire (which was Marie when I got the info and the name Alice was not mentioned) It has Roger listed as brother and married to Gwen.

RE: Alma Irene Hankins # 18632469
I moved her to same cemetery as her parents. I went looking to see where I found it when I posted the information and the Bristol Herald Courier obit from Legacy. com is not there anymore. I will continue to do research and try to find an answer for you.
