My grandmother, Wanda Zirkle Jilka, and great-aunt, Veda Zirkle Vickery, compiled a book commonly referred to as "The Red Book," "Zirkle Branches 1725-1978, Yesteryears and Yesterdays." There are several copies for sale if anyone is interested. It mainly outlines the history of two Zirkle/Zerkel branches which left VA, went to OH, then settled in Richland, Shawnee Co, KS.

"Life is not separate from death. It only looks that way." Blackfoot Quote

"A Visit to the Gravesite"

Dear Ancestor,
Your Tombstone stands among the rest,
Neglected and alone.
The name and dates are chiseled here,
On polished marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care,
Though 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,
I wonder if you could have known,
Would spread among the ones you left
In all the seeds you've sown.
I wonder how you lived and loved?
I wonder if you ever knew?
That someday I would find you in this spot,
And come to visit you?

RE: Thanks so much

RE: Memorial # 86472825
His grave is in the Captain William Moore Cemetery in Mattie aka Blaine, Kentucky on the old Moore Farm Homestead. Here is the link to the cemetery page:
The correct information and memorial is: Memorial# 104139258.
This person plus a lot of cousins help take care of the cemetery and does the family genealogy for that side with help from us fairly new cousins in genealogy, like me.

Double Grave?
Becky... I can't make it out memorial 30078038 but is there another death date below "infant son." Also with my transfers today you might want to check any possible duplicates... Good Luck

I should have asked - where are Felix Emil and Pedro Thedore buried so I can connect them to Emilie.

I have a lot of info on his Civil War service on my tree if you are interested. His two sons enlisted at the same time. I have some of their records.

Peter Thadddaus Heldt

Are you connected to the Held family? This Peter was my adopted Grandmother's grandfather whom she never knew about. Her father always told her he had come to America with a brother and a sister and had left their parents in Germany. I have done this research on the family for my precious Grandmother. I just wish I had done it while she was alive.
