Unknown we are to each other...through time our paths have crossed...so as we visit one to another...know as family you shall never be lost.

I consider Cemeteries to be outdoor museums.
I am proud to be referred to as "The Family Historian."


THE CEMETERY PHOTOGRAPHER

Wandering among the stones I see
The stones so weathered and worn
‘Tis difficult to find the date
On which the babe was born

I stare at the stone and am struck with awe
At the life that I knew was gone
This was someone's child, a babe so sweet
With loved ones to carry on

So I take a photo for all to see
For the family that remains
An everlasting memory of
A child of God's domain

I brush the weeds back from the stone
And say a silent prayer
For the babes that had no chance to live
And for mothers everywhere

The dove calls out it's mourning song
Among the stones so still
Echoes of the woes, through time
The choirs of despair

The stone will someday perish
The flowers will be gone
But a photo now remains of this
Their memory lives on!

And so my friend, don't hesitate
To film the weathered stone
Those who live within your hearts
Are never truly gone.

I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. 2 Timothy 4:7

Take Care
Sorry to hear that you were affected by the wildfires in California, but am happy that you are safe and that your cats were okay. Watching the fires on TV is scary enough, I cannot imagine being that close. Take care.

RE: Birthday
Unfortunately, my broken finger is in a splint making it difficult to type. I requested flowers and found the date in the email and online, both of which say September 26th. Not sure what you're referring to?
Thank you,
Cindy

Grave 'not found'? - for photo request
Thank you for the transfer of my grandmother's grave to me. Today, I received this from another contributor...

"I searched the entire cemetery and could not find the grave. 4 people have walked this cemetery, including myself and we never found a headstone. I hope someone else can find a headstone for her. Good luck."

Can you give me any insight into this? If her grave is NOT marked(but exists there)I would like to buy/install a marker for her. Thanx for your assistance!

Received your note and attempted to reply but your comcast account doesn't work.

"Note: Field survey. Not here at Rockville Cemetery. Ashes probably with 2nd wife Hedwig Lillis."

Hi,

I didn't list a cemetery and I am unclear what needs to be changed. Please get back to me and I will be happy to make changes.

Thanks

McFarland family
You have Leven McFarland being born after his mother's death (1770 vs 1765). Do you have any documentation of either of these? You also have three brothers born in 1765, Charles being one. Again, can you document this. Census records indicate a Charles McFarland born between 1766 and 1784 (1810), 1776 and 1794 (1820), 1781 and 1790 (1830) and 1781 and 1790 (1840). Charles was my wife's 3rd gr-grandfather and died in 1847. You can find his will on my family tree on ancestry.com. Any info will be greatly appreciated. Ken Buttry

RE: Zelda McFarland
Hi,

Zella was my 1st cousin (2x removed). I've turned over the memorial to you as the closer relative. You may have noticed I also found the locations of other siblings of hers that you've been looking for and connected them to Elmore and Harriett. I'm still working to find Myrtle's grave.

RE: Mary Adams Brainard
Thanks. After I emailed you, I did find The Adams Family Association webpage which gives the same info you just sent. I think the Kansas and Indiana locations are very close to one another.

RE: Tennessee W Brennan Chinn
Thank you for your reply. I either "mis-typed" or spell check popped in. The last name of her father is Drennan with a 'D'.
