Dear Ancestor

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
In this field of green.
The name and date are chiseled out
For all the world to see.

It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I'd exist,
You died long before I was born.

Yet we are of one, you and I,
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.

Dear Ancestor, the life you lived
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.

Arvel Barnes
Hi, Wylie.

I have been trying to confirm the year that Arvel was born. He always thought he was born in 1924, but census records, marriage records, etc., all indicate 1925. Would you please edit his memorial to reflect 1925. For sure, it wasn't 1927.

Thank you.

Re: the siblings list. I have a picture taken 10-15-1939 at Henry's house indicating the last time all the brothers may have been pictured together.

Shows 6 men.

The Find A Grave sibling list does not have Joe Roberts linked.

Pictures and other documents

I am a grandson of Henry and Lois Roberts. I just added a profile for my grandmother Roberts (aka the Tickle Bug). I have also posted some pictures.

I have a number of pictures and documents with Blackwell info. I also have notes my mother collected on the Blackwell and Roberts family. If you are interesst in it let me know.

Please review the additions that I have made. With respect to the obit on Henry. I will convert that to text. This also shows family members of Henry and Lois.

My younger brother was named after Henry and a son of Uncle Floyd and Aunt Igy's - Randolph (Cousin Randy - have pictures of him).

Cousin Randy and my mother lived next door to one another and went to Virginia High School together.
