Researching and documenting my family history and that of my husband's for 40 years. |
Family surnames: Snyder / Enright / Duffy / Mackie / Philipps / Callaghan / Conneally / McLaughlin /Quinn / Nolan / Fischli / Tobin / Normile.
I am recording our local Maplewood Cemetery, but it's taking time, as you can imagine. My son recorded Weeks' Cemetery for his Eagle project here in our town also.Glad for edits, corrections, additional info.
You may use my photos without asking permission. No problem at all. Have a blessed day!
Ode to Maplewood Cemetery
By Emily C.A. Snyder, 2014:
There’s a stone by my front porch
Shaded by the maple bough
That asks one simple question:
Not who or when – but “Howe?”
Who lies beneath this marker?
When did he pass away?
Was this a him or her—
Or a family of “they?”
What was the man’s profession?
If only someone knew--?
But that is now a “Howe,”
And here’s no hint of “Who.”
What joys, perchance, were hers
That she savoured in her Then,
But How will neither speak of Whom
Much less to answer: “When.”
And whom did this Howe love?
Did she accept his solemn vow?
What wars disturbed their slumber,
As their name disturbs me now?
Stranger graves than this
Have laid their secrets bare
Disclosing who and when—
And better yet still!—Where.
“Why” is often hid from me
Although I sometimes guess
And whisper my conjecture
Over those who’ve gone to rest.
But I am restless, I am restless,
I can’t unknit my brow:
As I look out to the Maplewood
And wonder: “Howe, Howe, Howe!”
So here’s what I will do
(And they can’t stop me anyhow!):
I shall say that they were happy
And it doesn’t matter Howe. ________________________________________

Thank you very much for photographing the gravesite of George Spearel at Maplewood Cemetery.
You are quite welcome. I love having memorials go where they will be cared for.

Hi Chris - Tx for pointing out the error in Margot Hardart Curran's memorial. Marogt's husband John and my father were 1st cousins. Their mothers were O'Keefe sisters, Frances O'Keefe Curran and Loretto O'Keefe Sullivan. We only knew of our Curran Cousins from stories and only recently connected with them - great people!! Tx again - Mike

Just a note to let you know your Genealogy Work is appreciated. Nice documentation on Cotting Genealogy!
|Marilyn Sommers Neal||RE: Wallace, Nebraska|
Thanks! I am good friends with Patricia O'Connor who is Peg's sister. I will check with the cemetery when I am in Wallace again or I will contact findagrave. It just seemed odd to me that there would be a memorial but no listing. I am new with this site so I do appreciate your feedback.
|Marilyn Sommers Neal||no listing|
You are managing 97166722 in Morning View cemetery in Wallace, Nebraska. When trying to find her husband 63982377 in the same cemetery it was not listed. I know you are not managing his memorial and the person that is does not receive messages. Would you know why he is not listed. I found him by going through your memorial only. I do know he is her husband but wondered why is not listed? Thanks for any information you can help me with.
Some additional information - the 1910 census mentioned in your documentation has 2 children listed. The GRACE M. DORR, age 12, listed is actually the daughter of Frank A Dorr, Grace Dorr Childs' brother. The younger Grace was my paternal grandmother!

You're most welcome!

Hi and thank you for letting me know about the duplicate. That page was transcribed by another user and it probably wasn't flagged as a duplicate because of the difference in the birthdate. I have deleted it.
