My husband, Mac, and I have taken on this project to try and help others see the final resting places of their loved ones. I enjoy genealogy research, and have been helped by FAG volunteers filling my requests for photos, therefore we thought this would be a good way to "pay it forward". If anyone has additional information to add or corrections that should be made to these memorials, please let me know. |
You are more than welcome to use photos that we've made and added to FAG however, we would ask that you give us credit by adding the following information:
Find A Grave volunteer: Hancock #47167004.
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."
"A FAMILY TREE CAN WITHER IF NOBODY TENDS ITS ROOTS".

Since there were no dates on the infant's stone I did not realize they were the same. I do not have control over that memorial anymore since I sent it to you.
|Nancy Cornelius||RE: Tidmore Infants at Copeland Bridge|
There are no dates, and the inscription says.... Infant of J. W. and M. S. Tidmore. It looks like the same tombstone was cut 5 different times. I know you have the first 4 and thought you might want this 5th one. Thanks
|Nancy Cornelius||Traffanstedt at Copeland Bridge|
Found a Charles Lamar infant son of Lamar Traffanstedt that had not been added. Will do so and if connected and want let me know.
|Nancy Cornelius||Tidmore at Copeland Bridge|
Sorry it was JE Tidmore.
|Nancy Cornelius||Tidmore infants at Copeland Bridge|
I am working on surveying the cemetery with pictures. I have found these stones, but instead of there being 4 stones there are 5 infant stones. Will open the 5th and if you want to have it as well I will transfer it to you. Also found another sandstone with Tidmore on it who already has a memorial. Will post that pic too.... was some letters like ? SL Tidmore

This is my family, my first cousin, why would I not want his memorial? I would appreciate it if you would transfer it to me. Thanks again

Hi We spoke awhile back and you transferred my great grandmother memorial to me. I have found out her son Willie Rycroft is buried next to her. He died at age 17 of typhoid fever. I would like to request a photo if you live near by.
