"Dear Ancestor"

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.

It reaches out to all who care
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.

Hi, Bobby,

You took a photo, but there is no memorial for the husband, Nathan. His wife, Zella has a photo though. I put in a photo request. His dates are complete. Would you please respond to that request with his photo from her grave? I didn't want to snitch it from you!

His: 174338862

Thanks much. You did a lot of work here. Much obliged!

Betsy Cloud Jett
Her marker reads Mrs Newton Jett nee Betsy Cloud. The nee merely means that Betsy Cloud is her birth name. It's not actually part of the name itself.

Greenfield, Sarah Ann - Burial Location?
Hello, I came across your request for a photo of her memorial with the notation that they couldn't find a record of her buried in the cemetery she is listed under. So I did a little research. Ancestry has a record of her being in the cemetery listed below. Also, I believe her husband Cyrus is also buried in the cemetery. I hope this information is helpful and correct. Best regards.

Cyrus Greenfield - Memorial #44731929

Name: Sarah Ann Greenfield
Birth Date: 1853
Death Date: 13 Dec 1929
Age: 76
Burial Location: Douds, Van Buren
CEMETERY: Zion Lutheran
