Bio Photo I am interested in researching JETT/GARRISON families mainly in Iowa/Tennessee/Kentucky/Oklahoma/Missouri/Arkansas/Texas and Virginia and GORVIN/ORGAN/MURPHY families


"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.

Shofner Cemetery
I've been working on a book about the Shofner Luther Cemeteries. Just thought I'd drop a note that you have a McQuillen but if you look closely at your photo. Its Newton McQuiddy Shofner son of WJ Shofner

Margaret GORVIN
I am originally from Oxford, Iowa. Whenever I get home I try to photograph more stones at the cemetery.

In another search for my own family I did find an obit for a Margaret Gorvin, published in the Oxford Leader in 1920. She was born in Scotland in 1834 but moved to Belfast, Ireland as a child. She married James GORVIN. It says she died in Foster, NE at the home of her daughter Mrs. Margaret Plymesser.

Is this the person you are looking for a gravestone for?

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!
