When my soul is restless
And things seem out of line,
I visit an old graveyard
To take a mystical step back in time.

I find the oldest tombstones
Then read the messages there;
I consider what their days had been
And how our lives in ways compare.

We all have lived though heartaches
As well as episodes of fun;
Surviving loss of loved ones,
And rewarded for a job well done.

Sometimes if I'm very still
I can hear what they have to say
And feel them reaching out to me
Grateful for my momentary stay.

Kate, everywhere I look on Findagrave, I see one of your memorials and grave photo which you have taken.
You certainly are prolific and much appreciated.

Dear Katie,
I know his death certificate says his mothers last name is Kitchen but that was his Grandmothers. Her name is Mariam Killian. I have attached their memorials to his grave. Any questions don't hesitate to contact me. 208-771-6288.

I don't know why some of the memorials are not showing up in cemeteries that I put them in. If you look closer a sister, Laura is now a duplicate as well. URGHH... I will just read them to the cemetery and if you would be so kind to delete yours I would appreciate it. Pat

Francis C Plott - Dellwood - Haywood Co NC
Hi Kate:

I really appreciate your grave marker photo for Francis C Plott - wife of Amos Plott in the Dellwood Cemetery in Haywood County, North Carolina. Her findagrave memorial# 159159857 records her death date as 1816. I am wondering if the "1" in "1816" is really a "4" as in "1846"? It's difficult to see details of older stones in photos as time/weather can erode the finer lines.

I don't know, of course, if you go over to that cemetery from time to time but if you do get there some time in the future - would you consider examining her grave marker closer to see if there are more lines/marks around the second "1" in "1816" to see if it could be a "4"?

Thank you for helping record these markers so many can discover their family. Best regards, Nancy

Hi Kate,
Thank you so much for all the connections that I have submitted to you lately. I know there will be more to come as I am working on the Cabe family for a friend. Thanks again and have a great week.
