Please feel free to contact me about any graves I have listed. If I have listed someone that you are related to and I am not and you would like them transferred to you, please just let me know. If we are both related then I will have to think about it. Please feel free to use any of my photo's anywhere you want.

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
(rev 21:4)

"Dear Ancestor
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."
-Poem by Walter Butler Palmer


A limb has fallen from the family tree.
I keep hearing a voice that says, "Grieve not for me.
Remember the best times, the laughter, the song.
The good life I lived while I was strong.
Continue my heritage, I'm counting on you.
Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through.
My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest.
Remembering all, how I truly was blessed.
Continue traditions, no matter how small.
Go on with your life, don't worry about falls
I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin.
Until the day comes we're together again.

RE: sponsored
Hi Barbara,

Yes I am related. I sponsored several this morning, so I'm not sure who you were inquiring about...

Most of them were my grandparents and great grandparents.

Thank you for asking! I didn't know they had a FIND A GRAVE until just a few years ago!

RE: Joseph Monroe Whitt
Yes, the headstone is really different. It is the coloring of the stone that makes it hard to get a good photo......Peggy

Forgot to ask, would you like me to transfer these two memorials to you? I am not related. :)

RE: Louisa Herring Miller # 127350122
Cemetery Record:
Birth: 4/25/1800 UNITED STATES
Death: 1/12/1886 SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH
Burial Information
Burial: 1/12/1886 Salt Lake City Cemetery, Salt Lake City, Salt Lake County, Utah, United States
Grave Location: H-9-2N2R-2E

I was just in that area a couple months ago. The road is H-9-2. There are two stones in this photo that I use as a Jumping off Point every time I am in this area, because it is NOT WELL Marked.
This Cemetery Usual plat layout is 10 spaces.
5 burials East side. 1E-2E-3E-4E-5E.
5 Burials West side.
Most of the time, the count starts on the South. There are exceptions but Most of the time.
The location South of Louisa's is H-9-2-#E or #W. All of H-9-2-EAST is double burial but one space shows empty. These are usually family plots, but this area I do not see a connection in the names.

The 2N2R-2E in Louisa's location means 2nd space east side of the H-9-2-North Rod. burial spaces, 3 on each side, 2E is center burial East side. 2W is a double burial.

"Rod" are sections not in the original lay out. They are laid out and named by the location they line North of or South of.

The section NORTH of Louisa is the same size
H-9-15-SR which is South Rod of H-9-15-.

When I asked I got no explanation WHY? Because the North and South Rods seem to me to have been added Early, by using the dates of those buried there.
Former Walkways and Roadways over the century has turned into burials. Sometime the RDWY abbreviation means it was added to the area along the road, just to Extend that area.

I king of have to make those with no stone my priority. Maybe there was a stone that fell with the weather, or was buried by gophers before i could get there. I tend to think, maybe there was no stone, because Daily Survival feeding the living took priority. I devour the names in these records and these maps and the stones in the location and it is overwhelming.
I have done so many of these searches that i am overlapping burials I met, when I was just finding my way. I have been in Every corner of the cemetery.
This gentleman i was talking to one evening, when he saw me wandering and asked why. He told me these stones are for the living. We come we cry, we pray, we remember. The wind, the rain, the snow, the frost, all turn that stone back into nature about the time the Kids, Grandkids, GreatGrandkids no longer NEED to visit, to cry, to pray, to remember.
Their concerns all left them, when they crossed. This eased my obsession slightly.
But I have never felt my Mom at her stone, more then I feel her on my shoulder every single day.
This is probably more then you ever wanted to know and I apologize.

RE: Cecil Monroe
Oops! Sorry Barbara, I have taken it down and will continue to look. I was in the Center Garden last night updating, I did note his marker was beside Phyllis and missed the DOB, assuming Augusta had not updated DOD.
Thanks for correcting me.

Ann Helton
Anna Belle Centers
Barbara: I received your suggestion to add Andrew Jackson Centers as Anna's father and "An Indian Woman" as her mother. Anna is my husband's great-grandmother. Do you have any documentation showing her parentage? Her funeral records show her father as Jack; mother unknown; and a living brother Joe.
