Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have done family history research since the 1980s. The names I am working on are Abbey, Armstrong, Ronk, Marchael, Hudlow, Williams, Bilyeu, Robertson, Farnsworth, Strange, Younglove, Hutchins, Smith, Creason, Hall and many more.

I enjoy walking in the cemeteries to see who is there even if they are not my family.

"A Visit to the Gravesite"

Dear Ancestor,
Your Tombstone stands among the rest,
Neglected and alone.
The name and dates are chiseled here,
On polished marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care,
Though it is too late to mourn.
You do not know that I exist,
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you,
In flesh, in blood, and bone.
The place you filled so many years ago,
I wonder if you could have known,
Would spread among the ones you left
In all the seeds you've sown.
I wonder if you lived and loved?
I wonder if you ever knew?
That someday I would find you in this spot,
And come to visit you?

Elizabeth Armstrong
Hi Brenda,
Jacob Gins, husband of Elizabeth Armstrong was my gg-grandmother's brother. I have recently found some information on the family and found your post of the graves on Find-A-Grave. I was wondering if you had any information on their marriage, children etc.? I am also interested in any photos you might have of the grave markers. Is Elizabeth buried with Jacob or Christopher?
Thank you so much for any info you might have in advance.

Bob Bailey
