DEAR ANCESTOR

YOUR TOMBSTONE STANDS AMONG THE REST;
NEGLECTED AND ALONE
THE NAME AND DATE ARE CHISELED OUT
ON POLISHED MARBLE STONE

IT REACHES OUT TO ALL WHO CARE
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, 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?

This is a relative of mine, I posted for a name change at the time believing she must have married twice however in checking my records I do not believe she was ever a Conner her Maiden name was Cannon and her mother and father are listed in her flowers it wouldn't let me send it the other way after I had put in for the name change. If you are related I wouold love to speak with you about her line. If not I hope I am not bothering you to much.

RE: you and I are probably NOT kin
Thank you for your reply and thorough explanation of this error. The Pennocks and Seeleys are kindred through the conjoining of Margaret Seeley and James Pennock only. I'll rectify my genealogical errors. I had a Keziah Pennock as one of the oldest children of James and Margaret. That is probably in error. I'll research it.

Hi Ms Taglavore: Elihu Northrup was married to a great aunt of mine of several generations ago. Her name was Keziah Seeley; her birth name was Keziah Pennock but she changed it to her mother's maiden surname Seeley during or after the Revolutionary War. Her parents were Loyalists during that war. Her father James was killed at Bemis Heights, Battle of Saratoga NY along with two of his Pennock brothers. My Pennock ancestor, James' and Margaret Seeley Pennock's 18 year old son and Keziah's brother, was with his father at his battlefield death. This may be old information to you, however.

Mt Carmel Cemetery-Paola Valenti gravesite
Hi Michelle-I filled your request for Paola Valenti. She is buried in an unmarked grave. On the picture I indicated the location of the grave with flowers and I did attach a GPS location to the memorial page...Mary
