"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 did 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.
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."

~Walter Butler Palmer

'We Rise Again'
Song sung by the Rankin Family:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aek5Dyi72r8&index=6&list=PLqq21Gyf-0kslWa6g_dhtO0woIC40qf85

"When the waves roll on over the waters
And the ocean cries
We look to our sons and daughters
To explain our lives
As if a child could tell us why
That as sure as the sunrise
As sure as the sea
As sure as the wind in the trees
We rise again in the faces of our children
We rise again in the voices of our song
We rise again in the waves out on the ocean
And then we rise again
When the light goes dark with the forces of creation
Across a stormy sky
We look to reincarnation to explain our lives
As if a child could tell us why
That as sure as the sunrise
As sure as the sea
As sure as the wind in the trees
We rise again in the faces of our children
We rise again in the voices of our song
We rise again in the waves out on the ocean
And then we rise again
We rise again in the faces of our children
We rise again in the voices of our song
We rise again in the waves out on the ocean
And then we rise again"


Those we have held in our arms for a little while, we hold in our hearts forever.

Thank you so much for the link to additional info on him. It is my understanding that we are not supposed to put url links in the bio.
After reading that article, I don't see that there is any more that I could say to what I already have. I do appreciate your contacting me. This is the kind of help we should all be giving on Find A Grave. Very humbled by this.

Many, many thanks for taking the time to visit Peoples Cemetery and for taking the photograph of her headstone. She is the mother of Joseph C. Shepherd also buried in this cemetery. Both died way too young, but they are not forgotten.

Hi Elizabeth,
I rechecked the death certificates for the children who are linked. The birth and death dates I have listed are correct if the death certificates are correct. I realize that they differ from the stone. I have changed FG from Loda to Lota because I believe that to be correct although the death certificate is filed as Loda. Mary Jane Wilson Gebhart is filed under Gibhart. I assume she died when her son Lloyd was born. All of the children who are currently linked to Melissa died before Melissa. Those listed in the obit in the bio were still alive at that time. I hope that helps.

It's no problem! I hope Find a Grave is able to make the correction that the cemetery is also known as Irwin Union so others don't get confused.

You have Peter in a duplicate cemetery. He should be in Union Cemetery. Here's a link to the right cemetery: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&GSvcid=235493&CRid=46510&pt=Union%20Cemetery&

You may need to copy and paste the link in your web browser.

RE: Memorial Transfers
I haven't been to any of the cemeteries that you adopted. If you find that I am in error, I will be happy to make the transfers.
