I consider the final resting places of those that came before us as hallowed ground. We owe it to them to protect these sites and preserve and honor their lives. If we lack compassion and caring for our dead, what kind of persons are we?
"To live in the hearts we leave behind is not to die." ~ Thomas Campbell
"One can tell the morals of a culture by the way they treat their dead." ~ Benjamin Franklin
Please visit the cemetery website that I created to preserve and honor the lives of my ancestors who lived near Irving, Illinois: http://mccordcemetery.irvingmuseum.org
If you have suggestions, additions, or family links you'd like added to a memorial site that I have created, I am happy to accommodate as long as you have documented proof of the data you wish for me to add or change. If not, please enter your comments in the comment portion of the memorial in order to get your information on the memorial site and that way you are the source. I am a stickler for documentation because I try very hard to present correct information and the source of it for researchers rather than have undocumented information floating around the Internet from my contributions here at Find-A-Grave. Thanks for your understanding.
