I don't know what to say about myself, but I want to say to those of you that come across my photos, if you open them up, I usually will add some kind of comment that I would feel would be helpful to someone doing geneology research, since I personally use FAG a lot for that purpose. I will put the family stone on everyone in that plot, along with the personal marker of all members. I will also put who is next to who.(Helps with relationships to each other)..I am addicted to this..what a great Vice..LOL..My family just shakes their heads..Love our cemeteries, some of them, like Fairlawn in OKC are just so pretty...well gotta run, sun is out, and I have a couple hours to, well you know, go to the cemetery!! MAY 6, 2013,,//William H. Macy & crew at Fairlawn Filming for a new movie!!! how COOL !!!
MAY 2015: I took a trip to Milton, Pa. I took over 1100 photographs! Unfortunately when I burned the photos to a disk from my tablet, it "rearranged" them somewhat, so I did not write on a lot of them the layout of the plot....My family tree: KURTZ_AUTEN/ATEN,BOYER,KLINE, CRAWFORD, REETZ.
When I find a document showing where people are buried, I add as many as I can. If it lists age at death, I will put that on the listing, but I don't spend the time figuring it out, I feel it is more important to get the name on F.A.G, so that others may find family, the dates can always be edited.
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled 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, 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.
