Bio

I have been researching my family for over 25 years. Any photographs you find on the memorials that I have posted are yours to use on your family tree...after all, they are your relatives, too (credit is appreciated).

I am glad to transfer any memorials that are your family unless they are related closer to me or my husband.

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
