"It wonders me!" Learning and sharing stories is what I find fascinating...events of our ancestry raise more questions than answers. One facet of my family roots involved a plantation owner gifting a slave child as a wedding present. Read about Ann Melinda "Black Ann" Lewis Hilliard's life-long stirring story.
Another link to an ancestral past stands as a reminder of life itself:
Oh let me not forgotten lie,
Lest you forget that you must die;
For Death's a debt to nature due,
Which I have paid and so must you.
Esther (Reed) Edgerton [1766-1792] is my 9th great uncle's first cousin thrice removed.
If you do not know when your ancestor died or where he was buried, please don't create a memorial and cemetery for him, or place her memorial in an existing cemetery. Family, transcribers, and photographers will search a cemetery for a grave that was never there, and researchers will see your creation as fact since Find A Grave is a database for grave locations.
Have a great day!
