Genealogy has been my interest for many years. My research comes from family Bibles, newsclippings, church records, other family genealogists, cemetery visits, libraries, and conversations with older family members.
Any information would be appreciated. I am also willing to share the information that I have.
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 out 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.
