|Bio and Links|
I am a collector and amateur historian of early Space Related articles and Military history focused on the AAF in WWII but covering all branches world wide. I have been active in this field since 1990. |
The military history of my family got me started on working my family tree. When I don't have a photo of a member I start looking for there final resting place.
I have always enjoyed helping others in my military research and have also tried to do that in my family history search.
I am not in this for the numbers so I am glad to transfer to family. The whole reason for doing this is for the FAMILY of those at rest, which seems to be forgotten by some members. Maybe they get paid for there numbers? Hah!
I found this poem on fellow member Linda Dukes (46842176) page and really liked it. Linda lists it as Author Unknown. I tweaked it a little so this is my modified version. Thanks for this Linda, I think its great!
Poem for a Genealogist
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 before I was born...
Yet each of us shares cells of you; in flesh, in blood, in bone...
Our heart 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 knew someday; that I would find this spot...
And come to visit you this way; though I did know you not.

|Janelle Dvorak||Thank you!|
Thank you for the transfers of Gideon and Polly Lounsberry. I appreciate it very mcuh.
|J. V. Dvorak||Lounsberry line|
Mark, I note that you've left memorials on the Gideon Lounsberry family pages. I am a Lounsberry descendant, specifically of Gideon and Polly's daughter Margaret, who emigrated to Wisconsin with her husband William Henry Travis.
|Ed Smith||RE: Harry Monroe Tayloe (40764282)|
I don't know who may have given you the information, but I just posted Harry's marker photo for you. If I can be of any other help, please don't hesitate to ask.
All the best.

Hi Mark, thank you for your post of my brother. He was greatly love and so missed. You are so right, he and Mother are together in Heaven. Our step-dad is there with them as well. What wonderful happiness they are sharing.
Ricky was kicked by a horse. He and Mother was taken to the hospital in a police car. Our doctor suggested this rather than an ambulance as he wanted Mother to spend these final moments privately with him, not to mention how excited Ricky was hearing the sirens. Our family was never quite the same.

i re photographes your Carrizlas request in Lockhart, Tx. hopefully the pintures are working now. I do not have a person to look after the memorial per your request but there were a lot of recent flowers so it is not totally neglected. Les
|ken||RE: John Riffle|
Mark, I'm pretty sure it's an F and looks like an E because of the green buildup on the stone. Also, the folks that make headstones are prone to making mistakes with names/dates. I've seen several. The next time I'm out that way, I'll stop an verify the initial and send you a message..

I cut the roses back and re poster the photos of the memorials. I took the pictures on my New iphone and posted the new images from the phone. For reasons unknown to me the cover page of the memorials show the pictures 90* off but if you click on them they are correct. The next time I travel to Lockhart I will re do the pictures with my I pad. I know it gets things correct.

I do not know St. Mary's very we'll (I live in another town) or who cares for it but I will cut out the bushes and check on future maintainer people for you. Les
Sorry for the very late reply on your requests. Due to lack of time and so many requests it is hard to complete them all in a timely basis. Also I have been off line for a very long time due to personal reasons.
Thank you for the family connection for Sterling Keys. I have added it to his memorial.
