Bio Photo May 2011
Thank you again to all who continue to visit my angel momma and other memorials. Your thoughtfulness is always appreciated.

If you have time, this Memorial Day, please visit my step son's Fallen Battalion Brothers of the 3/25th Marines who lost their lives in Iraq in 2005. (Virtual Cemetery 10) My step son is being re-deployed this summer. Please keep him in your prayers.

May each of you be abundantly blessed!! XOXO


~~ Dear Ancestor ~~
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.

--Author Unknown

Thank you so very much for taking so much time to share your insights with me. FindAGrave is a TRUE Godsend!!!! and it is people like you, who reach out to complete strangers, that make it that way!!

Currently researching ALL McPHAULs, CATHERs and FITZWILLIAMs (regardless of Ancestry, Line, Race, Religion, Etc. ) and their descendants. Would LOVE to hear from you!

You are most welcome to use the photo wherever you like. You have my permission. I like the 'Dear Ancestor' poem you have listed. Very nice! Jane Golenko

Daniel McNeill Headstone Picture
Dear Kathy, Thank you for asking, you can use any of my pictures and my name as the photographer. I'm glad I could help with your tree. I like to use pictures of headstones when I can't find a picture of the person too. I also give the photographer credit if I use their picture. Have a great day!!

Alexander "Alex" McKay
It has been 20 to 25 years since I entered Alexander McKay in my genealogy database. That was before Brothers Keeper provided more than a three-digit space for sources. I assume that the information came from libraries in Sulfur Springs, Hopkins County, TX, and/or Philadelphia, Neshoba County, MS.

RE: Cemetery Stomping for the McPhauls!!!
Thanks, Kathy. Yes, I officially joined only recently. I have been visiting the website for a lot longer than that though. Unfortunately, I am not from NC. My Dad was stationed here in 1978 and we just stayed after he retired. I do have family that was from NC but that was generations before me. I am just now getting to research their information. I love taking photo's and love history, especially genealogical history so I figured I should just help others if I could here. :)
