|Bio and Links|
Ever since I can remember, I have had a fascination with cemeteries. There was one right down the street from our school, we used to walk through it often, It was so peaceful and the monuments were so beautiful. My father Calvin Russell Swallow is buried there now. My sister Mel and I have gone back to Massachusetts and other New England States and explored the cemeteries looking for ancestors. Genealogy and searching cemeteries for family has been a treasured time with my sister. What a gift it is to have a sister to share your interests with.|
I am hoping to make connections with distant cousins and share pictures and stories. I have posted many branches to our tree to do this.
I AM VERY LIBERAL WITH TRANSFERING MEMORIALS. MY PHOTOGRAPHS ARE FOR EVERYONE (COPY THEM AT YOUR PLEASURE) AND I FEEL NO SENSE OF OWNERSHIP OVER MEMORIALS THAT ARE NOT MY FAMILY. I LOVE DOCUMENTING GRAVES. I AM SOMEWHAT OFFENDED BY THOSE WHO DO NOT SHARE THAT SENSE OF GIVING. WE GET NO POINTS IN HEAVEN BY HOW MANY MEMORIALS WE CONTRIBUTED TO FINDAGRAVE. THERE ARE MANY FINE CONTRIBUTORS TO FIND A GRAVE AND A FEW THAT NEED TO GET OVER THEMSELVES. Remember...."God Loves a Cheerful Giver"!!
A POEM FROM ALL OF US AVID GENEALOGIST'S!!
Your tombstone stands among the rest; neglected and alone. The name and dates are chiseled out on polished, marble stone. It reaches out to all who care; it is to 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 not entirely on 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 as you lived and loved, I wonder if you knew that someday I would find this spot, and come to visit you. - Walter Butler Palmer 1906

|Susan Nelson||Mary Hayward Whitcomb, Memorial #18303268|
What wonderful work you are doing here at findagrave.com! I was noticing that you are caring for the memorial of Mary Hayward Whitcomb, who was first married to Jonathan Fairbanks (1666-1697). I was pleased to see that Mary and Jonathan are linked in your memorial for Mary. As you likely already know, Mary and Jonathan had three children before Jonathan and one of their daughters, Grace, were tragically killed during a bloody Indian attack on Lancaster, Massachusetts Bay Colony. Your memorial for Mary links two of Mary and Jonathan's three children with Mary, but Hannah is not yet linked to Mary's memorial. I am interested because Mary is my 7th great grandmother, I have an extensive tree at ancestry.com, and Hannah is the daughter of Mary by Jonathan. (I am descended from Mary's second marriage, which was to David Whitcomb.) Would you be kind enough to link Mary to her daughter, Hannah (#62384343), so that the family can be together at findagrave.com? I hate to see Hannah's memorial separated from her family and have also asked the caretaker of Jonathan's memorial to link Hannah to her father. Again, many thanks for all that you are doing for everyone touched by your memorials. All my best to you, Susan

Sharon was an amazing woman and really didn't keep in contact well with her family. She was completely involved in her children and grandchildren's lives.
I loved reading the stories of Darrell's great grandparents and I shared with him yesterday. He did have some stories from his grandfather. As a matter of fact he said that he would never eat chicken because many times his dad was paid in chickens when they didn't have any way to pay him for medical services.
Darrell has a facebook page, not that he is on it much Darrell Suggs, and I have one called Gail Evans Suggs. We are always happy to share with family.
Also tell your father in law Sharon was an amazing woman and I loved her dearly as I do her son and her daughters. I'm very close to them as his sisters are my sisters too.
Star, thanks so much for sharing your information. Dr. Rhodes is my husband's great grandfather too. Loved seeing his picture and would love to share trees with you.
