Bio and Links
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.

Directions to Brown Family Cemetery in WV
Hi, I would like to find the Brown Family Cemetery in Bean Settlement, Hardy County, WV, as I have found a link to a John Marshall (and his wife Rachel Marshall) to my ancestry. Can you please provide directions? Thank you! JW

Jacob Meadows is not in this "HAWLEY" cemetery, I'm asking you again, to remove this memorial.

Hi. Thanks for all your work on this great site. I have Ann's mother as Jane Greer and you have her as a Williams. If I am wrong, (which is a possibility) I will have to re-do 5 generations. Could Jane Greer and Jane Williams possible be the same person with a prior marriage?
