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.

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?

RE: Robert Johnson
I was married into the Johnson family. I was an Becker before I was married. I am also trying to look up the Becker tree. I can't find anything on them. I've been doing my family tree for many years now. How can I look them up when they are not online? I don't drive so I can only look them up online.

RE: Alice Rasalie Botts Gravely
Hi -
After I sent my message to you re Mark B Stephenson/Alice Botts Stephenson Gravely, I realized the memorial I was referring to was by someone else, "stars&bars". I just checked and it is a different memorial number, # 51349601. When I did a search on that number, it says it does not exist in the Find A Grave database. I would upload the photos, but the Find A Grave rules say you can't upload photos you didn't take yourself. If you have photos, it would be great if you have time to add them to the memorial.
