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 Spread 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.
You know being lonely its funny in a way on one hand i am free to explore my mind and find the answers to questions about myself but on the other hand i have no one to share the answers with..... Maybe loneliness is best with a friend - Jeremy Myers
Boy in the box Hello Sideshow, I wanted to introduce myself. I sponsored "The Boy in the Box" when I noticed he wasn't sponsored. However his memorial reads someone else is the sponsor. Not sure how that works. Did their sponsorships expire?
I enjoyed reading some of your more unusual memorials.
RE: Rosie Belle Maggo Ostrom I'd like to see that photo of the school children. My mom and my Aunt Rose are the only 2 left of Tinsie's children. Mom said to contact my Aunt. Rose Pletcher in Hesperia, MI. Mom said she has old family pictures.
RE: Rosie Belle Maggo Ostrom I've just sent an email to the registrar of the Sault Ste Marie Chippewa tribe. Hopefully I'll hear back from her soon with some information about how we can go about getting information.
I would love to find out more about her. My grandmother didn't talk to much about her because at the time there was such a stigma associated with being a Native American. I searched a few years ago but came up against a brick wall and was told that all the records were lost and nobody knew anything about her other than the fact that she was Native American. Perhaps we can solve this mystery. I'd like to try.
RE: Rosie Belle Maggo Ostrom Yes, we are related. Hi cousin! lol I am Norma Jean Olsons daughter. Mom and I were talking this morning and I googled Rosie Belle and found this sight. My mom's information is a little different from yours but it is sketchy at best. We've had a hard time coming up with family information. I assure you that I am who I say I am. :)
Rosie Belle Maggo Ostrom I am Rosie Belle Ostrom's great grandduaghter. My grandmother was Tinsie Sylvester Olson, Rosie Belle's oldest daughter. If you could contact me, I would really appreciate it. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I would like to know where you got your information about my great grandmother. Some of it is wrong.
