We are the chosen. In each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts, but instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the storytellers of the tribe.

Lord, help me dig into the past
And sift the sands of time,
That I might find the roots that made
This family tree of mine.
Lord, help me trace the ancient roads
On which my father's trod,
And led them through so many lands
To find our present sod.
Lord, help me find an ancient book
Or dusty manuscript,
That's safely hidden now away
In some forgotten crypt.
Lord, let it bridge the gap that haunts
My soul when I can't find,
The missing link between some name
That ends the same as mine.

*************************************************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.

Jennefer Burk
Gee Cemetery
I am related to Jesse Gee of VA and KY through his son, John Sanford Gee. I recently had the opportunity to locate and visit the Gee Cemetery in KY and to say it is a mess is an understatement. It exists in a dense thicket and is virtually impossible to get into to photograph stones. Abundant undergrowth of greenbrier, poison ivy etc. I took a few vague photos of headstones from the outer limits. There are at least 70 burials there. I will be contacting people in KY in an effort to get it cleaned up and respected. I will post a few of the photos. If we can start a grassroots effort, perhaps we can get this shameful mess put in order.

Mary McCann Tucker
McCann connection
Hello back to you. You asked about a possible family connection for your husband' mother. My maiden name McCann. No connection. I had my father's Y-DNA done to try and break a brick wall in the mid 1800's. Sure 'nuf as we say in Texas, the family was McCain/McKain that got registered as McCann in their first record in Texas around 1860. It broke thru that brick wall and proved connections way, way back. Good Hunting.

Lenora Christ
Thank you for letting me know. I researched the issue and found that she was buried in the cemetery I her listed in. Her death certificate states she was buried in Needville, not Rosenberg... and the Fort Bend County Library has the location as St. Michael's Catholic Church Cemetery. Is it possible that there are two headstones? If this is the case, there would be a cenotaph. Both pages would be acceptable.

You are welcome. I have pretty much come to the end of what I can find on my family. I have been working on it for 5 years now. I am stuck with the McCallister's in Broughshane, Antrim, Ireland as they don't have records like the U.S. does back in the 1880's. I was told the old death certificates don't even show the next of kin usually so I can't track which Randall McAlister I need. Been quite a ride! My Great Great Grandpa John McAlister was 7 ft. tall and came to the U.S. alone in during the potato family...sad life at that time! Good luck in your searches.

Elijah Green Mancill
Edward G. Mancill, Sr.'s memorial mentioned Elijah Green Mancill but there's no memorial for Elijah. I was wondering if Elijah is Edward's father? I'd like to know more about Elijah's ancestors. Thank you.

What proof do you have of Jack's middle name? I was unable to locate any documents with his name.
