|Bio and Links|
"Memories of You" was a pop song published in 1930 (lyrics by Andy Razaf; music by Eubie Blake). It was best popularized by the incomparable Benny Goodman and his orchestra. My Dad used to practice it at home on his clarinet when I was a kid, though I never knew what it was called back then, and didn't know the lyrics. Now every time I hear that tune, it brings back my memories of those happy days, and memories of my father and other loved ones gone ahead.|
It's been said that no one is finally dead until he is forgotten. Another thought along these lines runs: You are not really dead until after your name is spoken aloud on earth for the last time.
At every gravesite, no matter how old, how poorly marked, how long forgotten, there lies the memory of a precious life lived with a beginning, a middle, an end, and a story worth telling and remembering. Each tombstone marks a significant day of human sorrow. And around most every tombstone was once gathered the unbreakable force of love.
Findagrave and its volunteers are here to respect those memories and to help keep those individual stories and names alive, whenever possible. Each memorial made here is for one more person who is gone but not forgotten.
Turn Again To Life
by Mary Lee Hall
If I should die and leave you here awhile
be not like others sore undone,
who keep long vigil by the silent dust.
For my sake turn again to life and smile,
nerving thy heart and trembling hand
to do something to comfort others than mine.
Complete these dear unfinished tasks of mine
and I perchance may therein comfort you.

|Rean Lackey||Thank you for Find A Grave|
I am so glad that I found Find A Grave. I have found several of my friends and relatives there. I have also added some memorials.....I added my brothers, LJ and Ted Henderson, my Parents Linzie and Oatie (Jones) Henderson...and both of my own children...my son Bobby O'Brien Lackey (1962-2001) and more recently, my daughter Deanna Caryn (Lackey) Elgin (1966-2014) I also added my husbands parents, and his sister.
|F Chambers||RE: Dorothy Ellen Britt Blackwell|
You are welcome. I've done the same thing several times. I noticed this one because she is the mother of a much loved classmate who passed away last week.
|Shari R.||House of Israel|
It appears that there are two sites labeled "House of Israel" cemetery. One site has only six entries and the other has hundreds. There is only one cemetery on Wood Rd. with this name. Would you be able to transfer your entries to correct this? Thanks

|lorraine groeser||RE: Elizabeth Scheel|
Which branch of the Scheel family tree are you in?
|Oh look, a chicken!||George Sampson|
Hiya! I added the info you provided for George, I added it and am trying to ferret out who his parents were too. It endlessly amazes me how many people drowned in local canals, sad even all this time later :[
I am doing general survey/photography work in Creekside, starting with the oldest section (L). If you have other relatives in this cemetery that you know about, let me know the surnames and I'll let you know when I have added or updated their memorials.

Thank you for searching for her grave for the photo request - you effort is appreciated.
|Kimby P.||RE: Obrists|
You're very welcome! A couple of my daughters and myself helped the Williamstown Historical Society photograph the entire cemetery a few years back. I'm still in the process of labeling some of the stones which makes it much easier to find when a request comes in for that cemetery.

Once again, thank you. I was glad to be of assistance. I have no relatives from the American Revolutionary period, so it was a much needed history review for me. Yes, the gravestone does not list "Mary's" name , but as you indicated, the name Polly.
I also reflect on the irony that I lived in Dedham, MA for a while and now live in Londondery,NH and you are searching for your ancestors in these two towns.Small world I guess.
Good luck on your continued search and let me know if I can help.
