Bio and Links
We are a father and daughter team of amatuer genealogists. Originally most of the memorials we created were for family members and personal friends. We are now adding others. Please ask for transfers if we have added someone that has personal meaning to you.
We are also volunteer photographers. Please feel free to use any photo we've posted to memorials for your family research.

"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.

You have placed a photo on this memorial that doesn't match the name, was that intentional? Thanks! Vonna

RE: William and Mary Gerber
George and Terrie,

Thank you for transferring all the Gerber family to me. I have begun to add data to each of them. I can't thank you enough for your help. I don't know that I would ever have seen these graves without your help.

Sincere Thanks,
Denise Jones

Gerber Family
George,
I just searched some of the Gerber names from your message to me and found that some of them may already have memorials on Find A Grave.

Thanks,
Denise

RE: William and Mary Gerber
Hi George,

Based on what I know about the Gerber family, George Gerber was married to Dora or Dorothy Schultz. The other names on the headstone are their children. The dates I have match perfectly with the dates in your message. Please do set up memorials for the family. That would be wonderful. If you're willing to give me access to the memorials I'd like to add other inforamtion that I know about the family...spouses, children, maybe any missing dates etc.

Thank you so much for all your help. I don't know I will ever be able to go to the cemetery myself to see these graves so your work means a great deal to me.

William and Mary Gerber
George and Terrie,

Thank you so much for the beautiful picture of William and Mary Gerber's headstone. They are my 2X great grandparents and I very much appreciate your efforts on my behalf.

I also love your poem "Dear Ancestor" and identify with the words and message therein. A lovely poem!

Finally, with your permission I would like to use your photo in my family tree and may decide at some point to post it on ancestry.com. Please let me know if that would be acceptable to you.

Again, many thanks,
Denise Jones
