Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and the 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.
Walter Butler Palmer (1868-1932)

My husband is part of these families. His paternal grandmother was Rose Lillie Mitchell. Where did you get all the information on Charles Mitchell I? We are planning on making a trip to Bloomsfield Nebraska, my father-in-law was born there & of course a lot of the family is buried. Can you think of anything we should know, see, or do while we are there.
Thank you for all your work.
I really want to thank you for adding the photos of Hans and Dora's graves. They are my great-great grandparents and I have so little information on Hans. It really means a lot. Blessings to you.

|Stephen Ranum||RE: Ranums at Wyuka cemetery|
No problem. They were children who died tragically so there might not be any markers. I typed what was in the newspaper at the time
|Stephen Ranum||Ranums at Wyuka cemetery|
I called the Wyuka cemetery and they do have records of both Opal and Albert. The location for both was copied into the memorial
Thanks Vicky, you and other cemetery walkers do a wonderful job helping genealogy buffs like me.
