Bio Photo "Dear Ancestor"
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.

Hi Vicky,
Thanks very much for making the transfer and dupe deletion. You are, as always, so responsive! I was happy to be able to link my great uncle to his parents, my great grandparents. (Enjoyed your message - good to "see" you again also!)

Dear Ancestor poem
Lovely poem. It was written in 1906 by Walter Butler Palmer (1868-1932).

Thank you for looking for a marker for Mary, and for the caption with photo of her husband's marker. In the photo it looks like there might be a partially buried, very eroded marker just in front -- is that the case or is it a stump or rock?
Appreciate your time and resolution.
