Bio Photo DEAR ANCESTOR,

YOUR GRAVESTONE
STANDS AMONG THE REST,
FORGOTTEN AND FORLORN.
YOUR NAME AND DATE ARE CHISELED OUT,
ON SLATE OR OLD LIMESTONE,
IT REACHES OUT TO ALL WHO CARE,
IT'S NOT 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,
OF FLESH AND BLOOD AND BONE
OUR HEART CONTRACTS AND BEATS A PULSE,
ENTIRELY NOT OUR OWN.
DEAR ANCESTOR, THE PLACE YOU FILLED,
SO MANY YEARS AGO,
SPREAD OUT AMONG THE ONES YOU LEFT,
WHO WOULD HAVE LOVED YOU SO.
I KNOW THAT YOU LIVED AND LOVED,
BUT, I WONDER IF YOU KNEW,
SOMEDAY I WOULD FIND THIS SPOT,
AND COME TO VISIT YOU.

RE: good morning
I use Microsoft Office Picture Manager to edit my photos. Most of the time, the default size is about 250 x 325. Sometimes I use the predefined setting (e-mail Large 314 x 235). If the original is small then I usually don't try to make it a lot larger because the resolution usually cannot tolerate it and still be a good quality photo. For those that I scan my self, I have a Canon scanner that I get pretty good output from.

Thanks for noticing and asking.

RE: hi again
I believe I have one of the headstones that my father rescued many years ago. My father has passed but my Mom states that she remembers that once while visiting (we living in AZ), my father saw that most was vandalized and took this headstone to save it. Wayne Leaman would have been his grandfather. I would like to return it somehow.

RE: i am going to go check the cemetery out i will get pictures
Thanks! I can give you my email address. sdemint@q.com, The Leaman family is my father's mother's family. They lived in Churubusco. My grandmother's name is Trilby Pauline Leaman (maiden).
I was wondering if they have all of the headstones for those buried there or if some are missing?

Leaman cemetery
My Grandmother Pauline was daughter of Wayne Leaman of Churusbusco. He was son of Samuel Leaman buried here and brother of Albert who is buried here. I would love picture sent to me of graveyard and headstones left if at all possible. I could reimburse for cost. I live now in Phoenix AZ.

Leaman Cemetery
Hi Roberta,
With updating the new pictures of the cemetery, I have revised each individuals site to read:
This Cemetery is located on the north side of Crooked Lake, in the Crooked Lake Nature Reserve. From the entrance to the Preserve walk through the woods and down the graveled path hill to the lake. At the bottom of the hill take the first trail to the left and follow it back up the natural draw (known as the 'Hogs Back'). The cemetery is located above on your right. It is well marked.
The cemetery has just recently been restored to original condition. Having been vandalized in earlier years, 5 headstones remain. Three infants and two adults are buried here.
I'm hoping you will update the information on the basic site.
Thanks for all your help. Much appreciated.
Alice
