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 BEFORE 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.

Barnum Obituaries
Hi! Roberta,

Thanks so much for sending the obituaries you found for Anna, Clarence and Mary Barnum! I'll soon add them to my master file. Can you cite the sources for them, so I can add those, also?

Kind regards,

Patrick

RE: Is this your Enoch Baldwin
oh I forgot, and one 1/2 sister that is buried with his mother, ( I have verified this with the cemetery records myself via phone and the babys death record. Enoch was prob to young to remember and she was only 5 mos old. he did have a brother that was born one yr prior to him according to torontos official records, I have not been able to locate the brothers death certificate yet. I have only found the birth record. the babys name was Joseph Enoch Baldwin. born one year prior to Enoch Joseph Enoch Baldwin born in 1891. Enochs moms given name was Margaret Amanda (Payne) Baldwin, Ostrander, but she went by Maggie. :) its a puzzle our family has been putting together through official records. Enoch and his sister Olive Mae , were pretty private and also young when they were separated from the birth family.

Enoch was my great uncle, even though I never got to meet him, my mother and father did. Enoch was my fathers uncle. photos on the findagrave pages are from our family, Enoch and his sister was dropped off by their stepfather in cedar creek Indiana,after their mom died in child birth. Enoch was taken in by Sol and Rilla Goldsmith. and later went on to stay and work and become just one of the family with the Millers,. They thought of him as nothing less then part of the family. Enoch passed away on 1-29-1979. You prob didn't need all that, but I thought I would tell you. gerri

regarding place of birth
for memorial # 31282959 Enoch J Baldwin. He was my great grandmothers brother, Enoch's birth place was Chinguacousy, Toronto, Canada. if you could add that for our family, we would greatly appreciated it. His parents were Nathan Baldwin and Margaret Amanda ( Maggie) Payne-Baldwin. His mother later remarried shortly before her death,I have linked up her grave page to his. Thank you Gerri parkison Reddin

Hi,

When I took the cemetery pictures some had the last name on a family stone the the first names on the other ones. I always took the family first followed by the individual one.

I do not know if the pictures are put in the quarries in the order that I took them or not.

Because of this new system I plan on going through the cemeteries and make corrections as time permits. Go ahead and put them in and I will later check and see if I can match the picture. I think you need to place a letter in the last name slot for this to happen. Then if you could let me know I can look for the ones.

Thanks,
Ken

Duplicate Memorial?
Hello, While researching Charlotte (Lottie) Weeks I think I found that she has duplicate memorials. One under Charlotte and the other under Lottie. #39429452 and #39429816. Maybe they can me merged??

Take care,
Kirsten

M. Philomena Demers,154816022
Hi Roberta:
I've recently found the death record for Philomena Demers and put it up on Ancestry.com. I've just found the picture of her headstone that you've put up and was wondering if I can include it on here Ancestry death and burial records? From her death record, her parents were Modeste Demers and Christine Olivier. Philomene was born in 1850.
