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.

RE: Albert Olson
I have tried and tried to get one of my uncles transferred to me, but the person who holds on to his page isn't even related, got control of the page in a big batch transfer from an inactive contributor, and won't transfer that one page to me, so I'm sensitive to family belonging to family. I don't know any Olsons so I'm happy to place him with someone who knows about him. Thanks for adopting my page. :)

RE: hi
Albert Olson's page was made by Barbara from Mich. and Find A Grave transferred all her pages over to me to maintain. I'm happy to transfer him over to you. :)

RE: hi
I am now encountering the same thing you are - multiple pictures are being uploaded (same picture), occasionally getting two memorials (identical) and getting an error when inputting the plot.

Just FYI.

RE: hi
I made it through one line of stones and found that some of the stones used not only the front but the back for the wife. On those, I took a picture of the front (again) and the back so that I could connect ("his wife" without a last name on the stone)wife with husband.

All of the pictures that have been uploaded to Find A Grave should be already input into a memorial. I have additional pictures to upload and additional pictures to take in the cemetery.

If you want all of the St Patrick Cemetery memorials, I will be happy to transfer them to you.

Thanks for being on Find A Grave.

Find A Grave Correction: Alvin Ivens
Thank you for the full obit for Alvin (156863286). I had that information, but in accordance with find a grave policy, I do not include living persons, so I do not normally post unedited obituaries in full. Also, as the pob/pod is already included within the memorial, it seems redundant to repeat that within the bio. Hopefully what I posted honors Alvin's memory. If you think I missed important instances or content, please let me know.
Thank you for sharing and all of your posts on this site.
With respect, Richard

Kentucky Hill Hunter
Ellie Blevins Blair Relative
Hello ma'am, my name is Kevin Cantrell and I happened across your memorial page for Ella Blair (132517620) Are you related to Aunt Ellie? She was uncle Marvin Blair's second wife after aunt Addie passed away many years ago. If so, I'd love to hear back from you. They moved away from Kentucky many years ago, heading out to Indiana. I remember uncle Marvin's brother, Red Blair and his sister Mary, but we never did get to see Marvin too much after the move.

RE: Thank you
I don't know if you were aware of this website, but it can be a big help when trying to figure out dates. https://clerkregister.kalcounty.com:8444/eagleclerk/eagleweb/docSearch.jsp Click on Public login.

You posted a headstone photo in the correct cemetery but to the wrong George Russell's memorial.

George Tyler Russell is the memorial you want to post your photo to. Same cemetery as the George Russell who died 1930
