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.

Thank you for trying to find the grave to photograph. I found his burial listed in the Indiana Archives, so that's the source. Perhaps he is buried elsewhere or his stone has become worn.

RE: Fixed one
Ah. Sometimes I am too obscure, even for myself. What I should have said was I think you accidentally used the wrong cemetery. You have a very beautiful memorial, you even included the obituary. At the bottom of the obituary it says "Burial will be in the Eel River Cemetery." not the Eel River Presbyterian Cemetery. The memorial at the other cemetery includes a picture of the headstone with the same dates as your memorial. Of course, I could be wrong. Gee, I'm sorry about that bit of confusion.

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
