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.

Hi Roberta - The (Grady) looks just like a maiden name, and none of his vital records mentions the name. I may discover the answer in time, and I'll keep you posted ... David
|David Edsall||Merle (Grady) Edsall|
Hi Roberta - Thank you posting this and other memorials to Find-a-Grave. Merle's name raises questions - in the censuses he appears as James M. and Merle J. or simply James; in the marriage record and on his WW I draft card he is James Merle Edsall. Where the Grady came from I do not know ... could it be a typo in stone? Still looking, best wishes, David Edsall

What help are you looking for?
I am currently knee deep in another cemetery project, but I may be able to help on a "smaller scale!"
Thank you for emailing and asking!

|Cindy Lacey||RE:Burns Family|
My Great Grandparents are Thomas Jefferson & Estella "Stella" (McGuire) Rogers.
Their Daughter's Adah Mae (Rogers) Smith is my Grand Mother and her sister, Chloe (Rogers) married Lee Burns.
My Father's side is buried around that area so I am searching and connecting them together.
Who knows me might be related so how.
