|Bio and Links|
I've been doing genealogy since 1988. I love walking through cemeteries, imagining the lives of the people I pass.|
Most of the pages I post are for people to whom I am not related. (the ones I am connected to usually have a photo of the person added). These "extra" people are ones from local (and not so local) cemeteries that my husband & I photograph their stones and I enter them on FAG, trying to link as many as I can so the families are brought back together after all this time. I do lots of research to accomplish this and I hope I add correct information. I love to connect these people and I'm always thrilled when something comes together, either through the census, obits, marriage records, a family genealogy, Rootsweb entries, or even "social" news in an old newspaper. I hope I find "homes" for all these people, including all the little children who seem to get lost as they had no descendants.

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and the date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care,
It is 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
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you."
written in 1906 by Walter Butler Palmer (1868-1932)

|Kathy Mattaliano||Arthur Sherman and Iva C Hicks Sherman|
Thank you so much for taking the time to photograph their grave markers .
|ttocsmij||Earl and Dorthea Withiam|
Thank you very much for posting the photos. Just as a matter of interest, Dorthea was Earl's first wife. They met in India of all places; both were stationed there in WW2. As I understand it, many years after Dorthea's passing, Earl met his second wife, Kathleen Miller (who passed away just last year).

Hi Cheri, thanks so much for posting the story of Iva. Would you mind if I use the images for my tree? I won't request to maintain the post. She is a very distant cousin and perhaps there are closer relatives who might one day request that. Thanks!
|KStar||Adding photo to Eliza Pitkin Steele|
Your pictures are wonderful! Quick question. You posted a headstone photo for Eliza Pitkin Steele on her son Edward Steele's page. Could you also post it on her individual memorial? These are at the East Bloomfield Cemetery.
