Note; I used the name Walling as I was growing up because my uncle Forest Walling raised me.
As it is not my legal name I still prefer to use it.

Dear Ancestor

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone,
The name and date are chiseled out,
on polished marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care,
It is 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, in and flesh blood and 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.

We live as long as we are remembered......Old Proverb


If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.


If anyone has any stories or information on any of my memorials, please let me know.
Every person that has lived has a story to tell.
I would like to know those stories. I think that every person should have their life remembered.
Anything at all is not to small, when it comes to a person's life.


If I have pictures, you may use them without asking. They are all our families.


A.R. Kendrick (A Parker relative, written on his stone).

I want no costly stone upon my grave to be
Ah, Savior knows his own and that's enough for me.
Just write it deep and plain that all who pass
may know that death to me is gain:
Through it to life I go.

RE: James E. Rankin
You are most welcome. I am trying to be more involved in my genealogy. Uncle Ernest,as my mom called him, was driving our new car when my dad was killed in S Texas while our family was on vacation there. He was severely injured, dad was killed & I was not seriously hurt. The ladies were off visiting somewhere else then.

Thomas Jordan
Hello, thank you for posting the photo of the marker for Thomas Jordan. I read that his son, Thomas Jordan, who died in 1833 in JoDaveiss Co., IL was in the same cemetery, both of the graves having been moved with the RR went across the cemetery where they had been buried previously. I am thinking that there was no marker for the son or there would be a photo. Can you confirm this, or tell me if you know he is not buried with his father? Thanks very much.

Miles Bennett
You had left a request for a photo of Miles Bennett's marker at Magnolia Cemetery in Houston, but according to the memorial page, there is no marker. Do you have reason to believe a marker has been placed there since the memorial page was set up? If so, I'm glad to go and check it out.
Best regards,

Mary Elizabeth (Kyle) Taylor
You attached a picture of Mary Elizabeth Kyle Taylor to her mother's memorial (64198219) because you didn't think she had a FG memorial.

She's buried in New Mexico and has a FG memorial, 18160194, in case you'd like to move your picture.

RE: Wallings
You are very welcome. It is so nice to find another person that feels about the lives of those gone before. I feel that each person contributed to the lives that are now in session. Finding a name, grave and dates are fine, but I want to know that person by knowing where they lived, what they did, their family, the history of the times in which they lived, etc. What an immence net humans form for we are all interlocked in some way...if now by blood, by life on the same planet. So nice to hear from you.

Norman & Emma Walling
I am sorry but there are no headstones for either Norman or Emma. If you will go to the memorial, I added a picture for each for the location of their graves to the left of the white headstone for Carroll. Emma is next to Carroll and Norman is next to Emma. If you click on the pictures, you will find the Plot and explanations. Hope this helps you.
