Your tombstone stands among the rest;
neglected and alone.
The name and date are chisled out
On polished, marble 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 wonded if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday, I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

|LCalaway||Charlotte Dixon Young|
You connected my mother (Edith Geraldine Young Meredith Feilbach) to her father (Jerry Wilson Young) awhile back (Clarendon Hills). My grandfather's second wife was Charlotte Dixon Young. She is buried in Memorial Park Cemetery and Crematorium in Skokie -- Memorial #144546652.
Are you able to make the connection for these two people?
Thank you for your help with my mother.

The tombstone photo of Find A Grave for Hugne Olson is not for him, but a photo his wife's tombstone.
On the stone: Waljer L. Likness/Linnes (she was born in Leknes, Skånevik, Hordaland, Norway, so she evidentley used the farm name as a surname).
Next line on the tombstone: Kone ... (Kone is the common word in Norwegian for Wife. The unreadable letters is probably: of)
So, she is the wife of Hugne Olson.

Use as you wish.
|Felicia (Foltz) Hoffman||IOOF Cemetery|
You may use any of my photos.
|Thomas & Tonita Wilson||VanBibber|
I seen that you had a photo request for Ratliff VanBibber in James Cemetery/Evansville. I was walking the Locust Hill Cemetery and came across a Thomas J VanBibber (1883-1936). I have added it to find a grave's website. I would assume VanBibber is a rather unique name so I thought I would pass this info on to you.
New pic added to mem pg 112598260.
