Member Find A Grave: 7/23/2002 - name: Snowbird * Genealogist for 43 years, since 1972 *
* (8th generation Western New York'er) *

****[My Husband,Paul Tokarsky died August 3, 2015. I am behind with Find A Grave photos & information. I will be back to Find A Grave shortly. Please send emails or corrections for to approval.] ****

"Every cemetery gives a history of people that once lived, loved & worked hard to scrape up a living for their Families. It's important to take Photos of All Gravestones while they are Still Readable, Writings Wash Out or Vandalism Destroys them". Laurie S Tokarsky

" Consider, Friend, as you pass by: As You are now, so once was I. As I am now, You shall be. Prepare, therefore, to follow me ". A Scottish Gravestone epitaph.

The Rose Upon The Wall
" A Rose once grew where all could see,
sheltered beside a garden wall,
And as the days passed swiftly by,
it spread its branches, straight and tall...

One day, a beam of light shone through
a crevice that had opened wide
The Rose bent gently toward its warmth
then passed beyond to the other side.

Now, you who deeply feel its loss,
be comforted- the Rose blooms there -
it's beauty even greater now, nurtured by
God's own loving care " a shorter version
of A L Frink's Rose Beyond the Wall

" Dear Ancestor,
Your gravestone stands among the rest;
Neglected & alone
The name & date are chiseled out
On polished, marble stone
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn
You did not know that I existed
You died & I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone
Our Blood contracts & 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 & loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you ".

Mary Lucille Ackles-Bullock FAG# 134796637
Laurie,
I am wondering if you are going to accept the parents that I put on Mary's Find A Grave Memorial. I am her great niece, and would be grateful for this.
Mary is the daughter of Stephen D. Ackles (Rabi) and Lila Isabella Rhoades. I have all of her information with the exception of a marriage date to Cady Richmond Bullock. I know that there is a memorial stone in Fort Sam Houston, TX That is their national cemetery. But I am sure that Mary and Cady were buried right where Mary is. They had one child, Richard R. Bullock. However, my mother told me that he died young with a blood disease (possibly Leukemia?) or something like that. Thanks, Hope to hear from you soon. I have been doing genealogy for 51 years now... too long believe me...lol. I didn't find Cady or Mary until I started researching his family then I found them in this cemetery all together. Makes a lot of sense to me for sure.
Thanks so much for adding my great aunt sure made things easier.

Charles & Lucy Hapgood's son
Hey Laurie!

First of all, thank you for all you've done for Find-A-Grave. So very kind of you!

I was excited to find my grandson's great (x4) grandfather's memorial and all the info you entered from "Rushford & Rushford People" and "Hapgood Family: Descendants of Shadrach Hapgood 1656-1898". Now I'm wondering how I can get a copy of those books for my grandson!

The reason for this msg is that the death year for Dexter Hapgood who married Julia Corse is 1900, not 1848. I just took photos of their monument yesterday in Clymer, NY. See memorial # 151485634. I hope you'll have time to change that info to avoid confusion for anyone in the future.

Thanks, again!
Pam

OOPS.....I hit the enter button, and POOF....off the blank message went...hehe.

What I meant to send was:
There are two (2) memorials for Luella Metcalf-Bell. The first one was recorded Mar 20, 2011, and the number is: 67209758 if you'd like to check on it.

As yours is the second one recorded, you might want to delete it so as not to be confusing to other family members.

Regards,
B Stone

Burgasser (Mt. Prospect)
Hi Laurie. I'm real sorry on the loss of your husband, but if you remember, can you please let me know what section of Mt. Prospect Cemetery David Burgasser is in? I went there once a few years ago. I remember there are about 3 steps on a small hill you need to go down to get there. TY and my prayers and condolences go out to you.
