Born in Winchester, VA - lived outside of Romney, WV for a few short years - in Delaware now. Picked up on family genealogy where my mother left off after her passing in 1988. Also have a deep interest in the Civil War and soldier burials - primarily Hampshire County, WV and surrounding areas in VA and MD.|
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 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.

I was glad to see that I'm not the only one who stays on here so long things start to blur.
I have been researching the cooling family as my mother is a member of the family. The actual William was 14 when he was hit by a train in 1883. This Zachary was his younger brother. Both William and Zachary are names the family used over and over so it can get very confusing as to just who is who. I have located many of the family and have "reunited" them here. I would be pleased to do the same for the couple of Coolings you have registered at the Bethel Cemetery. I see you have both Edwin and his wife Ebbie and their son Edwin, and Zach and his wife Emma also. If you would be willing to transfer them along with this Zach I would happily "reunite" them also.

You are very welcome
Please let me know when you get the documentation. I have found several of my 2nd great-grandfather's relatives at Bethel, but not him. His name is Henry Lapp, married to Julia Stegner. He is alleged to have died in 1864. I believe he is the brother of Michael who also had a son named Henry who married a Julia Stegner, they moved to Cleveland. It was His nephew, marrying his wife's niece. I would be grateful for any help you can give me.
Hello Dan, Please transfer Gertrude Bloom to me #83976394 Thanks

Hello again Dan, nice of you to send an update. I did not know all that about Bethel cemetery burials. That would be super great if you could document all burials there. Would benefit so many people now and in future. Keep me posted and good luck. THANK YOU!
|Eric Speck||Racines in Bethel cemetery|
Thank you for posting the marker photo for Janie Racine. I have added her birth date. There are 3 other Racines on the marker that don't have memorials created. I assume you will be doing that (they are no relation to me). The first one, James T., is Janie's husband. Her 1954 obit writer made an error, he died 37 years before her, not 25 as her obit states. I double-checked the obit image on google's newspaper archive to make sure I didn't make a transcription error. The other 2 are presumably a son of James and Janie and either a daughter or daughter-in-law.

How nice of you to go back to cemetery looking for him. I saw that memorial for the Andrew C. Hickman but wasn't sure if right person. I couldn't find her father either. Are you going to link Grovenia to her husband Andrew's memorial? I love reuniting families. Thanks for your help.
|genieresearcher||Rosetta Reese Pierce|
thanks Dan, I even phoned the cemetery office but they have no records pre 1908 on burials. Yet I think since Rose and her parents lived in Chesapeake City that her father William T. is likely buried there as well. If you find any other Reese's would you kindly let me know. You can see on her mother's memorial page I have the married names of other children as well. Hope you have nice weather there for cemetery walking!
