"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 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.

RE: Freddy Jett
I am not sure. My theory is he is the son of Tolbert and Louisa Jett, although I have found no records of him. Here's why I think that:
His gravestone is located among other close family members on the east side of the cemetery - this is where they buried 4 other sons and at least one grandson.
His stone is hand carved in the same style as the "Infant Jett son of JT Jett" gravestone nearby - JT stands for James Tolbert Jett
In the 1990 census, Louisa reports that she has had 9 children of whom 6 are still living. I only know of 8. John and the Infant Jett had died already. Andy, Lillie, Jim, Sephie, Wes and Harv were still alive. So there is one more unaccounted for that would have died by 1900. I think that might be Freddy.

Mary Ann Hughes/Frytown Cem.

Would you please transfer the FindAGrave Entry for the infant, Mary Ann Hughes d. 1863 to me? I believe that this is the niece of Mary Ann Hughes Weekes, who is buried in the Frank Pierce Cemetery. Baby Mary Ann would be the firstborn daughter of Mrs. Weekes brother John Hughes and wife who lived in Sharon Township from 1862-66 before moving west.

Thanks for deciphering this old stone, it's provided another clue to the search for my Irish Famine ancestors.
