Bio and Links
I live in western NE, Garden County. I would be willing to do research or take photos of local grave sites. Please feel free to use any photo I have taken for your personal use.

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'd 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: Ethel Hansen
Hi Mary,

I was a little scared this morning, I couldnt find the obit.. but I double checked them all again, and I found it. When I needed an obituary, I used Newspaper Archives to look them up, then I would print out the whole page, so its small. This morning I looked on their page and it couldnt make a match, so I really started to worry. Anyway, I will see if I can make the print bigger, and then I will send it to you. It says she was born April 16, 1913, at Denmark, Ks, and passed September 5, 1989 at Rogue River. Interment at Scenic Hill cemetery, Ashland. It mentions her brother Kenneth. By some chance did she write a book ? For the life of me I cant remember the name, but it did have to do with teaching. I
will also transfer her memorial to you as well. I am so glad you wrote to me. I will holler soon. SUE

RE: Ethel Hansen
Hi Mary, I am so sorry that is has taken me so long to respond to you. I was wondering which memorial you are referring to, that I had mentioned that I thought Mrs. Hansen was buried in Oregon. I have bought some booklets from the Historical Society in Abilene, Ks., that I added abstracts of obits to memorials, and have added memorials for folks in cemeteries around my area. I am really interested in answering your question. The information that I entered was in hopes of family members being able to find their relatives, hopefully easier. One cemetery just down the road a piece I've been able to add names to the cemetery because they do not have a headstone. Anyway, please let me know, and I will get back to you a lot sooner ! Thank you, Sue

RE: Mary Elizabeth Wright Britton
I totally agree with you; the memorials should not just be the names and dates. I'm addicted to Find A Grave and try to make my memorials the very best that I can, but I want documentation before I add the info. Happy Hunting!!!!

I need to unclaim this photo request unfortunately. I didn't make it before the snow came. I'm afraid pics at Steamboat won't happen until spring :( I'll keep watch though just in case. We are having a lot of snow!

RE: David Watts
It's always disappointing when there is not a stone. I was told during a tour at Crown Hill that 1/2 of the graves don't have stones. So it's not that unusual. But at least you know the spot he is resting in. God Bless.
