|Bio and Links|
I am the archivist in my family and have enjoyed researching my family genealogy off and on for the past several years. My favorite hobbies are scrapbooking, photography and walking through old cemeteries. I love the history one finds there. I am currently making heritage albums for my siblings and children. During my research I came across a photo of my great grandmother's grave marker. She lives across the country from me and I would never have seen it had it not been for a volunteer who photographed it. I want to give that gift back and am honored to volunteer for findagrave.com.|
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.

I forgot to mention I looked for George's obit but it seems there wasn't one published at the time of his death. I looked through both newspapers indexes, in business at the time of his death, and he wasn't listed.
I can look through the marriage license book and try and find out who Martha married by the name Graham.

Martha, Find A Grave #24590265, is buried beside George. Her obit is posted on her memorial. She obliviously remarried as her name at burial was Martha Ann Stimpson Graham. Unfortunately, she has no headstone marking her grave. She was born Aug. 2, 1869 at Moundsville, Virginia and died Jan. 14, 1941 at Eureka, Kansas. I have her daughters obit if you're interested. Just e-mail me and I will forward it. firstname.lastname@example.org
I can look for her daughters husband's obit if you wish.
Martha is in grave 68-06-06. George is in 68-06-05. She is buried to the left of his grave.

Lena is in an unmarked grave. I did upload a photo of the plot to all who are buried there.
Also, I sent you a message through Joseph Adams memorial.

You're welcome. It's a hobby that does some good and pays off with nice comments like yours.

You're welcome, the snow was deep at the section of your other request so that one will have to wait. Best wishes, Dale

I went ahead and claimed the photo request. I can't find anyone with their last name in the burial records for Odd Fellows that are online on the state archives website so I will contact the cemetery tomorrow and see if they have burial records for them.
