Bio and Links
Bio Photo I came across find a grave while looking into my ancestry.
Some photos may have additional notes in the Caption, usually plot or family information, so be sure to check it out.

Please let me know of any corrections, additions or transfer requests through the edit button on the memorial.

I do enjoy the walks through the cemeteries, the research, the data entry and linking relatives.

Thank you to all the volunteers here on Find A Grave, your work is invaluable and appreciated.

I found this online and wanted to share:

Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone

The name and date are chiseled out
On polished marble stone

It reaches out to all who care
For us to late to mourn

You did not know I would exist
You died and I was born

Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood and bone

Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
So many 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: Re: Anna Spafford Craft
Thank you for the information. I have deleted the picture from Alice. My desk top computer has the pictures so I must wait till our grandson returns it following some "fixing" before I can put in their correct pictures. Again thank you for your patience and directions.

Re: Anna Spafford Craft
Guess I was in too much of a hurry - how can I remove her sister's marker and then put in hers? Yes, the mother is Elizabeth Masterson Spafford. Alice Carpenter and Katherine Dobbert were the only surviving sisters, so I think that is why the others were not mentioned. This family is together at Calvary Cemetery - same general section/lot but separate graves and markers. Please help me straighten them out. I am sorry for all the problems I am causing.

Re: Anna L Spafford Craft
Now I sound foolish! It is the birth year that might be wrong, not the death year. I have tried to find the correct birth year and it fluctuates in the census records. I can not find her 1900 census. So, if the decline is the birth year, then OK. If it is due to anything else, please let me know. I am sorry for the previous note - can you delete it?

Re: Anna L Spafford Craft
Thank you for putting up this grand aunt for me. I tried to edit some information and it was declined. I gather you questioned the validity of something. I would like to know of what item. I think it is her birth year. According to the Tampa Tribune, she died at Mease Hospital on 4 May 1957 under that name of Lucille (her middle name) Craft and she also is listed as dying in May 1957 in the Florida Death Index under name of Lucille A. Craft. There also is a record in Cleveland Necrology of her death, under name of Anna L Craft, published on 13 May 1957. This notice links her with her living sisters. So I feel I have found the correct year of death - not what the stone masons used, I know. If there is any other item you feel is incorrect, please let me know.

Thank you, Pattie, I really appreciate your help.

RE: Roberta M Peck
I think the edit was to add her parents - sometimes when you try to add parents and the spouse is already linked, it tries to delete the existing spouse. I'll try sending it through again. And yes, you're right, you can't designate which spouse came 1st/2nd/etc.

Yes, please, if it's not a problem. At a different time of day, and at a higher resolution?
