Bio Photo Dear Ancestor
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiselled 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.



"Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?
PLEASE DO NOT ADD NEWSPAPER ARTICLE OR OBITUARY SCANS. The photo section is reserved for headstone/grave photos and possibly a portrait photo of the person, if that photo is owned by you. Do not copy and post photographs from obituary or funeral home websites (unless you personally are the photographer), as they are protected by copyright law. Find A Grave reserves the right to remove obituary notices and photographs from memorial records."

If you have posted a scanned obituary, please be aware that I will transcribe the obituary and ask that you please remove the scan from the memorial. If the scan is not removed, I will request that FAG remove it from the memorial.

I will be more than happy transcribe obituaries in the bio section of any memorial that I mange. Simply send me the obituary including the newspaper it came from and the date it was printed.


Most of the memorials that I have created or manage are family. However, if I am not related, I am more than happy to transfer. Please contact me by selecting edit on the memorial and then selecting suggest any other correction or addition. Please be sure to include your FAG contributor number. You do not need to manage the memorial to contribute additional information.

Thank you for following these simple rules.

Hello, Could you tell me if you are related to the Worden's Family? I am working on our family history and your AW comes up on most of the "Find A Grave Memorial". Thank you if not I would like to have their memorial transfer to me. I can send you a list of names. Again Thank you. Sherry

RE: Jeanette Decker #115543794
Good evening,
I just saw your message about Jeanette, I wanted to let you know that I am not related but Union Cemetery is not a huge cemetery and I would be more than happy to take a walk through and peek for the directions to her grave. The next 10 days here are suppose to be quite hot, but if you aren't in town quite yet I am sure I can help you with that...That office doesnt really return calls so easily so I am sure they may not be much help for you.
P.s Would you like the transfer?

Hi, Cherie Officer has found Gladys's (memorial 82704500) Obit. and I have added it to her memorial. Obit. provided her parents names and She is now linked back for several generations, which may interest you if you are related I am not related (yet), but enjoy doing all this, when I have time. Regards, Mark

Hi Andrea.....

I've transferred Albert's memorial to you. You'll be able to change the biography to say anything you would like. A person doing research on the poorhouse sent me this info from the records and I can understand how you feel about what it says about your 2nd Great Grandfather. I would feel the same and will try to take this into account in the future if I add anything to someone's memorial that is not of my own family......

RE: Cilbert Barley
It is rather complicated on how I am related, would take a bit to explain here. Since I am researching a lot of branches of my family tree I am expanding out over many generations. According to Ancestry Cilbert is the father-in-law of father-in-law of 1st cousin 2x removed of husband of daughter. What is interesting however is as I do more research and link up more people that relationship status changes from time to time.

RE: Amos D. Scott
We try to sort out requests for photos in this area of France,I understand that distance is a factor for some families to visit their loved ones.This resting place in Northern France is just outside a small town.The sun shines most of the time in this area during summer and the winters are quiet harsh going down to minus 15 Celcius.When we visit it is always peaceful and there is a USA manager overseeing a large contingent of local workers who maintain all aspects of the cemetery.If you do visit the manager will assist you in any way he can as he has a vast knowledge of all US service men and women interned there.
We wont be going back until next March/April as my wife is currently in hospital in the UK.

Thanks for pointing out the error. I tried to use the new transcription feature and it doesn't seem to be working right. I deleted the duplicate and am in the process of going back over these to make sure they are correct.

I added a picture of their grave stone, a close up so you can read the inscription clearly. Not sure if you are interested but I see you left flowers on one of the memorials. Barry
