Bio and Links
Bio Photo Early December:
The morning fog fades from the foot
of the rising hills where crows watch;
silent, ragged sentinels in the trees,
keeping vigil over the dead.

Below, the stones lie quiet,
unmoved by coming storms: Peaceful.
Rest in peace, they say :
“He is at peace now”, rest in peace.
And some who lie here indeed may,
may rest after long full lives …
goodbyes said, no regrets. In peace.

And yet …
There is a shiver of sound here,
just beyond the edge of hearing;
an endless murmur as of distant sleepers,
caught in unquiet dreams,
under the winter-browning grass -
restless beneath the weight of unlived years.

More than two decades ago my mother showed me a notebook she used when she was in high school to record some family history. I've been working on our genealogy ever since. Most of my research involves French Canadian and New England families, as well as my husband's Ohio German and Ukrainian roots.

I love the opportunity that Find A Grave offers for helping others find the missing pieces of their family "puzzles".

Please feel free to use any photo I have taken in on-line or personal family trees. It would be nice if you would credit me for the photo.

If a memorial I have added is a family member of yours, I am happy to transfer management. I will also usually transfer out of FAG guidelines if there is a good reason. Please ask politely. I do not respond well to nastiness.

I am happy to receive edits but please do not ask me to post obituaries unless you wrote them, hold the copyright, or have explicit permission from the writer. This is against Find A Grave policies. Feel free to write a bio yourself paraphrasing the information, but I will remove references to living individuals in most cases for privacy reasons.

Please use the edit tab for corrections and transfer requests, it heads off a lot of potential problems.

PLEASE - No drama.

Mary Walker in Albany Rural Cemetery
There are two different memorials created by you for MARY WALKER both listed as being in the same plot: Sec 84, Lot 103 yet with two different dates of death 2 Sep 1872 and 20 Mar 1873

Can you please clarify or post photos if you have them I am searching for one of my relatives and believe this could be the one who was the first wife of Amos Walker

Thank you!
