Bio Photo "Dear Ancestor"
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and the 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 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.
Walter Butler Palmer (1868-1932)

Lee Oscar Campbell 53649955
Hi Vicky - thank you for posting the photo of Lee's burial location and the photo including his name and dates of birth and death. Lee was my grandmother's twin brother. I never knew him, but my mother and I share his first name as our middle names. The extra effort it took to find his unmarked grave is appreciated more than I know how to tell you. warm regards from Vermont - Deb

Hi Vicky!
I'm pretty sure she is my family. Forgot where I saw something on her, but I'm checking & I'm getting her headstone photo. Just couldn't make out the birthday for the weeds, but I will. I'm sad to see I'm not a friend on Find A Grave. :( Boo-hoo. lol! Anyway, my Cuz is going to get me a picture. He has it on a video, but that was all. Are you going up for the powwow this weekend? I couldn't.
Take care Vicky!
LY gf!

I am not related. I am just adding information to memorials from the newspapers I have found.

Mitchell & LaCroix Families
My husband is part of these families. His paternal grandmother was Rose Lillie Mitchell. Where did you get all the information on Charles Mitchell I? We are planning on making a trip to Bloomsfield Nebraska, my father-in-law was born there & of course a lot of the family is buried. Can you think of anything we should know, see, or do while we are there.
Thank you for all your work.
