Dear Ancestor,
Your tombstone stands among the rest, neglected and alone,
The name, the date, are chiseled out in weather-beaten stone.
It reaches out for all to see, it is too late to mourn,
You did not know I would exist, you died and I was born.
Yet each of us are part of you, in flesh, in blood, in bone,
And in my breast there beats a pulse entirely not my 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.

We welcome photos of headstones relating to our families.

 
Alphabetically arranged according to Family name at the time of death.
Therefore, a married female will be listed with the husband's surname rather than her maiden name.
Where possible, we will include the maiden name, if known.

Corrections and additions are solicited and welcomed.
Please include source of information.
