CEMETERIES



DEAR ANCESTOR:

YOUR TOMBSTONE STANDS AMONG THE REST
NEGLECTED AND ALONE.
THE NAME AND 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.

BY TRISH LEWIS
DARTMOUTH, NOVA SCOTIA
CANADA


The words on the right are inscribed on the stone of John Dague (on the left) in Bethlehem Cemetery near
Washington, PA. He was the son of Frederick (our ancestor) and the husband of Catherine Horn. He died September 9, 1838.

DO NOT MOURN WHILST I DEPART
LET ALL YOUR SORROWS FLEE
I AM GOING TO ETERNAL JOY
WHILE YOU ARE STILL IN DANGER HERE
I GOE BEFORE YOU FOLLOW ON
BEHOLD HOW WE'LL REJOICE
WHEN GOD FROM EVERY SORROW HERE
IN BLISS SHALL MAKE US FREE.

Alexander Fennell was one of the witnesses to Jacob Weekley's will (our ancestor). He along with kin are buried in the Fennell Cemetery on the Old Remount Station South of Front Royal, VA. I am not sure if you can get into the site. I have some pictures which I hope to post later on.
