We are the chosen. In each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts, but instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the storytellers of the tribe.

Lord, help me dig into the past
And sift the sands of time,
That I might find the roots that made
This family tree of mine.
Lord, help me trace the ancient roads
On which my father’s trod,
And led them through so many lands
To find our present sod.
Lord, help me find an ancient book
Or dusty manuscript,
That’s safely hidden now away
In some forgotten crypt.
Lord, let it bridge the gap that haunts
My soul when I can’t find,
The missing link between some name
That ends the same as mine.

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.
Author Unknown
*************************************
Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.

Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.

Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds –
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.

Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.

Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we’d all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.

Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.

Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

“This cemetery was set aside on the original homestead of John Tudor III. His first wife Martha Searcy is the earliest recorded burial, but there could be earlier lost stones. His 2nd wife Frances Phillips Tudor is also probably buried here.

John was born in Virginia and the Tudor family migrated to North Carolina, and from there John and at least eight siblings came to Kentucky, most staying in Madison county.

John and Martha Searcy Tudor are my 5X great-grandparents. Everyone buried in this cemetery is directly related to John and Martha.

Susannah Tudor Long is the daughter of John and Martha’s son John Hooker Tudor. Sometime after she married Perry Long, the old homestead came to their ownership and most of the burials here are some of their 13 children. I am trying now to link the remainder.

The Hendren children are Susan and Perry Long’s grandchildren through their daughter Georgia Ann, who married Squire Hendren.

Margaret Jane Tudor Bogie is another of John and Martha Tudor’s granddaughters. She is the daughter of their son Morris H Tudor and she married David T Bogie.

If you are related to anyone in this cemetery, then you are also related, by either blood or marriage, to just about everyone in old Madison County.” source: Gerald Tudor, 8/15/2010

Mary May <i>Haupert</i> Palen

Thanks to Leonard Greenwood, I now have a photo of Leopold & Mary Palen’s headstone. Thanks so much, Leonard.

“Today (August 21, 2012), my Mom, Virginia (Palen) Long, became the longest-living Palen in the family tree. She surpassed May “Mary” Haupert Palen by one day today. My Mom actually knew May, her Great Grandmother. May used to have Mom sit at her feet and tell her stories about riding a covered wagon all the way to Caledonia, Minnesota. She also told her how the Indians sometimes would ride into town and scare the women. May, who was quite brave, helped care for the squaws and their babies. Its remarkable that Mom knew someone who was born in 1844! Mom’s memory is very short these days, but she’s outstanding when she reminisces about things that happened in her childhood!”
