***Remember that the absence of a death date does not mean the people are still alive. Nor does it mean that they are not. General rule is according to science if the date of birth is about 100 years previous to the current date that they are dead. If the date is 150 years previous then I assure you they aren't alive. It just means I have no idea when they died. *** Descendants of Hugh, William, and Richard Briggs are all related. They are brothers. I separated them so people can tell who, of the brothers, their direct line goes back to. Remember always, a headstone is not a tribute to someone's death, but rather a tribute and honor to a person who lived and loved. It is a reminder that no matter your station in life or your worldly goods you made a difference. ************************************* Charlie and Wade Calkins are cousins of mine and I will never let them be forgotten. This poem is beautiful. Come along with me and I will tell you a story... ___________________________________________________________________________ On January 31, 1855, from his home in Austerlitz, New York, Wade M. Calkins wrote this poem to his brother Charlie. Forget thee? - if to dream by night, and must on thee by day; Forget thee? - bid the freest birds forget their sweetest song! Forget thee? - bid the sea forget to swell beneath the moon! - bid the thirsty flowers forget to drink the e'er refreshing dew! thyself forget thine 'own dear land,' and its Prairies wild and blue; Forget each old familiar face, each long remembered spot; When these things are forgot by thee, Then thou shalt be forgot! Keep, if thou wilt, thy sullen peace, still calm and fancy free For God forbid thy gladsome heart should grow less glad for me; If these preserved for patient years, at last avail me not, Forget me then; - but ne'er believe That thou canst be forgot. *** from VOICES OF THE PRAIRIE LAND by Martin Litvin counter widget
