Time in my growing up territory this past month:
A visit to the grave side of my parents.
|Mom and Dad's grave marker|
The custom in this church grave yard often
has the children listed on the back side of the headstone.
|So there we are the four siblings- oldest to youngest.|
And then my grandparents are also here.
|Born just at the turn of the century and a bit beyond.|
|And great grandparents Fred and Marie|
Three generations all here in the same place.
There are many markers here with the name Graft.
This whole spot of land has mostly an additional handful of names:
Meyer, Werling, Bauermeister, Grewe. Witte,
Rekeweg and Scheumann.
Internet search tells the story of this parcel of land.
