I am researching the Vosper family tree from my g.g.g grandfather John Vosper, born about 1822, who in 1854 was living in West Street,Millbrook, St. Germans, Cornwall, England. He was listed in the census of 1861 as being a Seaman R.N. and at that time he was living in Greenock, Scotland along with his wife Elizabeth Manning and their three sons. william born in 1846, seveons born in 1849 and john elliott born in 1856
Any information would be appreciated. I am also willing to share the information that I have.
a letter to my ancestor's
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.
