OTHNIEL LOOKER'S Violated Headstone
Posted by: Judy Hudson (ID *****0495) Date: September 17, 2012 at 09:31:52

To The Person Who Took Othniel's Picture:

Othniel Looker's resting place is right across the street from my home...Many times I walk across the street to stand among the Rev War Soldiers who are buried there.
The 1st time I visited this cemetery there was a picture of Othniel on his headstone...A couple of weeks ago on my walk, the picture was gone...Today I found out that a person (I won't say Gentleman) was inquiring as to the location of Othniel's burial site...A day later it was discovered the picture was gone from his stone...To this person who violated his stone and removed the picture; It saddens me that your self-centered, and selfish ways have deprived Family Historians, and many others the opportunity of seeing and photographing his picture...That you have the nerve to call yourself a Genealogy Enthusiast, a Family Historian, a History Buff, or a Caring Person...None of which you can consider yourself to be...Be aware that as soon as I can find out who to report this act of vandalism to I will do so...Hopefully you follow GenForum and you will see this post...and maybe have the decency say "I am sorry" to all of the researchers and especially to the descendants of Othniel Looker...Hopefully someday you will feel some remorse and return this picture to its rightful place...The one thing I don't hope for is that we share some family line...I applogize to all GenForum followers for my rant but maybe others can pass the word along and let this j*#@as know his act has not gone unnoticed. If some one can tell me who and where this can be reported to other than the police, please let me know.
