We have been asked to take on the project of Updating the Cemetery books for Bladen Co.
That were published in 1989 by Wanda Campbell
All of the photograph's we add to FindaGrave have also been put on CD's to be given to the Bladen Historical Society.
We photograph requests for individuals and if time permits the entire cemetery.
I am the FindAGrave County Keeper for Bladen Co. NC, so if you have any questions or need any information on a cemetery in Bladen Co. I hope I can be of help to you.
THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN
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.

|kristy3629||Rich Cemetery on Gibbs Rd (Sampson County)|
I went out to Sampson County yesterday looking for the Rich cemetery and I could not find it. I rode up and down Gibbs Rd several times and did not see a cemetery from the road. Is there any extra information you have on the location that could help me find it? Is it behind a house or down a dirt road or anything like that?
Thanks so much!
|Angie||Otis James Barnes|
