I was born and raised in Rockcastle County Ky.I have always been interested in Cemeteries.I find it very peaceful roaming through them wondering about the people buried there.I have made some interesting discoveries doing this.If anyone finds any errors I have made please feel free to let me know and I will be more than happy to correct them.If possible. Here is a couple of poems I came across that I would love to share.|
THE CEMETERY PHOTOGRAPHER
Wandering among the stones I see
The stones so weathered and worn
‘Tis difficult to find the date
On which the babe was born
I stare at the stone and am struck with awe
At the life that I knew was gone
This was someone's child, a babe so sweet
With loved ones to carry on
So I take a photo for all to see
For the family that remains
An everlasting memory of
A child of God's domain
I brush the weeds back from the stone
And say a silent prayer
For the babes that had no chance to live
And for mothers everywhere
The dove calls out it's mourning song
Among the stones so still
Echoes of the woes, through time
The choirs of despair
The stone will someday perish
The flowers will be gone
But a photo now remains of this
Their memory lives on!
And so my friend, don't hesitate
To film the weathered stone
Those who live within your hearts
Are never truly gone
THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
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.

I wasn't offended by the death certificate. I was just concerned that someone might steal it and create all kinds of problems for his family.

I was looking at Jeremiah's memorial and noticed that you had added his death certificate. His social security number is clearly visible. I would think that it should be omitted.

Thank you so much, Margaret!

I notice that you are the photographer of the headstone for Arthur (5401804) and Bertha (5401803).
Would you please permit me to upload the picture to my Ancestry.com tree? They are related to my husband's side of the family.
Thank you for all you have done for Find A Grave! It certainly helps people like me!
