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.

"Tonight, when you look up, don't think of them as stars but as porch lights, knowing your loved one is safely home," Author Unknown

RE: find a grave Sample Cemetery
I do not know the exact location of the Sample cemetery. I am going to Vevay next weekend to visit my sisters and if I have time I will go and see if I can find it. I have been told that they may have just used rocks for the headstones, but I am hopeful that I can find it.

Abraham Wise @ Clinton Grove Cemetery in Mt. Clemens
You left a message that there was no headstone, but I found one and added to Abraham's profile. I was waiting for other photo requests @ CG or in the area before I made a car trip and I was also on vacation. So, I'm not sure why you asked the staff to escort you to the plot when I had claimed the photo request? I never ask the staff for help unless I have family permission and get stumped. I have all of the maps for Clinton Grove which are also on-line so there is no need to ask for help. I parked adjacent to the plot as I knew exactly where Sec. A-310 is located. Many cemeteries & Twp & City Offices will limit the amount of look-up requests in a day or refuse to help, so please be careful not to jeopardize & burn them out and search on your own.

Alice Mounts Sample
I was at find a grave and saw your posting of my grand aunt Alice. Aunt Alice's sister Rosa Pearl Mounts Wright was my grandmother. Pearl's son Rex was my dad. If you are interested in information on the Mounts family and some family pictures I would be happy to share. You can contact me at grfamily2006@yahoo.com Ruby wright Churchill

No, not related, I inherited a slew of obits and memorial cards when my dad's cousin died. Email me at p_hapanowicz at hotmail.com and I will reply with a copy. Happy to get it to the family.
