THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN

Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where others 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.

Thank you for transcribing and documenting this cemetery. I've been looking for Cornelia and finally able to start connecting her to her family. Thank you for taking the great photo and being a Find A Grave volunteer.

RE: Elmer Flingstrom
I don't think the family/parents you are probably loooking at in Minnesota is the correct one for this Elmer George Fingstrom. That entire family stayed in Minnesota and died there. Elmer George was living in Los Angeles CA by the 1930 census. The 1900 census in Minneapolis, MN for Andrew "Flinkstrom" and wife Ellen (Pearson) does not list a son named George or Elmer, only a son Ernest Alfred. The WWI Draft Registration Card on my Elmer George Flingstrom confirms his birth date as 21 Sept 1894, so he would be listed on the 1900 census if he was part of that family. Wrong parents/family.

RE: Elmer Flingstrom
By the way, do you have info on who his other wives were? Thanks. Not having much luck on the Flingstrom line.

RE: Elmer Flingstrom
Thamks, I was thinking he might be somewhere in Los Angeles County as well, but so far no luck finding him there either. The memorial will service as a tribute for now, until/unless a confirmed gravesite is found. It does say in the memorial that the site is unconfirmed. Linking this way often catches the attention of someone with info to share; I hve had success with that in the past. Will update if new info emerges.

Harms
Thanks for uploading the Harms headstone photo at Fairhaven Cemetery. I just created 2 additional memorial pages for this family group and submitted photo requests. These two are probably nearby at Fairhaven, or possibly at the Lutheran section of the cemetery. Your help is appreciated if you have the time, otherwise another volunteer might pick them up. Thanks again.
