Bio Photo Please feel free to use any of the headstone pictures that we have posted...no credit is necessary. A recently read quote states, "It is amazing how much people can get done if they do not worry about who gets the credit." There is so much work to be done and so few doing the work. So, with that in mind...Let's get it done!

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.

Thanks so much, Simmons Family, for the transfer. I was able to fill in a lot of personal information on Robert and Catherine's family.
Much appreciated,

RE: Stromerson
Good news! I found the obituary for Harry & where he is buried, along with Leone. Will be getting the photos within the next week & posting them. Let you know when & where after I'm done. : )

Stromerson requests-Fresno
I called Fresno Memorial Gardens twice checking for their grave locations. Nothing was found though we checked alternate spellings for the surname & the interment book for the work orders for their burials. The office lady said they did not have anyone with a surname starting with Strom...
Having a transcription of Mountain View Cemetery, I checked their records-nothing.
What made you think Fresno Memorial Gardens was their cemetery??? Did you have a death certificate or obituary???
Could they have been buried in South Dakota or Idaho?
If I can, I'll try to find an obituary for Harry at the library to find place of burial.

RE: Tolley & Head
Hi Darline ~ I've transferred the infant's record to your care. I had wondered if Auldra had married someone with the surname Head. The plot view shows them all in the same Tolley family plot.
I wonder if the Village/Town of Mountain View would be able to help answer your questions re the cemetery.
Thanks again for your kind words, I've been helped by several people along the 'genealogy' road & am happy to be able to help others where I can.

Charley and Polly
Hi Lorraine, I transferred Charley and Polly memorials to you. I added the info you had on Charley's page and I also sent in request to link Charley and Polly to add them as Thomas' 37052404 parents. Hope you have had a fun holiday weekend. Blessings, Debbie
