I am trying to add a pictorial record for our local cemeteries before they are lost forever. I see so many unmarked graves or unreadable headstones. They will be lost forever! Remember your past generations!

I want to thank all who send in corrections/additions for the memorials I have created. I will make the corrections as soon as possible. Please use the edit tab on the memorial.

The Story Tellers.....Unknown Author

We are the chosen. My feelings are in each family there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. To me, doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the story tellers of the tribe. All tribes have one. We have been called as it were by our genes. Those who have gone before cry out to us: Tell our story. So, we do. In finding them, we somehow find ourselves. How many graves have I stood before now and cried? I have lost count. How many times have I told the ancestors you have a wonderful family you would be proud of us? How many times have I walked up to a grave and felt somehow there was love there for me? I cannot say. It goes beyond just documenting facts. It goes to who am I and why do I do the things I do? It goes to seeing a cemetery about to be lost forever to weeds and indifference and saying I can't let this happen. The bones here are bones of my bone and flesh of my flesh. It goes to doing something about it. It goes to pride in what our ancestors were able to accomplish. How they contributed to what we are today. It goes to respecting their hardships and losses, their never giving in or giving up, their resoluteness to go on and build a life for their family. It goes to deep pride that they fought to make and keep us a Nation. It goes to a deep and immense understanding that they were doing it for us. That we might be born who we are. That we might remember them. So we do. With love and caring and scribing each fact of their existence, because we are them and they are us. So, as a scribe called, I tell the story of my family. It is up to that one called in the next generation to answer the call and take their place in the long line of family storytellers. That, is why I do my family genealogy, and that is what calls those young and old to step up and put flesh on the bones.

Gerald Allen
Herman Roberson at Mount Zion, Homer, LA
I believe that according to the obituary you posted for this person states that he was from Lisbon, Arkansas. I have been taking pictures of graves in Mount Zion Cemetery near Homer, Louisiana, and I cannot find him buried here. Please see if he needs to be moved to a Mount Zion Cemetery in Arkansas. Thanks, Gerald Allen

This memorial should be in a cemetery called Old Salem Cemetery. She in fact is the wife of Patrick Johnson Loftus. There is a picture of their grave stone at Old Salem Cemetery, so my suggestion is to delete this memorial because actually it is a duplicate and then add your flowers to her memorial at the number that I have given you? Please?
Thank you.
Just for your information, none of the McMullen or Loftus members are buried at Gloster, they are buried at Old Salem Cemetery and a few scattered here and there. Cullen we do not know his burial date but we have found out that he died Oct 1853, possibly in Bossier Parish, LA where his son Mark was living at the time. Harriet, Dempsey and Mary and Elizabeth should also be moved to the Old Salem Cemetery because All Saints Episcopal Church Cemetery and Old Salem Cemetery butt up against one another so they are often confused with no lines drawn now. Also they are not at Gloster. Thanks, Melody

Bethlehem Cemetery
I was in Union County, Arkansas in June 2013, and by mistake took photos of all this graveyard. Tonight I added them to the site. If I messed up any let me know. I have some that I can't figure out what is written on them. After halfway through I realized none of my people were here but finished anyway.
Sorry if I messed anything up.
