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.

RE: James W. Gattis
Wish I could about the rain. I hear you all need it. We have had too much here.
In all of your searching, maybe another pair of eyes is needed. I had a great grandmother named Rosella Oltman 03-13-1881 and died 09-02-1968. She is the mother of Virginia you have listed and is buried in Lakeside Cemetery in Pekin, IL.
She married John Wesley Huffman 11-21-1897 and was married for about 44 years before they divorced. John Wesley Huffman is Virginia's dad.
Rosella remarried Herbert Spencer. I am trying to find out for sure who Rosella's mom and dad were because I have errors in my information and need to fix.
Any ideas on this? I knew my great grandmother but never ever had occasion to ask her when she was alive. PS I am 60 myself.
