|Bio and Links|
"Memories of You" was a pop song published in 1930 (lyrics by Andy Razaf; music by Eubie Blake). It was best popularized by the incomparable Benny Goodman and his orchestra. My Dad used to practice it at home on his clarinet when I was a kid, though I never knew what it was called back then, and didn't know the lyrics. Now every time I hear that tune, it brings back my memories of those happy days, and memories of my father and other loved ones gone ahead.|
It's been said that no one is finally dead until he is forgotten. Another thought along these lines runs: You are not really dead until after your name is spoken aloud on earth for the last time.
At every gravesite, no matter how old, how poorly marked, how long forgotten, there lies the memory of a precious life lived with a beginning, a middle, an end, and a story worth telling and remembering. Each tombstone marks a significant day of human sorrow. And around most every tombstone was once gathered the unbreakable force of love.
Findagrave and its volunteers are here to respect those memories and to help keep those individual stories and names alive, whenever possible. Each memorial made here is for one more person who is gone but not forgotten.
Turn Again To Life
by Mary Lee Hall
If I should die and leave you here awhile
be not like others sore undone,
who keep long vigil by the silent dust.
For my sake turn again to life and smile,
nerving thy heart and trembling hand
to do something to comfort others than mine.
Complete these dear unfinished tasks of mine
and I perchance may therein comfort you.

Hi ! I found you on this site while researching my gr. gr. grandfather, Edward Richards who was married to Eliza Emery.
According to my research on Eliza, your Catharine Watson Emery and James Emery were her parents. That documentation is on her death certificate. Would LOVE to know if you have any pictures or additional info on her. She is also buried in the same section as her parents and first husband, John Moyer who she married in 1868 at the Putnam Presbyterian Church. She married my gr.gr. grandfather in 1878 at the same church. She was his third wife and they had two children. Her headstone is marked Eliza Moyer Richards. Would love to hear from you. Thank you. Lynne My email is email@example.com.

I have found two entries for this cemetery for Ellen Eudora Walraven, this one you created in 2008 and another done in 2014. I have not found an entry for her sister Virginia (Gennie/Jennie) Lee Pitts Walraven who I believe was buried in this cemetery in 1941. Do you have a way of finding out if her listing was omitted or somehow confused with her sister's? The two sisters married brothers. Thank you for your help.
