THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY|
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN
Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other 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.

|Pat||RE: Agnes Hallihan|
Thank you for the information. I was photographing graves and the grounds keeper suggested that I use a low bleach to water solution on the gravestones. I had no idea it could cause harm. Thanks for all you do. Pat

Hello: You have posted a photo of my great-grand aunt's grave in St. Patrick's Cemetery, Brasher Falls, NY. It is memorial no 88506654. She is listed as Agnes Hallihan. I can't read the grave stone. Would it be possible for you to put some bleach solution on the stone to remove the moss and such and re-photograph it? Thanks. Pat

Thank you so much for the family headstone pictures. However, I noticed that John's got mixed up with Ovila J. Sigouin's.
