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.

I have obtained my uncle's obituary and would like to include on his page. How do I do that? I want to be sure I do not change anything else. Thank you, Sue Goodwin Best

Red: I was doing research for cousins of a cousin! No problem of transferring Geo. memorial to you. Found several of his decendants, trying to link all them up, and see your name on several. Just trying to help, mean no harm. Annette, 48477351.

I am the great-great-great granddaughter of B. Talphase Ernandez for whom you have created a memorial. His daughter, Cynthia Solie Ernandez Tidwell Gladden, was my great-great grandmother. Her daughter, Mattie Tidwell Boulware, was my great-grandmother. Mattie's son, Clinton Maxwell Boulware, was my grandfather. Mac's only child, Margaret Anne Boulware Bryant, is my mom. I am interested in locating and communicating with relatives. Are you related to this family in any way or did you just create the memorial? Do you know how to contact any of the descendants?

Are you still doing research on Joseph "Joel" Warren 1790 Spotsylvania County, Virginia, USA. I could have a connection. Nancy Lee
