Bio Photo THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY

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.

Thank you for posting my grandparents headstone. I live in Tennessee and is difficult to make it to Massena NY whenever I'd like.

Thanks so much for posting not only photos of headstones, but obituaries for family members. Very much appreciated, especially by those of us at some distance from Louisville.

RE: Axel
Hi Silentarcher99
Thanks for getting back in touch with me.
Axel Anderson that you took a picture of his grave stone is my Grandfather's nephew. The first time I went on Find A Grave there was on obit there. The second I went back two his grave site there was a Obit on Axel Anderson. It had his birth date which has the same as my Bror Axel Anderson.
I was really thrill when I was his Obit.
Now I have to find an Obit on his first wife Ann Anderson
I did find a Bombard family member on Ancestry.com and wrote to them.
I have to hear from them.
Thanks again for getting in touch with me.

Amanda " Mandna" Chesebrough - Reynolds
Hello, and Thank You very much for posting to FInd A Grave our 2nd Great Grandmother Amanda "Mandana" as she was fondly known locally, and to her immediate family.

I have posted all our personal family information pertaining to Mandana on her site. We were wondering if you would kindly consider transferring her Find A Grave site, as well as her husband, Henry's to us as their 2nd Great Grandson, Geoff and wife, Sharron who live close by the area.

Addie Shields, former Clinton Co. Historian for decades, and very close friend of ours use to visit our family's graves at the Shelter Cemetery because she also had family laid to rest there. The Shelter's were her ancestors.

Thank you for all the kind work you do so that others may find their ancestors. Your work is sincerely appreciated. Thank you for your kind consideration.

Respectfully, Geoff and Sharron Hewston
