Lake Sinclair, Putnam County, Georgia|
Welcome! Just to let you know, most of my family roots are in Kentucky; so, if related, I am more than happy to transfer the memorial pages I have created. I love to reunite families with their loved ones. If needed, feel free to use the photographs I have posted on Find A Grave for your personal ancestry documentation. If so inclined, you can always give credit for the source.
I stumbled upon the following poem and thought it was so succinct in describing why we do what we do. . .
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 hallowed 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.

Thanks so much for the find-a-grave photos of my great-grandmother Marguerite Walker, and her daughter. I would love to be able to actually visit the cemetery some time, but have not found good directions. Perhaps you could help.

I really do not mind doing edits, I do quite a few of them. . This cemetery I am really surprised how you are so sure where these people were born and where they died. I would assume they were all born in Ga but I am not going to do that. Before I accept any more please tell me your source for this info. I would be very surprised if you knew any of these folks.

That picture was taken in Cave Hill Cemetery, Louisville, KY.
If I can be of further service to you please let me know.

I really appreciate all your hard work and help. I think I have learned not to record someone else's transcription. Thanks, John
I have sent Peoples Funeral Home a request for the unreadable information on their internment information tag? I hope they will respond? They should still have the dates and information. I really need those dates. Just to let you know and to stay informed. Thanks again for your photos.
