Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please feel free to use any of the headstone pictures that we have posted...no credit is necessary. A recently read quote states, "It is amazing how much people can get done if they do not worry about who gets the credit." There is so much work to be done and so few doing the work. So, with that in mind...Let's get it done!

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 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.

Lewis Richard Lantz is my great uncle. Do you have any additional info on Rhoda or Richard. I ask because of the reference to her health condition.

RE: Miriam Simmons Hemsley
Thank you for the information you sent me. I have been trying to find out where Miriam and Edward were married as it had been written that they wed on the 'Manchester. and others say no. Miriam and Georges sister Mary Ann came over first in 1860 and that is an amazing story! This year, I am putting on a 'Pioneer day' on July 25th in our ward on a members farm with all the stories I can gather so if you can help I would be truly grateful!
I am also hoping to come back to Utah this Nov/Dec and having already met up with some family members, would love to meet up with you if this would be convenient.
My e-mail address is: Barneybear22@btinternet.com.
Once again..Thank you so very much for getting in touch with me.

RE:John Albert Bloomquist
Please correct Memorial name so that it reflects the name on headstone....Blomquist. That way those that want to search for John Albert Blomquist can find him here on the Find A Grave website. Thank you.

Cook ancestors
I've made the transfers you've requested. Nothing thrills me more than to transfer ancestors to their family. If you come across any more that I have, just let me know and I'll transfer them to you. This is the reason I posted these memorials in the first place...so their ancestors (like you) can find them!!

God bless you and your family,

RE: King
You are welcome. If u run across any more, just drop me a line. Most of the markers I maintain were made by a old friend, Linda Furr, and she has since passed. She only wanted the markers maintained and if family came along, to pass on to them. So I am happy to pass memorials to family members and they don't have to be within the guidlines set by Find A Grave. Even is they are a distant cousin by marriage, I will transfer them. Happy hunting.
