The living come with grassy tread|
To read the gravestones on the hill;
The graveyard draws the living still,
But never anymore the dead.
The verses in it say and say:
"The ones who living come today
To read the stones and go away
Tomorrow dead will come to stay."
So sure of death the marbles rhyme,
Yet can't help marking all the time
How no one dead will seem to come.
What is it men are shrinking from?
It would be easy to be clever
And tell the stones: Men hate to die
And have stopped dying now forever.
I think they would believe the lie.

What is your source for the W. L. C. tombstone that you say is William Copeland's tombstone?
I am related to a Jesse Britton (~1751-~1841). I have found information indicating he is buried in the Britton Family Cemetery, near New Hope Church, Lasker, NC. I had assumed this was what I found on-line as New Hope United Methodist Cemetery, now "signed" as Pin Hook Cemetery. But in the Find-A-Grave records I do not see a Jesse Britton listed for this cemetery. Do you have any knowledge of a Jesse Britton grave, or a possible separate Britton Family Cemetery?
I think perhaps #120390127 is a duplicate of # 120390119. Thanks for all your submissions.

Thank you for all your hard work in all you do, to get information out to families, on findagrave.com.
You must have worked on the overgrown graveyard at the Baggett-Joynor-Minton graveyard.
This is the family graveyard of Nathan Baggett. My grand parents are William Cleveland Nelson and Addie Mae Baggett. Addie was the daughter of John Thomas Baggett, Sr and a "Sallie" Parker.
I have been away from North Carolina since 1956, as I was only 11 years old at the time.
May have more information for you if you would like to receive for other family members searching for their relatives. And yes, it is my understanding that both William and Addie are both buried at the Nathan Baggett family graveyard, along with their son, Raymond Dore Nelson; I am named after this relative, my mother's brother.
There was another graveyard out in the middle of a field closeby, that apparently has been moved, close to the Nathan graveyard. Are you aware of such a graveyard being moved from that area?
Thank you so much, again for all you do to help others. Only regret I cannot assist to physically help take care of my ancestors final resting place. I am now 68 years old.

Yes, I live in Murfreesboro.
Can you give me some directions to the Vinson-Parker Cemetery in Hertford County? Thank you.
|Rita Osborne||RE: Duplicate|
Per your message below. I was just letting you know that you had created a duplicate.
Normally I would delete duplicate, this is my grandfather, and I have all his links in place.
Woodland Cemetery, Andrew M Futrell.

The words are not available for me to express the gratitude for the efforts you've made to expose the sunken/lost stones for those once buried in this old cemetery. Now that you've documented those names/dates, eventually there will be one of the few that are actually interested in seeking their relatives (those who made it possible for us to be here today).
I have done the same thing here in southwest Louisiana, and had a rare handful of them to contact me to show their gratitude. They had no idea where they had ever been buried, but can now see a very old stone. My relatives (back to my 6th & 7th great grandfather) first settled in North Carolina after they had come from England. So with gratitude, I say Thank You, ever so much. Charles T. Baggett

I am related to Roland B Hill, the husband of the Liverman's daughter.
Do you live in N.C.?
