Bio Photo 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. . .

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.

I have requested that the duplicate memorial be deleted. Find a Grave has to approve it since I didn't set it up. I'm sure it was an oversight because Don was very careful when he set up a memorial. I don't know about the picture he posted so I will have to research that. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

William F Jenkins
Thank you for the beautiful memorial you have created for William F Jenkins at Pine Grove Cemetery,Eatonton,Putnam Co. Georgia. Do you know if the marker had information about his Regiment, as he was a Confederate soldier? I am researching the 12th Georgia Regiment, Georgia Infantry and think he may have been a member of it.

James Pearson Boyer
Hi Patti,
Would you be so kind as to remove one of the photos for James Pearson Boyer - # 14000160 - perhaps the overall grave yard photo? I have a Portrait I want to add to his memorial, but it says he has reached his maximum # of photos.
Kind regards

RE: Saw Dust Cemetery, Greene County, Georgia
Not sure why i didn't include all dates - will check on it. Just a request. Would you please not duplicate pictures - if I have already added them? Thanks, Nancy

Memorial (with photos) deleted per your request. I deleted it before I realized the original memorial didn't have photos of the tombstone or of his stone at the veterans memorial in Irvington. I didn't keep copies. The original memorial also should be to linked to his parents Oscar and Hesse Conner Bramlett. I apologize if this caused confusion.

Hi Patty,

I think this came from my Great Aunt Leila Blanche Bess' WPA Writers Project from the 1930s.
