BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN (via Alice Huitt Preston)

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.

Hi Davis,
I saw a photo you posted for James Starling Kemp. Do you have any info you can share about the Kemps who lived west of Kennesaw Mt? If so, I will send an email.

Jane Armstrong McMichen
Hey, I am a descendant of Jane Armstrong McMichen. I saw that you had added a photo of her to the site. It looks like a family photo. I was curious if you had any idea where the photo came from, or time it was taken. Also, are you connected to her family? Thanks.

Marietta National Cemetery - William Stanley Seaton
Many thanks for getting the headstone for William onto Find A Grave. It is a great picture.

I wonder if you'd allow me to use the pic in the family research, with credit, of course?

You have posted quite an odd photo for this memorial that almost appears to be clip art. But that would be just silly. Could you caption the photo so that visitors will know how it relates? -Thank you.

RE: Wow...
The picture is up for Salis. The middle initial is a K on the stone. I think it should be a C for Cary.

Wrong photo
That is not a photo of my dad, SR Swanson. I don't know who it is.
