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.

RE: Anna Stamp
I wondered what that was! We find the strangest things in cemeteries, don't we?! Needless to say, thank you so much for getting this photo for me. This person has been a mystery for quite a while! Thanks!

Hello,

Do you have any other information about this person? If it is the one I'm thinking of, she was born November 7, 1900. She married someone named Pearlman or Perleman, I think. If it is the one I'm looking for, she was the daughter of James Mason Story and Harriet Ann Ferrell, from Nebraska. Thank you.

RE: Girtons
You're welcome. The Girton headstones were very worn and hard to read.
