THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY|
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN
Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other 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.

There was an Israel Dewey buried near your Justin and Louisa requests, I uploaded that one as well. And there is one that sort of looks like Harriett, daughter of Justin? But I can't read it that well. You can have any of these records if you like.

Hi Melissa. No not related but have ancestors in the area and work on several peripheral families. Yes it is a very cool, peaceful cemetery in rural Vermont. Beautiful resting place.

Thanks for taking this photo.
|Donna Davenport||Thank you|
I also posted the poem on my Facebook for those interested. Mostly those interested in genealogy. My lines also are Arthur Aylsworth, George Gardner, and Simon Stone. Since you have relatives from my area, do you connect to any of those? They intertwined alot as you know.
|CHerr||RE: Edna Scouten|

|Donna Davenport||Re Neff cemetery|
Hello, I really have no idea where the Neff cemetery is located. Sorry. The Neffs I have found are in the Butternut Valley Cemetery near the early Reed family. The Reeds are my line and Amoret Reed married into the Neff family. Hmmm, I'm rather glad your relative beat Cooper. I'm sure you have read about what he did to Jedediah Peck. I lost all respect for Cooper for that horrible deal. Peck did alot of good promoting education. I'm doing well, thankfully. Hope you are also.
