CHANGES & CORRECTIONS & REQUEST FOR TRANSFERS
If you want corrections made please use the EDIT tab. It makes it a lot easier to go to the site and make changes.
If the memorial number is not included in the correction request, there is no guarantee the changes will be made.
If you see some of your kin and would like to manage the memorial let me know and I'll be glad to release it to you.
I am not concerned about the number of memorials I manage.
I am very concerned about accuracy.
I don't know who wrote this poem but how true it is.
THE CEMETERY PHOTOGRAPHER
Wandering among the stones I see
The stones so weathered and worn
‘Tis difficult to find the date
On which the babe was born
I stare at the stone and am struck with awe
At the life that I knew was gone
This was someone's child, a babe so sweet
With loved ones to carry on
So I take a photo for all to see
For the family that remains
An everlasting memory of
A child of God's domain
I brush the weeds back from the stone
And say a silent prayer
For the babes that had no chance to live
And for mothers everywhere
The dove calls out it's mourning song
Among the stones so still
Echoes of the woes, through time
The choirs of despair
The stone will someday perish
The flowers will be gone
But a photo now remains of this
Their memory lives on!
And so my friend, don't hesitate
To film the weathered stone
Those who live within your hearts
Are never truly gone
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.

|Kurt Lau||RE: Elizabeth Akin|
James, you are quite welcome for the grave photo of Elizabeth (Eliza) Akins (1835-1901). I'm glad that I was able to fulfill that request for you as well as the others. I am a little surprised that this grave wasn't photographed before by Craig & Tonya Banks back in 2011 when they photographed most of the other graves in Olliff Cemetery. Best regards, Kurt

|David Rigdon||RE: William Rigdon|
You are welcome. I have more to enter. Spent a day in Pittsburgh two weeks ago, visted 6 cemeteries and stood next to 6 of my direct family, back to William my 4th great-grandfather.
James, I had posted a request photo for Betty Rigdon, who is buried with Gilbert Rigdon but then realized the name on it was U. Waneta b July 16, 1931. I deleted it thinking I must have the wrong person. Would this happen to be the same person? If so, I'll put the picture back on. I'm so sorry but when I did this, it took the request off. Thanks for your help. Judy

|Lisa Callaway McClain||RE: William Gamblin|
You are so welcome! We are going back to the cemetary once again so many unmarked and not able to read many. ...next within the blocked in area next to William Lee was another infant, Curtis Lee, 1846. There were 4 headstones all Gamblin, I believe...either way they all had the same flowers recently left at the headstones.
P.S. also if you need a better picture, I can take more. The inscription at the bottom didn't show well...the photo of it was too zoomed in.
|Louis Roth||RE: Jennie Rigdon|
did you see the caption?
happy to remove if you like
|Kelly Ratterree||RE: Judy Johnson|
You are welcome. I would gladly do whatever you like to the picture. I'm viewing it as straight forward on the website. Are you wanting it rotated to see Judy's name from the side?
|Stones Calling||RE: George Thomas Gamblin|
Yes, I am related. George Thomas Gambling's sister Satarah Elizabeth is my grandmother.

Dear Mr. Gamblin,
May I have your permission to use your photos of Earl E. Jackson's gravestones in my blog, http://abt-unk.blogspot.com? I am doing a post about Corporal Jackson for a project on Air Force weathermen who died in service of this country.
Thank you in advance,
Amanda Pape aka riofriotex
