I discovered Find A Grave while doing genealogy research and have been promoting it ever since. I think it is a great way to remember family, friends, classmates, coworkers, and many others that have passed on. |
My genealogy blog listed below was a place to record a large amount of material left by an aunt and my grandmother. I also added more current obituaries of people from that area. It is called Butternut Valley Family History. Please find the URL below.
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.

Do you have access to Genealogy Bank? Her obituary is there, she was born 1/20/38. She married William 7/3/59. They have three kids, Matthew, Timothy and Rebecca. William passed away 2/15 07, he was cremated so no stone.

Thanks. I was researching his 2nd wife's family and found the information. My Bacons are out of Simsbury, CT and Hales from Massachusetts. I have DNA accounts at both Ancestry and FamilyTree DNA. My ancestry user name is kewilson and I have linked a tree to my DNA account. Let me know if you have any difficulty getting to it.
