Bio and Links
Bio Photo Finding the graves of ancestors can be an overwhelming challenge. What started out years ago as an innocent quest to find the graves of my grandparents has become my passion. Vacations often end up with side trips to libraries or cemeteries, camera in hand, documenting the final resting place of my ancestors and special people. It is my contribution to others who share the special connection to those who are gone, but not forgotten.

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.

Hi, Thanks for all you do.
I just sent you a sac email with information for his Bio that will answer many questions about Arch and his descendants.
When you can please check your email. It is an official paper for application of his Rev. War Pension made by my 4th great aunt, Elizabeth Jackson the second wife of Arch.
I found more info and will be sending that also in a separate email, being recordings from family records on his children.
Just a heads up to please check your email.
Thank you so much.

I am curious as to how you embed the hyperlinks into names in the bio section of your memorials. I would love to be able to do that. Regards. PMS Sillix sillix@aol.com

RE: Laura Jepsen Memorial Page
Appreciate the link, if you visit our website and go to the About Laura page you can see her genealogy going back 4 generations. The Maggie listed on the Find-a-Grave site is actually her Aunt, her mother passed away in 1955.

Dr. Laura Pauline Jepsen
My fiancee and I are researchers into the life and writings of Laura Jepsen. Some of the info on the site is incorrect, specifically information relating to her mother. If you could email us at contact@friendsoflaura.org, we would love to share the genealogy with you we have gotten from her family. Great work finding her pictures etc., remarkable stuff and thank you for doing it.
