Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy contributing to Find A Grave. It's a great way to create a permanent memorial of our family, friends and loved ones.

I will be happy to transfer memorials to a family member or friend. If you find mistakes or duplications, please let me know so I can correct them.

God Bless You All,

Please stop by and visit my Dad and leave flowers if you like.


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.

McKinstry and Robertson

I really apreciate the transfers and for promptly entering links. My greatgrandmother was a McKinstry from Pennsylvania and I have been researching the family for almost 40 years.

After moving to Gainesville, I discovered there were McKinstrys here and have been researching the family and find them very interesting.

Again Thanks for the transfers and all the good work you do for Find A Grave.

Thank you!
Hey Vera, I hope you're having a wonderful day. I appreciate the Deen transfers, though I can't imagine why you'd send them to me. But I appreciate them nonetheless.

Thank you so much for the transfers. I've been trying to add a little to the families' biography as well as connect them with most of their people who were in the Wilson Co. TN area after their migration from Clark Co. KY. I appreciate all the diligent work you've done in documenting and photographing the memorials.
