Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in Rockcastle County Ky.I have always been interested in Cemeteries.I find it very peaceful roaming through them wondering about the people buried there.I have made some interesting discoveries doing this.If anyone finds any errors I have made please feel free to let me know and I will be more than happy to correct them.If possible. Here is a couple of poems I came across that I would love to share.

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

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.

RE: Your Ancestry
Margaret,

Still would like to discuss your family ancestry ties do believe we are related on a few sides. I work daily with Shirley Hammons Smith who is cousin on getting all the Noe's, Hysinger's, Ponder's, Helton's, Owens, Howard's and Osborne's identified and provide as much info as possible and link everyone together.

# 101490881 Roger McQueen
Hi Margaret. I have been working on the little Ball Cemetery (on the farm now owned by Tommy Harold Mink off Purr Rigsby Road) and I believe Roger McQueen is buried at the Briarfield Cemetery (also known as the Ball Cemetery)since he was a member of the Maple Grove Church. The other Ball Cemetery is very small and not in very good shape. I am going back out there the 1st week in July to get some pictures and also to get the names of some Smith's who are buried there but not listed on findagrave.

# 101490881 Robert McQueen
Hi again. You m,ust work at this all the time and I think that is fantastic. I was looking at the Ball Cemetery again today because I took my grandmother there when I was a teenager but she never told me who we were visiting. I was there 2 years ago but there were no new graves at that time. It was in fairly good shape at that time but nothing to brag about. Did Mr. McQueen live in that area, or do you know? It just surprised me that someone would want to be buried there now. I noticed in his obituary you added that he is from Kings Mtn . which is just a short distance from me. I go thru' there quite often. The last time I was there, someone had been buried in a special plot and that little area was fenced and nicely kept, but I forgot who that was. I need to go back out there. And there are several
Smith's buried there (No relation to me) but they have tombstones. However, none of them are listed on findagrave. The Pruitts that are listed had stones, but most of them are laying out in the cow pasture and have been trampled on by cattle thru the years. But when I took my grandmother, Ida Mae (Livesay) Hysinger there almost 60 years ago it was in good shape.
