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.

Hines Walker Robertson in Knupple Cem. in Hardin Co., TX
Homer,
My great Uncle Hines Walker Robertson has been an elusive relative. He was half-brother to my maternal grandfather, William Erastus "Ras" Robertson. They both were born in MS. Uncle Hines migrated to Jasper, TX and was lost to the family until he appeared at my home in Eddiceton, MS in early 1950 looking for my grandfather who was at that time visiting with us from his home in Pelahatchie, MS. Uncle Hines had been there and after finding him away from home, was directed to our home where Grandpa was visiting. Grandpa did not recognize Uncle Hines since he had been gone for so many years.
He was a delightful person, but I only saw him that one time, although he did make several trips back to visit my mother and the family when he came to see my grandparents.
At the time I met him I was not interested in genealogy, but for the past 40 years I have been doing family research and has published one book on my Lee line of the family. For many years now I have been doing my mother's line. I have a copy of Uncle Hines' death certificate that found him buried at Knupple Cem. I am so glad that you posted this and am wondering if you might possibly have a connection to him since you did his posting. It would be great to find out more about him. On one of his visits to Frankin Co., MS he brought an adopted daughter, but I do not know her name for certain, for I had left home at that time. Three younger siblings think her name was Laura and she would have been born about1945. Would be great to make contact with her.
Thanks again for your posting. If you like to respond, please do so at bglee@windstream.net.

Thanks,

Billy G. Lee

In reguards to your SAC for Sarah Whitmire...It does not give me the option of correcting the spouse. Maybe the contributor of Erma's memorial could make the correction.
