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 hallowed 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.

Wasn't George the brother of Nawai not the son?

Hi Leilani, I got your edit submission to change her middle name to Oku and last name to Manini. Uncle Jacob was my partner's Great Aunt's husband, Uncle Jacob is related by marriage to Aunty Siliua Anae. I have an obit for him that named his other spouse, Anna as Oku and step children of Uncle Jacob's that was Mary's children, they had last name Oku, there was a Richard and Rita Oku. Thank you for the last name Manini, till now I was not aware of this maiden name. Are you related as well? Mahalo, J&R
You're welcome. Happy New Year!
|Randall M||RE: Mahalo|
You are very welcome. I am glad to help with your photo request.
|David Blewster Knight||RE: Irma Ruth Silva Agard - Oahu Cemetery|
You are welcome. I'll check from time-to-time to see if the marker gets engraved. There is a very nice Silva stone on the back side of the plot; three of the four sides don't have any inscriptions. I feel certain that Irma's name will appear there sometime in the future. Take care. David.
|CG||Reposting photo request|
Hi. You might want to repost your photo request for Eloise Kepaa. Sorry, I accidently posted a hint there about the wrong person, so it now looks very "probematic" when in actuality is isn't. (Plus, the grave site location has been updated since the first comment was made about not being able to locate it, so it might be easier to find now.)

|CG||Charles Lindsey [Lindsey Family Cemetery]..more|
Hi. I was able to reach Anna Ranch. I was told that the Lindsey family takes care of the adjoining cemetery, and the ranch office will search for a contact for me if available. She said that not too long ago (more recently than 2004) the ranch was contacted regarding having a burial at the cemetery for Charles, but since the cemetery is not taken care of by them, the person was referred to the Lindsey family.
I also checked with the Annunciation Catholic Church (from the obit info), and their records indicate burial at "Lindsey Cemetery".
If I hear anything more, I'll let you know.

|CG||Charles Lindsey [Lindsey Family Cemetery]|
Hi, today I searched the Lindsey Family Cemetery in Kamuela. I posted this on the photo request link,"Someone previously searched the cemetery 4 years ago and they could not locate a marked grave for Charles Lindsey. I checked in Aug 2016, and there still is no marked grave for Charles in this very small cemetery." I did not close the photo request, I'll leave it up to you to decide if you want to do so.
