Bio and Links
Bio Photo My families are Chambers, Birdyshaw, Estes, Williams, Cole, Jester, Seymore, Bonds. My husbands family Carpenter and Keller.
Some people have a problem with their pictures being used by others; I don't. If you want to use any pictures I have posted, feel free. If I have created a memorial for your family member and you need me to transfer it to you, I have no problem with that. Just let me know.
I don't do memorials for the numbers; I try to link family members for other generations and wish that all contributors would do the same.

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.

RE: Bartilee Whitman
You are certainly welcome. My husband's mother was a Whitman and we are researching this family, especially in Alabama. Are you related? You may contact me directly at edithcb@charter.net.

Jones/Carroll
I have been researching my family history and have had some success. I was trying to locate the grave of my Grandmother Mary Josephine (Carroll) Jones and Delano Jones. From what I was told by family memebers Mary was buried in Galilee Missionary Baptist Church Cemetery. She was born in 1936 and died at age 26. My Grandfather Delano Jones was born 11/18/1933 and died 12/03/1989. He was living in (Escambia County) Atmore AL and I don't know if he was buried in Atmore or in (Lauderdale County) Florence AL. Any help you can provide finding there grave would be greatly appreciated.
