When I was a kid, my grandparents would take me with them to visit the cemeteries where relatives were buried. They would stand by a stone and talk about the person buried there. I wish I could remember those stories. This is a way to record stories I am now told. There is a story under every stone and cemeteries full of untold stories. I hope this will give people a chance to record a memory before it is forgotten, then lost. |
Recently, my husband got a Harley and we have combined our two interests. We ride the bike to various cemeteries that folks request photos from and have fun reading the old names and hunting for the requested gravesite. Sometimes just finding the cemetary is quite the challenge!
I do research on the following family lines: Lillpop, Askren, Green, Bell in Indiana. In Mississippi I follow the lines of Taylor, Ferguson, Scott and Holden.
"Do not, my Brothers and Sisters, think of the cemetery with tears, nor meditate upon the coffin and the shroud with gloomy thoughts. You only sojourn there for a little season, and to you it will not appear a moment; your body will sleep, and if men sleep all through a long night it only seems an hour to them, a very short moment. The sleeping time is forgotten, and to your sleeping body it will seem no time at all—while to your glorified soul it will not seem long because you will be so full of joy that a whole eternity of that joy would not be too long!"

I actually have a copy of his discharge which was 6/29/52. That is how my search began. Thank for your the information you found! I still would like to see a picture of him! I don't even know what he looked like!

Thank you for the many photos of relatives buried at Mt. Zion Cemetery, Lafayette Co,, Mississippi.
I appreciate all the work you do in photographing tombstones for those of us who live far away and who probably will never be able to visit their gravesite of our ancestors.

I believe this is my biologic father's grave. My mother never told me about him and I was disappointed when my search for him ended at a grave but thankful at the same time for some type of information.. So I guess I just wanted to say thank you!

Thank you for your photos! I was beginning to think no one cares down there. You have proven that someone does care! Thanks for all that you do on here.
