Death comes once, but a cemetery is forever
Phillip M. O'Shea

The quality, not the longevity, of one's life is what is important. --Dr. Martin Luther King Jr

Please feel free to contact me about any graves I have listed. If I have listed someone that you are related to and I am not and you would like them transferred to you, please just let me know. If we are both related then I will have to think about it. Please feel free to use any of my photo's anywhere you want.

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
(rev 21:4)

"Dear Ancestor
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and the date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who cares
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you."

A limb has fallen from the family tree.
I keep hearing a voice that says, "Grieve not for me.
Remember the best times, the laughter, the song.
The good life I lived while I was strong.
Continue my heritage, I'm counting on you.
Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through.
My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest.
Remembering all, how I truly was blessed.
Continue traditions, no matter how small.
Go on with your life, don't worry about falls
I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin.
Until the day comes we're together again.

RE: Urbana Cemetery
Urbana is not real close to my place. I get there every so often and am aware of the list - I'll work it when I can if someone doesn't get there first. G

The photo request was sometime ago, I believe. I have since been to the grave site and found a stone.

RE: Cemetery Number PO014
Sorry, Barbara ... I do not. I don't photograph any of the Portsmouth cemeteries so I've never had the occasion to look for that one.

RE: Cemetery Number PO014
Photos of the only five identifiable gravestones are available at:

PO014 ALMY-REYNOLDS LOT This cemetery is located 135 feet west of Roger Williams Court and southwest of #40 Roger Williams Court. It is 180 feet east of Mary Lane. Worn slate stones, many sunk too far in the earth to be read. Presently in back yard of house surrounded by very low stone wall.

RE: Urbana Cemetery
Barbara I would be glad to look for the graves. I will not be up there till end of June so maybe someone will find them before me. I wish I had seen Silas Shanks 'cause I have him in my ancestry tree. I probably walked right by him when I was photographing family names like Matthews, Campbell, Brabson, Barkley, Nelson and others.

I really need to go back there ; a great historical area for all my families.
