Bio Photo 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.

RE: Thank you
Hey Leilani! You are more than welcome! I am glad that I have been able to locate and fulfill some requests. To be able to assist in the search for ancestors or the honoring of people who have passed on is a blessing. Its a big cemetery and I am still working my way through each section but hopefully will be able to locate if not all, then the majority of the requests that have been made. Thanks!!

RE: Overholt Cemetery
Your are more than welcome for the tombstone photo. I didn't directly seek out this tombstone to photograph for you. I spent several hours at Overholt Cemetery taking as many photos as I could. I have about 350 of them that I am in the process of posting.I haven't looked, but if you have more requests for photos from Overholt, I may have already taken them and will be posting them shortly.

I am also far from my own family and that is why I think this is such an important project. I am just glad I can help.
