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.

Lani Melenbacker Turner
Collins, Reinhardt Families
Hello Leilani,
I see that you have entered or maintain many of my relatives records in Find A Grave. Are we related?
Julius & Tamar Gandall Reinhardt-My Great Great Grandparents
John & Harriet Reinhardt Collins-My Great Grandparents
William & Rebecca (Ruth) Collins Holt- My Grandparents
Robert & Kathleen Holt Melenbacker-My Parents.

I have an Ancestry family tree and I have been unable to find information about Tamar Gandall Reinhardts parents.

I hope to hear from you.

Take care,
Lani Melenbacker Turner

Leilani:

Since the birth year (1850) change you are recommending for the subject is different from the year (1852) that appears on the tombstone, I believe it would be more appropriate to add your info to his bio. If you agree, please give me a source and I'll put the info in his bio. The other changes you recommended are fine. Thanks. David.

RE: You're awesome!
Glad to help, although I know the last few you have been looking for have not revealed any new information as they were unmarked.

Are you related to all the Graybiels in Morgan's Point Cemetery? If so, I will gladly transfer any that I have created over to you.

Napae m Swinton
Thank you

For years I have known of the Hawaiian connection, but it was so blurry. Since I am an only child, age 67 obviously there is no one left to ask. All that has been known is that we get moles/freckles and all seem to die of strokes.

But now, thanks to you: I have the beginning. The gravestone of Napae Swinton is beautiful and does certainly indicate she was revered. She was our start.

Now, just to find out more!


Thank you so very much for your generous gift. Without it my children, grandchildren and those yet to be born would be left without an important part of their heritage.

Hi Leilani,

Just posted pages for 4 more of your ʻohana and transferred to you... no marker on Janeʻs grave but you can see by the ground that it is definitely a grave site. And the flower looks very deliberately placed. I donʻt have the exact plot location for Charles P Jr, Elsie Leilani, Harvey or Eunice... the cemetery # is 808-233-4400 if you want to get the specifics.

Hope you are having a good summer... it has been hot & humid here... more like September or October! E malama pono...
