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 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.

Thanks again for Marvetta's obit. I ended up finding Thomas's kids after all. I must have had a typo when searching the first time.
I do think something is funny, and I winder if you find this if you have relatives in in the Kenon or Boone Counties, area.
I am related to Thomas Bernard McGough by marriage and and I am also related to his brother Carl Clayton McGough by marriage. Their spouses, who I am related to by blood, both descend from my McArthur family.
I am also related to Harry Hischemiller by marriage and his sister Helen (Hischemiiler) Turner by marriage. Their spouses both descend from (Mary) Jane (McCormick) McArthur-Wilson by her second marriage to Charles Alexander Wilson.
I think it's a conspiracy decades in the making to make my head spin haha ;)
Thanks again for all you do.

Thanks again for all your help and work.
I'm trying to sort out Thomas's children and exactly who their mother is/was, and I found a Marvetta McGough living at the same address as Thomas. She died December 17, 2006. I'm wondering if there may be an obituary. I couldn't find one online. I just noticed Thomas "Lenny" McGough so I will try to explore the woman listed as his mother. Thanks again.

They were most likely moved from Craig Street Burial Ground. In 1872 the Covington City Council paid the Highland Cemetery Company its outstanding bill of $397 due for the removal of bodies from the Craig Street Burial Ground.
