|Bio and Links|
I consider my "roots" from East Tennessee and Bell County, KY. Many of my direct line moved to Monroe, MI as early as 1923 and that is where our line also starts to include the State of Michigan. I've done as much as possible here on Findagrave to preserve our families past, that they will be remembered. Miller/Cox/Brogan/Parks. |
I started in the 90s to visit with those in our line and to gather as many of our old family photos and stories as possible ; before those who can share them with us were gone. There is nothing quite like a photo, story or memory to bring a person to life.
In many cases I don't have any photos of an individual. If you do, PLEASE post them in their memorials! If you have obituaries, biographical sketches or first hand accounts, I would love to add them.
It makes me a little sad to realize that most of my immediate line will have little ties with the areas of my childhood of TN and Monroe, MI, but those ties are preserved here.
My interests with Findagrave have expanded far beyond my family. I love most that it is free for all to share and that it helps to keep the memory of those gone before alive:
Someone once posted a grave memorial here that led me to my Great-Aunts resting place... I hope my work here will do the same for someone else.
THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN
Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried
For those 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 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 that 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.

It was my honor. This was my first time taking pictures of head stones for other people. The experience was humbling and therapeutic.
