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.

Iʻm gonna head over there to get this for you, but wanted to let you know that I photographed all the graves at R. W. Meyer Cemetery in Kalae, Molokaʻi and have added pages and the photographs... you might want to check it out... if any of them are your family let me know and I will transfer them to you...

Will you please consider transferring management of Dorothy Louise Frasier Odom's grave to me; Find A Grave Memorial# 9978907? I am her youngest daughter, and would appreciate this very much!

A little confusion perhaps? I posted Manase on the Hoʻolehua Cemetery page but I see you have him listed at another cemetery... if these are the same cemeteries with 2 different names you might want to contact Find A Grave and have them merged... but I did add the photo for him on the other page... also adding some Joao family members and see that is a name you are searching for so will transfer to you...
|Lynda Puakea||RE: Makakau ʻOhana|
Just transferred Manase to you, unfortunately I did not see Bessie... Samuel & Agnes were posted by mslomilomi... hopefully she will transfer to you. I will keep my eyes open for other Makakau graves... probably not going back to Molokaʻi any time soon... went to view some wahi pana... my husband is singing Molokaʻi Nui A Hina in a concert and we wanted to see the places the mele talks about... lovely trip...
E malama pono...
|Lynda Puakea||Makakau ʻOhana|
Aloha e Leilani,
Sorry I was unable to find the Charles Makekau you were looking for, but, I did find Samuel (1856-1942) & Agnes N Makekau at Puukamaliʻi Cemetery in Honolulu last week, and also found Manase Kaleikau Makekau and posted a page with a photo for him at Hoʻolehua Cemetery, Molokaʻi. If he is your ʻohana I would be happy to transfer him to you... let me know...

Leilani, Aloha to you, thanks for adding the photo to the memorial I created. No, I am not related, back in 2013 while in Hawaii on family reunions I swung by King Street and photographed one half of the cemetery as volunteer work and came back to LA and added what I photographed that was not up currently on this site. I received a request from Chelsea to transfer memorial to her, she is person who had the dupe memorial. She has deleted her's and is now asking transfer, I am going to transfer to her, she states she is 3x GG of Jane. Best regards and thanks again, Jerry
|Jerry Hughes & Roger Young||Jane S. Brown|
Leilani, hello, I respectfully ask if you could add the photo of Jane Steele Swinton Brown to my memorial # 114290024, I entered mine in June of 2013 and the photo you have of Jane is added to one entered after mine, it would be most appreciated. I have asked the owner of the dupe to delete theirs, entered in Oct, it is memorial # 118254668. Thanks kindly for your consideration. Best regards, Jerry Hughes
