Finding the graves of ancestors can be an overwhelming challenge. What started out years ago as an innocent quest to find the graves of my grandparents has become my passion. Vacations often end up with side trips to libraries or cemeteries, camera in hand, documenting the final resting place of my ancestors and special people. It is my contribution to others who share the special connection to those who are gone, but not forgotten. |

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.

Please add my gg-grandfather William Mathis Mills as a son to Naaman Mills. He and his brother Brittan Mills are buried in the Needs Creek Cemetery, in Faulkner County, AR. "Father" Mills founded the church there, thus the cemetery.

Noticed a "head shot" photo of Joseph H.(Harman)Hutto that you added to a listing by Mr Cotton. I lost a copy of this family group photo in Dale county several years ago while searching for family information. Had given up hope of finding another. Could I possibly copy yours? Have some other photos of this family if you're interested.
|Barbara Wilson Krause||Jean McRitchie Young and Abram H. Young|
I know now for a fact after talking to the Oak Hill Cemetery this morning, 18 March 2013 that Jean McRitchie Young and her husband are not buried in Oak Hill Cemetery.
If I had your email address I can send their tombstone picture showing they are buried in the Young plot in the White Oak Associate Reformed Presbyterian Cemetery, Newnan, Coweta, Georgia.
Please remove your memorials, it is most confusing.
Please let me know when this has been done.
Thanks for taking care of this problem promptly.
|Barbara Wilson Krause||Jean McRitchie Young and her husband Abram H. Young|
It appears we have a problem on both Jean McRitchie Young #32562963 and her husband Abram H. Young #32562836 memorials, you are showing they are buried in the Oak Hill Cemetery, Newnan, Coweta, GA.
However, a transcription states they are buried in the White Oak Associate Reformed Presbyterian Cemetery, Newnan Coweta, GA. The memorial # for Jean McRichie Young at that cemetery is #64068107 and Jean's husband Abram H. Young #64068096.
What cemetery are they buried? I will so look forward to hearing from you. Please write me at Barbjk7@aol.com
My research is at a hold until I hear what will be done about this. Thanks so much for your most kind help.

I got your note about the duplicate. It has been corrected. I submitted most of the memorials at Evergreen i created on a spreadsheet to Find a Grave and their system scans for duplicates. The way I had submitted had the name slightly different and the system didn't pick it up as a duplicate. I had photographed the entire Section W-3 where Mr. Allen's grave is located. I added the photos to the memorial you created. Sorry about the dup. Have a great day.

|Christopher Linton||Laura Jepsen Gravesite Information|
I am a caretaker of the property called Lichgate on High Road where Laura Jepsen's ashes are scattered. I am working on gathering the history of the place, letters, photos etc. so everything can be safely archived for future generations. Your Find-a-Grave page about her contains 2 photos that I do not have copies of nor do I know where they came from. I would love to know the source(s) you used so I can include them in my work at her cottage. I don't know where you reside but if you are ever in Tallahassee, please email me and I will open up her home so you can visit. Thanks for you help,
|John Glassford||RE: Merrill updates in Sawyer Hill|
