Bio Photo I am secretary of the Little Cedar Cemetery in Adams, Minnesota. Please contact me with any questions you may have about the cemetery. I am also an avid genealogist with interest in the history of the families in Adams.

I welcome any and all additional information and corrections that you might have. I will also gladly transfer any pages that I have created that are your family members. Feel free to use any pictures I add to pages.

If I submit additions to pages that you manage and you are no longer interested in maintaining those pages, I will gladly accept any transfers.

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.

Hi Janet,

That's fine, I put through the edits. I have no problem accepting family bibles as sources either, I just like to know what the source is. Ancestry has a pretty good collection of databases to search on, but obviously there are local records collections that they don't have access to.

Hi Janet,

If you don't mind my asking, what is your source for her exact dates you provided? I've been checking on Ancestry and I can't find a listing for her in any of the death indexes I have access to.

Good question. I don't even remember creating that memorial. But then, at my age, I don't remember a lot of things. As a general rule I don't use that method of adding memorials. Generally, I have to have a cemetery to put them in. It very well may be the same person. I will delete mine and see if I can do some editing on the one created by another contributor. Thanks for calling my attention to this matter.

Hello, I really cannot tell you if his middle name was Jacob. If you should find more evidence, then let me know and I will gladly add that. Thanks

I have been making all the additions that you sent me. You will have to send this request on Rebecca Chambers because it seems I did not add her as a spouse.
Thank you for all your work on this website. I hope you enjoy the week.
