"Your tombstone stands among the rest;|
neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
on polished, marbled stone
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn
You did not know that I'd exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
in flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
one hundred years ago
spreads out among the ones you left
who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
and come to visit you."

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.

|Mona McLaughlin Mosure ||RE: Nancy Weaver Nuckolls|
Thanks- Glad to be of service. Are you interested in the other family names that are in the section?
|james rowe||RE: Cornelia Weaver Jordan|
You are very welcome.............
|Jacque Gray||RE: William Troboy|
Sounds like you have a real challenge on your hands with so many variations of the spellings of your family names! Makes me appreciate how little mine have changed through the years. Jacque G.
|Jacque Gray||RE: William Troboy|
You're welcome. I also found that his wife, Pauline Self Troboy was not entered in Find a Grave so I loaded a picture in for her too, if you're interested in her info. Jacque Gray
|Mona McLaughlin Mosure ||Nuckolls/ Weaver|
Added the images that you requested- I do have all the other names in that plot as well as one other that has a Nuckolls Weaver- so maybe brother & sister married in to each family. Let me know if you would want those pics/names etc.
|Phillip Plotz, M.D.||Christopher Weaver at Westview Cemetery in Atlanta|
I would like to try to find your request. If you will call the office and get the section and lot numbers, it will help me to narrow the search. The cemetery is huge and the office wants to charge me for that information. Thanks so much.
Can you verify with them that there is a marker too?
Their number is 404-755-6611
|Jacque Gray||RE: Garland Welcome Troboy|
Glad to be of help. Jacque G.
