I have been into genealogy since 2000 and get a lot of my information from the internet. With that in mind, I thought it would be helpful to others if I would load the memorials and photos of the loved ones of other genealogists. |
CHANGES & CORRECTIONS & REQUEST FOR TRANSFERS
If you want corrections made please use the edit tab. It mades it a lot easier to go to the site and make changes.
If the memorial number is not included in the correction request, there is no guarantee the changes will be made.
If you see some of your kin and would like to manage the memorial let me know and I'll be glad to release it to you.
I am not concerned about the number of memorials I manage.
I am very concerned about accuracy.
I don't know who wrote this poem but how true it is.
THE CEMETERY PHOTOGRAPHER
Wandering among the stones I see
The stones so weathered and worn
‘Tis difficult to find the date
On which the babe was born
I stare at the stone and am struck with awe
At the life that I knew was gone
This was someone's child, a babe so sweet
With loved ones to carry on
So I take a photo for all to see
For the family that remains
An everlasting memory of
A child of God's domain
I brush the weeds back from the stone
And say a silent prayer
For the babes that had no chance to live
And for mothers everywhere
The dove calls out it's mourning song
Among the stones so still
Echoes of the woes, through time
The choirs of despair
The stone will someday perish
The flowers will be gone
But a photo now remains of this
Their memory lives on!
And so my friend, don't hesitate
To film the weathered stone
Those who live within your hearts
Are never truly gone
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 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.

I don't know this child personally but the obit was taken from the Kokomo Tribune on Dec 31, 2012. I would image that there is no headstone in place yet. I have been in that cemetery and it is right next to the church. My Aunt is buried there. As soon as the weather breaks I will drive over and check it out. Isn't that far. What a sad thing to have to bury a child. I'll keep checking.

Would you please contact me with your personal email address. We may be related.
I am trying to find more information on Dora and WF Gamblin. WF was my grandfather and I remember WF & Dora coming to visit. I was 6 when he died. My Mom has died and I have not been able to find much documentation on WF or of his marriage to Dora. I have questions that maybe you could tell me if you are related.

No problem, glad I could help. Use it however you wish. I'd taken the photo back in 2006. I hadn't been on here in a couple years and was just browsing around, saw your request, knew I had the photo and a few keystrokes later, it was on its way.

|Mike Pippin||RE: Eudora Gamblin Murdock|
You're welcome and thanks for linking her to Gr-grandpa Robert Murdock.
Here's a couple more tidbits. In the 1920 Ark. census John & Dora have 3 daughters, Ruth, Ruby, and Julia. Also, could you update and add the marriage year of Eudora & Robert to 1913. This is to put her in the proper order as being Robert's 3rd wife (he had 5 altogether).
|Mike Pippin||RE: Eudora Gamblin Murdock|
1st husband was Sanders John Zimmerman, born abt. 1873 in Indiana. They married in Wayne Co., Mo. abt 1895 (she as Dora Gamblin), had a daughter named Ruth (1900 Arkansas census) and divorce about 1912. All this info is in Ancestry.com and Rootsweb.com
