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 heartbreaks 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.

My husbands grandmother, sister and mother, saved obituaries all their lives, pasted them in old sears books, they were saved from being tossed out and given to me. I paid my son 1 penny to paste them onto index cards. There are no newspaper names or dates. I've been sending them as I find that persons burial place. History saved for all, thanks to Rosella, Glover Criss Mildred Criss and Wilma Criss Whittaker

Thanks for the obit. I added it to his memorial.
|Nora Hostutler||Allen Cemetery|
Thank-you so much for adding the info on the Jones Family in the Allen Cemetery. Your obits and death info is greatly appreciated. I have been trying to prove the burial locations for Wm and Anna Jones, do you have anything on them??
Thanks again for all your work.

Your poem is right on, thank you for sharing it.
|Susan Knisley||Blacksville Cemetery - Ivan M Cumberledge|
This ties in with my previous message. My great-uncle, Ivan McKinley Cumberledge, is a brother to Frederick Ray Cumberledge, who is also buried in Blacksville Cemetery. They are both the sons of Martin Willie Cumberledge and Suffa Mae Gump Cumberledge (who are both buried in Bethel Church Cemetery in Greene County, PA).
|Susan Knisley||Blacksville Cemetery - Frederick R Cumberledge|
I see you did the entry for my great-uncle, Fred Cumberledge. Not sure if you can link family members who are buried in different cemeteries, but I wanted to let you know that he is the son of Martin Willie Cumberledge and Suffa Mae Gump Cumberledge, both of whom are buried at the Bethel Church Cemetery. Thanks, Susan

Hello, I noticed that you have a couple of memorials in the Murray cemetery in WV. Alfred Floyd & Sarah Jane Anderson. I just recently started looking into my genealogy & have discovered that I am distantly related on the Fetty side. Are you related to them? I was just up at the Murray cemetery yesterday and because it is such a remote area (only accessible by atv or walking) I took pictures of every memorial they had. If you would like to do a photo request for Alfred and Sarah Jane, I would be happy to share them with you.
Thanks for your time,
