it brings its changes,
Fresh with every year,
But their memory will be cherished
In the hearts that hold them dear."

Your Tombstone Stands Among the Rest
Neglected and Alone
The Name and Date Have Worn Off
The Weathered Marble Stone
It Reaches Out to All Who Care.

It is Now to 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 Hearts Contract And Beat
a Pulse Entirely Not Our Own.

Dear Ancestor, The Place You Filled
Some Hundred Years Ago
Spreads Out Among the Ones You Left
Who Would Have Loved You So.

I Wonder How you Lived and Loved
I Wonder If You Knew
That Someday I would Find This Place
And Come to Visit You.

Henly Cemetery
I took pictures of the Caddells in Henley Cemetery for you. (I see they are now sideways, I'll go in and edit them...) But I noticed you said you visited with Lauren McCarty. He would be my acestry line. Just wondered if he had any stories about the McCartys, Reeds or McKennas?

RE: Earl Fayne Hooks
Hi! I saw and Earl's memorial that you, as Pearly Gates, had said that you had visited your Uncle Earl many times with your mother. Do you mind if I ask who your mother was? Earl is my great grandfather through his son, TA Hooks, Sr. I would love to chat with you sometime about him, if you are willing. My name is Kelly and you can contact me through my email at

RE: Clifton Walter Young
Thank you so much! It would be wonderful to see the picture you have of him. He died before I was born and I have seen only one other picture of him. Please feel free to contact me at the e-mail address on my contributor page.

Sarah Caddell
I have added some pictures of Sarah Caddell's stone. It is in very poor condition, but you can imagine it says "Sarah" and "Caddell".
