Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have always had an interest in cemeteries, old and new. From 2000 to 2013 I mapped and documented the oldest section of Solomons Cemetery in Forestville Va. It was exciting to find graves that previously could not be identified.
I also spent time finding my ancestors graves and making memorials for them. Some were covered with earth 2 inches deep! Learned that I had family that were civil war veterans as well.
Just became a resident of Savannah, Georgia and am excited to be so close to Bonaventure Cemetery. It is a mystical and spiritual place. I see something amazing every time I go there. There are many old cemeteries here in Savannah I cannot wait to explore.

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.

Please don't go if the weather doesn't permit. They aren't going anywhere.

Have you given up on the project for the winter? I can understand that. Hope all is well with you and yours. Jan

Thanks so much for the photo, however you put the pic of Arnold Floyd or Floyd Arnold on his son's page. It does get very confusing. Pic is great.
