THE LAST SOLDIER
When the last soldier passes on,
When armies are disbanded and militias discharged,
When weapons are abandoned and armor discarded,
Your mission will, at last, be over.
For you know the soldier's secret.
Yours was not a mission of war
Nor a mission of ruin.
Yours was not a mission of destruction
Nor a mission of death.
Your mission was safety, security, protection.
Your mission was honor, loyalty, service.
Your mission was to end violence, tyranny, despair.
When the last soldier passes on,
When the uniforms are retired and the final grave filled,
We will remember all who served and sacrificed for our nation.
Until then God of Old,
Watch over our soldiers and our veterans.
Renew their courage.
Rebuild their strength.
Heal their wounds.
Bind their hearts with Your steadfast love.
And give them peace.
DON'T CHA JUST LOVE GOING TO A PAGE FILLED WITH "CAN DO, CAN'T DO,WON'T DO, PLEASE DO, GUIDLINES?"
Not going to do it here-if I have someone you would like, unless its one of my relatives---ITS YOURS!
I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED WALKING OLD CEMETERIES AND READING STONES...TAKING PICS OF THEM, DREAMING OF WHAT IT WAS LIKE IN "THOSE" DAYS, WHAT THEY WORE, WHAT THEY DID.
There's so much more behind a headstone than just a name and a couple of dates.
WHEN I FIND OLD DOCUMENTS, ARTICLES, PICS, I WILL POST TO THE PERSON IF I CAN FIND THEIR MEMORIAL. I HOPE THEY WILL HELP YOU ADD A LITTLE PIECE TO THE PUZZLE OF LIFE OF THOSE GONE NOW.
LIFE IS A JOURNEY---ENJOY THE TRIP!
THANK A VETERAN FOR YOUR FREEDOM
The brave may not live forever, but the cautious do not live at all. Author unknown
VISIT A CEMETERY AND PAY RESPECT TO THOSE FALLEN
Without the brave efforts of all the soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines and their families, this nation, along with our allies around the world, would not stand so boldly, shine so brightly and live so freely. Lane Allen Evans

Yep.. you are correct. Just found Clayton's death certificate and confirmed what I had been told about Margaret Rushton. Some of the info I had. Charles was my grandfather. Margaret had a son David Clayton with Caleb Cannon. Charles, Macy and William were with George her second husband. You are welcome to view my family tree on ancestry. It's pretty complete. Thanks so much for your help. Keep in touch if you find anything else. I visited the cemetery last year. If you ever find anything on Roxanna Meredith let me know. it's a baby's site. George is buried alone with an infant. Apparently women were buried with their first husband in those days.( at least in my family on both sides)so that accounts for where Margaret is. Don't know the where abouts of his first wife Mary Bradley
Thank you very much for taking the photo :) and all your time and efforts, very much appreciated :)

Hi,gennie! Yes I am liking this web site and photo requests. I share your enthusiasm with how these people lived,what they wore,what they did for fun etc.
I find old cemeteries very interesting and sometimes you might find an interesting epitaph.
I'm glad the picture was to your liking because what I do when photographing a gravestone,I make sure it's as clear as it can be. What I do is check the photograph (nice to have digital) before leaving the cemetery. Sometimes it's quite weathered but that's beyong our control.
It's fun,informative, and not creepy as some might think. Death is part of life and I don't fear it....

Thank you so much for all the pictures you added yesterday. I'm very happy with them and glad you found the other graves for the Ward family. I would appreciate if you could add a photo for the father William Ward (Memorial# 7783665). I had a photo request for him but it was accidentally removed.
I don't know if the other sister Margaret (Ward) Stortz is buried at Lakeside. She lived at Rehoboth Beach and could be buried there with her husband William Stortz. I found an obituary for her but it doesn't mention any cemetery. I would assume if there was a burial at Lakeside she would probably be near the other family members. Unfortunately the person I spoke with on the phone at the cemetery could not confirm or deny her burial.
I also don't think you will find a husband for Georgia Hyatt at the cemetery. I learned her and former husband Charles Hyatt Jr. were divorced. He died in Florida May 9, 1978. If there was a burial for him it probably was elsewhere.

Hi.something happened on my computer and I lost the email you sent with the obit for Margaret Cannon. We had been to the cemetery and saw the grave site. I wasn't sure about the other markers on the site. Margaret Cannon was first married to Caleb. My great grandfather George Meredith ( also buried in Barrets)was her second husband. An old love letter from Clayton Cannon to my fathers sister helped tie a family story together. The mystery is now that I was told my fathers grandmother was a Margaret Rushton but your obit makes me think that might have been an error on someones part and that her maiden name was not Rushton but Grier (I think that's what you sent) Please resend the obit that you have on Margaret Cannon so that I can further research this. Thanks so much for your help. Of course there is a possibility that her mother could have had a first husband with the Rushton name. I have no doubt that the Margaret Cannon buried with Caleb is my great grandmother. the mystery is her maiden name. Lana Champion. email: email@example.com
