I Started researching my family tree on Ancestry.com and this is where I beacame familiar with "Find A Grave". |
The poem below, pretty much sums it up.
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.
If I've created a memorial of someone in your family and you would like that memorial tranferred over to you, just ask.
If I don't show any detailed information for locating graves, such as cemetery section and plot designators, that information isn't available to me or doesn't exist.
If you have a question about a particular
memorial, please identify your question with the Find-A-Grave memorial number. Thanks
