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.
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.
"Call not back the dear departed
anchored safe where storms are o'er
on the border land we left them
soon to meet and part no more."
Inscription on a gravestone
"Show me the manner in which a nation cares for its dead, and I will measure with mathematical exactness the tender mercies of its people, their respect for the laws of the land and their loyalty to high ideals."

I do have some other info on William Sefton. He arrived in Philadelphia, PA. on June 19,1818 from Belfast Ireland on the ship Thomas Gilstan. I do also have some census info. I would be happy to print up what I have and mail it to you. This would be the easiest for me since I am kind of computer ignorant. Hate to admit that but it is oh so true!

I believe you meant to put this record in Laurel Hill Cemetery in Erie PA. I don't think Mr Merchant was buried in Philadelphia.

Transfered the little on over. I am thinking it is unmarked and Edna is actually buried with the baby.
I will try after the holidays and double check that at the library!

Thanks for your assistance . Nancy May not be in this cemetery. The York county cemeteries book has Nancy in a small, family cemetery in South Sanford. On Jagger Mill Rd as I recall. I wondered if the grave/stone had been relocated.
So...I'd appreciate updates on what you find. Thanks again for tracking this down for me.
