Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a wife, mother, and grandmother.

My passions in life are my family, genealogy,
gardening,and writing.

I started climbing my family tree when I was twelve, and haven't stopped yet!

Many of my ancestors came to America for religious reasons. I have traced them through
just about every war that America has taken part in.

"Turning Hearts" comes from the last verse in The Old Testament, Malachi 4: 6.


It is a second death after you are forgotten.
How many generations does it take, even in a close knit family, for the fabric to unravel....?
Albert Lewis, Jewish Rabbi

"The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and deeds left undone." Harriet Beecher Stowe

"And death hath come upon our fathers; nevertheless we know then, for a Book of Remembrance we have written among us, according to the pattern of God." Moses 6: 45-46

"It isn't the date on either end that counts
But how they used their dash
For that dash between the dates
Represent the time they spent alive on earth.
And now only those who loved them know
What that little line is worth."
William Elliot Dudley

Those we love, don't go away
They walk beside us every day
Unseen, unheard, but always near
--Still loved, still missed and
Very dear.

Cancer is so limited..
It cannot cripple Love
It cannot shatter Hope
It cannot corrode Faith
It cannot destroy Peace
It cannot kill Friendship
It cannot suppress Memories
It cannot silence Courage
It cannot invade the Soul
It cannot steal Eternal Life
It cannot conquer the Spirit
Cancer is so limited!

Transition by William Cullen Bryant

So live that when that summons
comes to join
The innumerable caravan which moves
To that mysterious realm where each
shall take
His chamber in the silent halls of death,
Thou go not like the quarry slave
at night,
Scourged to his dungeon, but, sustained
and soothed
By an unfaltering trust, approach
thy grave
Like one who wraps the draperies of
his couch
About him and lies down to pleasant

I can't just make up graves. If you know the locations n and dates of birth & death I can connect them. Otherwise quit sending me corrections that don't have any data. I am not going to go looking for the memorials.

RE: Arleen A Lawhorn-Ray
The marker said Thomas R Lawhorn since this was the same grave that Arleen is in I figured his name was Thomas Ray they are in the same grave.
My sister and I both go by our second names.
I can ask them again but since Arleen is there I believe that this is Ray. Is there anyway you can check on his name. I will ask again in the office but this is what they gave me. Let me know.

Samuel John's grave at West Laurel Hill Cemetery
Buried next to Sam is his wife, Cathelia B. John (Aug. 9, 1915-Jan. 22, 2006). If her name means anything to you, I took a photo of her grave and I will upload it to her Find A Grave Memorial upon your photo request.

Thanks for sharing your photo. Of course I'm assuming the little rider is a girl.
