Bio Photo THE 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.

Thank you for trying to find her headstone for me. Strange she doesn't have one and the rest of her family does.

Scouten Family
Melissa,

I'm researching the Scouten Family. I've come across your name several times on findagrave.com where you took a lot of the headstone pictures for this family and even added memorials. Would you mind contacting me at sandra.lynn.rodriguez@gmail.com as I would love to get more information on this line.

Thank You,
Sandra

RE: Thank you!
It's awesome that you're so dedicated to the research and helping other "geneaphiles" with theirs! It is definitely time-consuming but so worth it when you come across a surprising hidden nugget about an an ancestor! It always makes me excited.

Thanks for the info about the upcoming Stickles reunion, I'll try to make it and pass on the word to my family.
