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 hallowed 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.

|Donald Nettles||RE: L B Nettles|
Thank you for making the edits. This child was my grandfather's brother. There is no need to transfer management unless you prefer, in which case I will gladly accept. Again, thank you.

I just sent an edit request for L B Nettles, Find A Grave memorial # 97091430. He was my grandfather's brother and the name "Nettles" was misspelled "Nettler" on his headstone. Thank you for looking at this.

Thank you for the transfer. It means a lot to me!

Hi Candy ~
I am a volunteer with 'The Journey Through Hallowed Ground', researching Civil War Soldier records. I'm contacting you to ask permission to post a copy of your photo of the grave of Pvt William L G Manuel (Beaufort Nat'l Cem) to his Fold3.com memorial page. Thank you, Karen

I am writing a two-volume book on the 8th Indiana. I would like to include photos of the soldiers and their headstones with their biographies. I would like to use some of your photos in the book and will give you credit in the caption for each photo. If you are interested, I can let you know when the book is published.
