Words are things; and a small drop of ink
Falling like dew upon a thought, produces
That which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think.

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.

WILL AND TESTAMENT

WHEN I DIE I WILL NOT END
THO MY BODY TURNS TO DUST.
I'LL TRAVEL WIDELY THROUGH THE STARS
WITH FEWER CARES, I TRUST.
SO FIND A PLACE TO LAY MY BONES
MY MUSCLE, HAIR, AND SKIN.
THEN PLANT A TREE ATOP MY CHEST
FOR LIFE TO START AGAIN.
LET HER ROOTS ENTWINE MY RIBS
AND TEAR APART MY COFFIN.
IT MATTERS NOT THE LEAST TO ME,
I'LL BE IN HER BRANCHES, LAUGHIN'.
WHEN I'VE PUNCHED MY TIME ON EARTH,
WITH NO MORE NEED OF CLOCKS,
I'LL GO TO FIND THE NEXT NEW ME.
PLANT THIS LAST ME IN A BOX.

Hello! I am about to fulfill your photo request but unfortunately, it is a photo of the area, only. I don't think there is a headstone, but when I poked around with my trowel, I thought I could feel something but it was about 6 inches under the surface. The office was already closed so I could not call to confirm. I know I was in the right place because there are number plugs in the ground. I suggest you call them during the week and ask if there is supposed to be a headstone. If they say yes, tell them what happened and ask if they can uncover it. Then, let me know and I will go back and get another photo.

I am sorry this was not a more positive outcome. Hopefully they will tell you there is actually a headstone there.

Best regards,

B.J.

Helen Palmer
Hello sir! Hope you had a great Christmas.
I removed the photo of Nellie Palmer's stone from Helen Palmer's memorial...Photo has been reposted to Nellie's memorial. FYI...the Helen Palmer stone photo I took is of an infant daughter. This doesn't match the birth/death dates on her memorial page. Mistake maybe? Let me know if I can be of further help.

RE: Welland Kafton
I don't know about you but for me I would have to have my curiosity to why person is said to be buried in 2 different locations resolved. I have additionally confirmed through Marian that Welland is not buried there in Corinne Cemetery. Utah Archives does put him at that cemetery though or suggests he is at that cemetery. Let me give you link. https://utahdcc.secure.force.com/burials/searchburials?CemeteryName=&DeathDateFrom=&DeathDateTo=&FirstName=Welland&LastName=Kafton This site I think is were confusion may have started. Best I could do in finding source or problem.

RE: Welland Kafton
Yes you are welcome. Just to make sure this is same person. His parents are Alaxander R. and Laura L. . 1940 census living in Malad Election Precinct, Corinne City Utah. If it interest you at all Corinne is really set up as 2 towns. I did find a receipt for the headstone that also confirms your findings. I will call historian tomorrow to additionally confirm for you. So his name can be removed by Find A Grave administrators. If I can do anything else let me know.
