Bio and Links
Bio Photo The living come with grassy tread
To read the gravestones on the hill;
The graveyard draws the living still,
But never anymore the dead.
The verses in it say and say:
"The ones who living come today
To read the stones and go away
Tomorrow dead will come to stay."
So sure of death the marbles rhyme,
Yet can't help marking all the time
How no one dead will seem to come.
What is it men are shrinking from?
It would be easy to be clever
And tell the stones: Men hate to die
And have stopped dying now forever.
I think they would believe the lie.

This is a Native American Burial Ground :-)
I had to smile when I saw your narrative and description. Yes, they were all shades and colors
per appearance. I'm going to add a few of my ancestors that I know are buried there. If I had the health and still knew people in
the area, I would be willing to pay to have the grounds restored as much as possible. But everyone I ever knew in Hertford County are long gone.
Thank you so much for all of your effort to photograph the remaining headstones.
Blessings, Sandi :-)

Thank you for the poem you quoted in your bio. It fits with what we do. I have always liked Frost.

Janice Faye Flythe Kirkpatrick
I have formally requested a photo of the headstone for Janice on the findagrave website. The cemetery is the Bridgers-Flythe cemetery located at Lassiters cross roads. Did you take the picture of the house? Perhaps the headstone was not there at the time you took your picture?

I think you are located in the area. Is it possible to stop by and take a picture of the headstone? Perhaps it hasbeen installed by now?


Thanks Gerry

Morris-Vick Cementary
Thanks for all you have done in helping me to locate family. Although I see several of the family names buried here I do not see the names of other Vick family members. Exum Vick and Roberta Parker Vick are buried here with stones but they are not listed. Also, I have a question concerning the name (Morris-Vick), the cementary is located on the Vick family farm and has always been referred to as the "Vick Family Cementary".
I would like to get other family members who are buried here added and ask if there are more pictures of the cementary. Exum and Roberta Vick are my husband's grandparents.
