Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm not a memorial collector and am more than happy to transfer ownership of any memorials that are your family. If there are any changes or corrections you'd like to make to any of these memorials or if you'd like a transfer, please use the edit tab.

Some of the Winnebago County memorials were created using indices compiled by the Winnebagoland Genealogical Society and Janet Eiler.

Some of the early Riverside memorials were created with the help of Ginny Cross's "Riverside Cemetery Burials 1841-1908-an incomplete list."

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.
