|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.

Her grave remains unmarked. I posted a photo of her grave with white flowers on it showing the area. James

I have created memorials for the four Sotelo "family" members I located at All Soul's since there were none on Find A Grave. They rest next to each other. If they are your family, I would happily transfer management to you for them. I only created them because I stumbled upon them and they did not already have memorials.
The names and memorial numbers are as follows:
Daniel Sotelo (1920-1987) #157765096
Maria Sotelo (1923-2009) #157765128
George Sotelo (1960-1985) #157764976
Michael Sotelo (1958-2008)#157765055

Finally! Took me two more trips to All Soul's but did locate the Sotelos there. I will send more details later, but they are Daniel and Maria and what I believe to be two sons named George and Michael.

You are most welcome. Do not know if you have Sotelo family buried at All Soul's, but as I was photographing another request yesterday, I noticed several Sotelo's buried nearby. Did not photograph but may look for them again one next visit. There are no memorials for them on Find A Grave.

She is buried with her first husband / Jack Davis. Photographed their grave today and will post shortly.

I have claimed your request for Nellie and All Soul's Cemetery but they are unable to locate her in their records. Was she buried under her maiden name - Sotelo - or with her first husband, Jack Davis? This might help me in locating her.
