Finding the graves of ancestors can be an overwhelming challenge. What started out years ago as an innocent quest to find the graves of my grandparents has become my passion. Vacations often end up with side trips to libraries or cemeteries, camera in hand, documenting the final resting place of my ancestors and special people. It is my contribution to others who share the special connection to those who are gone, but not forgotten. |

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.

|Steven Herndon||Hoyt Keith Dantzler|
I was wondering how do you know this person? I was Keith's best friend 1973 till I went into the army in 76 and shared a couple of apartments with him and his long time girlfriend Renea Lombard( I think I spelled that wrong) they were some good times, we bought and fixed many old cars and worked several job's together, nobody knows this guy?? how did you find out about him? I heard he was shot by some ex -inmate's he met in prison. they had planned to kill him once he arrived with about $4000.00 worth of cocaine from a drug buy, so I heard. I would like to know if they were ever caught? I never heard any thing, any info would be nice. Steven

I believe this is your 6th great grandmother's burial place. Have you found it?
|Chuck & Donna Dennis||Sarah Vincent Priest Godbertson|
Do you know the original source of the information you entered on her (e.g., marriages, arrival on the Anne in 1623)? Thanks.
|Sharon Wilhelm||Elizabeth Trull Pierce|
I am looking at your memorial of Elizabeth Trull Pierce. I am wondering if this is the Elizabeth Pierce that I am looking for. The dates seem to be good and she was the wife of John and his dates seem to be good, but I have a maiden name of Stoker. What additional information can you possible give me regarding the Pierce family. I am a direct decendant. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

|Neal Hutto||Family Photo|
Still trying to find the complete family photo that was the source of the individual photos of Joseph Harman Hutto and other members of his family. Managed to lose the one I had years ago and cannot seem to find another. Suggestions?
This is my Great Grandfather and his family.
Any help would be appreciated.
