Words are things; and a small drop of ink
Falling like dew upon a thought, produces
That which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think.
Lord Byron, (1788-1824)
Happiness keeps you Sweet...Trials keep you Strong...Sorrows keep you Human...Failures keep you Humble...Success keeps you Glowing...But Only Friends and Faith keep you Going.
"Words of Wisdom" sent to me by a Friend.
"Those who take no interest in the deeds of their ancestors are not likely to do anything worthy to be remembered by their descendants."
"The German is like a willow.
No matter which way you bend him,
he will always take root again."

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.

Thanks so much for taking the time to photograph this headstone.
|Greta Wahl-Diede||RE: Eureka City Cemetery|
Taking the photos is my pleasure! I'll be heading back to the Eureka cemeteries this fall, make sure you get your requests in LOL
Thank you for doing so much of the work to gather the names of the Herrs and Reiswigs and their crisscrossing in North Dakota. A shirttail relative of Clarence Reiswig, IH

After adding the photo, I noticed that the year of birth is different. But this is the correct location, according to the cemetery record.
I'm not sure what to think. The California Death Index has Francois Andre, 1909-1983. So I don't know where the Escloven name comes from.
I suggest you call the cemetery and find out if there are actually two different people, or if the year of birth on the marker is wrong.
|B.J. Waters||Francois Andre|
Hello! I am about to fulfill your photo request and just wanted you to know that the old cemetery database (now defunct) did not have his name correct. His full name is Francois Andre Escloven.
|J Bounds||RE: Lashburn Cemetery|
You're welcome! It was my pleasure.
