Bio Photo 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.

That's okay. It is totally understandable. Is your daughter doing well?

RE: New Albany Cemetery in Mississippi
Hi,
It's me again. I was wondering if the weather was better and if you had a chance to go to the New Albany cemetery in Union county, Mississippi to look for Anne/ Ann Beard?
Just wondering,

The Baggett Family's
I live in southwest Louisiana, and have found that my 3d great grandfather lied in Miss in 1850 (aged 70) and was born in Robeson co. N.C. Others in Northampton and Bertie county. The standards and ethics along with their beliefs, set the stage for me and my relatives lives. If only the many could only take a moment to be so grateful for them.

One headstone in two cemeteries
Malvin E. Champion #92965426 and Vera E. Champion #92965940 are husband/wife with double headstone but headstone picture is in two cemeteries. Do you know which is the correct cemetery?
