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.

******************************************

The Final Gift

Scatter me not to restless winds
Nor scatter my ashes to the sea
Remember now those years gone by
When loving gifts I gave to thee
Remember now the happy times
The family ties we shared
Don't leave my resting place unmarked
As though you never cared
Deny me not one final gift
For all who come to see
A single lasting proof that says
I loved....and you loved me

D.J. Kramer

RE: Alex Chalmers
I'm sorry to hear that the headstones have been vandalized. I don't understand how anyone can do something like that.

The cemetery could be wrong. I have sent for death certificates that tells which cemetery they are buried in. I have a LOT of relatives buried in Calvary Cemetery. The death certificate says they are buried there. Calvary will tell me there is NO record of that person being buried there. I have to call several times before I can get someone to find the burial record. My ex-husband's great-grandfather is buried there - I have a copy of his death certificate. They have NO record of him. I've been fighting with them for over 6 months for them to find him. It's a HUGE cemetery. They tried to tell me that he may not have a stone but his son died at 19 and I know he had a headstone for him. They have NO record for him either. Drives me crazy.

Good luck! Been there, done that.

Alex Chalmers
Hi,

I requested a photo of his headstone on Find A Grave. I got this reply tonight.

Greetings from Find A Grave,

We are writing to let you know that a Find A Grave volunteer has reported a problem with your photo request for Alex Chalmers.

The general problem they reported is:
Cemetery office has no record of this person

They also reported, specifically:
The only Chalmers in Hillside Cemetery is a Millie Sophia Chalmers.

Due to this problem, we believe that this photo request can not be fulfilled. As a result, we are removing it. If you can fix the problems that were reported and believe a photo can be acquired, please feel free to make a new request.

Memorial 20657525
I think the name on this memorial should be Leonora Todd Phillips, not Leonard Phillips. She was married to Albert R. Phillips, also buried in this cemetery, and died on the same date as shown in your memorial.

Memorial #16150231 Rigmaiden
Hello: I noticed that there are now two Flora E. Baggett Rigmaiden memorials, yours and #90170607. Flora was my Aunt and I know that her gravesite is in Oroville, CA not Whispering Pines Cemetery in Plumas County. Also, the other memorial has more information. Would you consider taking yours off to avoid confusion?
Thank you.

Do you know for a fact they died in Santa Clara County or you guess because they are buried there.

George Abbay memorial #88275258
Morning,

I'm adding the photos I took the other day at Mountain View Cemetery... and i got to your memorial for George off of the children. Would you like to add Mountain View as his final resting place, or at least he has a marker.

Thanks Kathy
