Words are things; and a small drop of ink
Falling like dew upon a thought, produces
That which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think.

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 for that information Jerry! I will try to contact Pearl and see if we could brainstorm to find out where those records might be! Will let you know if I find anything out!

Grandpa Abe
Jerry,

First off, thank you for your service to our great country. I have not seen Abe's stone since I was a child, and is his great great grandson. I was doing some research on Chris Reiswig(moved to Harvey in 1948, my birth town), and having fun doing some research.

Thanks!

I can't find his death in ND in the ND Vital Stats. Are you sure he died in ND? I see the family trees in Ancestry have him dying in Dickinson, but didn't see any other reliable sources listed.

You sent an edit with his birth date as being Feb. 15, 1884. The ND Vital Stats show date as
Feb. 25, 1884.

I understand. Errors are made on headstones fairly often, but it's a matter of personal preference on how to handle those kind of problems.

Thank you.

RE: Ebenezer Congregational Church
Thanks Jerry - my great-grandparents (Friedrich and Magdalena Ammon) are buried there and my grandparents (Jacob and Ruth Ammon) were married there. I'd like to try and find a copy of their marriage record, and maybe some baptismal records if they're available, but just didn't know where to start looking!

Jerry,
I'm wondering where you found Wilhelmina's maiden name. I couldn't find it anywhere, but I don't have a death certificate either. I have asked his great niece if she knew Wilhelmina's maiden name, but she hasn't answered me yet.

I run into your tree fairly often, and really appreciate your work.
