Bio Photo SONG OF THE RIVER"
The snow melts on the mountain
And the water runs down to the spring,
And the spring in a turbulent fountain,
With a song of youth to sing,
Runs down to the riotous river,
And the river flows on to the sea,
And the water again
Goes back in rain
To the hills where it used to be.
And I wonder if Life's deep mystery
Isn't much like the rain and the snow
Returning through all eternity
To the places it used to know.
For life was born on the lofty heights
And flows in a laughing stream
To the river below
Whose onward flow
Ends in a peaceful dream.
And so at last,
When our life has passed
And the river has run its course,
It again goes back,
O'er the selfsame track,
To the mountain which was its source.

So why prize life
Or why fear death,
Or dread what is to be?
The river ran its allotted span
Till it reached the silent sea.
Then the water harked back to the mountaintop
To begin its course once more.

So we shall run the course begun
Till we reach the silent shore,
Then revisit earth in a pure rebirth
From the heart of the virgin snow.
So don't ask why we live or die,
Or wither, or when we go,
Or wonder about the mysteries
That only God may know.

by William Randolph Hearst

MITCHELL, JONI
Yesterday, a child came out to wander
Caught a dragonfly inside a jar
Fearful when the sky was full of thunder
And tearful at the falling of a star

And the seasons they go 'round and 'round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We're captive on the carousel of time
We can't return we can only look behind
From where we came
And go round and round and round
In the circle game

Then, the child moved ten times 'round the seasons
Skated over ten clear frozen streams
Words like, "When you're older", must appease him
And promises of someday make his dreams

And the seasons they go 'round and 'round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We're captive on the carousel of time
We can't return we can only look behind
From where we came,
And go round and round and round
In the circle game

Sixteen springs and sixteen summers gone now
Cartwheels turn to car wheels through the town
And they tell him, "Take your time. It won't be long now.
'Til your drag your feet to slow the circles down"

And the seasons they go 'round and 'round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We're captive on the carousel of time
We can't return we can only look behind
From where we came
And go round and round and round
In the circle game

So the years spin by and now the boy is twenty
Though his dreams have lost some grandeur coming true
There'll be new dreams, maybe better dreams and plenty
Before the last revolving year is through.

And the seasons they go 'round and 'round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We're captive on the carousel of time
We can't return, we can only look behind
From where we came
And go round and 'round and 'round
In the circle game

And go 'round and 'round and 'round in the circle game.

RE: Fred Scheid
Hi. Thank you for updating Fred Scheid's memorial. I'm fairly new to Find-A-Grave. I think this is a great website. I decided to dig out obituaries I've accumulated over the years, and use them to supplement memorial pages that have minimal info.

William Pemberton
Barbara Ann, in beginning my research on my family tree, I discovered the William Pemberton memorial here and your name as the administrator of it. William and his wife, Rhoda Luck Pemberton, are my 4th great grandparents through the Pemberton line. My maternal grandmother , Lillie Carrington (born Pemberton), was the daughter of Curtis Pemberton. I am excited to know that William and Rhoda are also your 4th great grandparents! I am also interested to know any more on the Pemberton line into Virginia and beyond that you may have. Please feel free to contact me at f.kuemmerle@comcast.net Thanks! Fred Kuemmerle

My husband and I will be taking pictures of all of the memorials that you requested for Noel Cemetery in Noel, Missouri. Would you like for us to take a picture of her husband's headstone since we will be there and take care of it all at once? Let me know via email.

Pemberton Cemetery
Hello Barbara Ann,

While looking for more information on my fifth great grandfather, William Ogle, I found him and his son Daniel listed in a recent Ohio Genweb cemetery listing for Adams County. Someone had submitted the Pemberton (family) Cemetery. There were only 6 people listed. Daniel Ogle was listed as the husband of Rhoda Jane Pemberton. Rhoda and her parents William and Rhoda Luck Pemberton and her brother Nathaniel were the others on the list.

I did a casual search and did not find any other memorials for them so I created one for each of the six people there earlier this week. Not wanting to assume that I had not created duplicate memorials, I checked a little further and found your memorial for William. I noticed that you had recently received the transfer of Williams' memorial, since you are a relative. I did not see a link for Williams' wife Rhoda Luck or his other two children listed on the site.

Since the Pembertons were not in my line I was wondering if you would like to take charge of the ones I have created via transfer? If you would like to use any of the information that I included for William that you do not have feel free to do so and I can delete mine so there will not be a duplicate. I would like to retain the memorials for Daniel Ogle and his wife Rhoda Jane Pemberton Ogle.

Take a look at them and see what you think and you can let me know.
Here are the Find a grave numbers:
William Pemberton # 91738305
Rhoda Luck Pemberton # 91738361
Nathaniel Pemberton # 91738537

Sincerely, Ed Stahlnecker

Minnie Oates
I received a photo request for Minnie Oates. You listed a Skybuck Cemetery as her resting place. I noticed there was a problem reported. After doing some searching online, I found that she was laid to rest at the Rest Haven Cemetery in Sperry, OK. I will go over and see if I can find a grave marker for her.

Barbara -
I have transferred memorial over to you- as you are his relative.
I had read about the Pemberton family- while doing research of my family. And became interested in their history/story.
