I live in Southeast Missouri & I think too many of our cemeteries are being lost. I try my best to document what I find in hopes that it helps others.|
Looking for burial info on James Socrates Richey(in AR) he married Maryann Oldham 1-16-1881,had a son Oliver Jackson.
Also looking for info on Robert Lee Mize Sr. family.
I enjoy looking thru cemeteries,new and old.
I will gladly transfer any name I have added to you at your request.(Except my family names.) :)
Thank you to everyone who leaves tokens for my family. It is a pleasure to leave tokens for yours.
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.
THE CEMETERY PHOTOGRAPHER
Wandering among the stones I see
The stones so weathered and worn
Tis difficult to find the date
On which the babe was born
I stare at the stone and am struck with awe
At the life that I knew was gone
This was someone's child, a babe so sweet
With loved ones to carry on
So I take a photo for all to see
For the family that remains
An everlasting memory of
A child of God's domain
I brush the weeds back from the stone
And say a silent prayer
For the babes that had no chance to live
And for mothers everywhere
The dove calls out it's mourning song
Among the stones so still
Echoes of the woes, through time
The choirs of despair
The stone will someday perish
The flowers will be gone
But a photo now remains of this
Their memory lives on!
And so my friend, don't hesitate
To film the weathered stone
Those who live within your hearts
Are never truly gone

Thank you for trying to provide a photo of Find A Grave Memorial# 74223221.
How sad that this cemetery is now a subdivision. They must have moved these graves elsewhere.
Doyou live close enough to find out where?
|Pat Oder||Re: Marker for Earl and Ethel Perkins|
Thank you so much for taking the time to take this photo and post it. Earl and Ethel were my great uncle and aunt. Their grandchildren and I truly appreciate your efforts.

Thank you for the photo.
|KSparkman||RE: Stella (AnthonyAppleby)|
You should have her obituary now.
|KSparkman||RE: Stella (AnthonyAppleby)|
Yes, she remarried late in life as a widow. Her name is listed as Appleby in social security death indexes and her obituary. Like many families, the children placed her in the family plot under her name as their mother. It was a preplaced double marker with the Anthony name already on it. Nonetheless, her death name was Appleby. I will send you her obituary under separate cover that you can add to her bio.
|Mayflower Pilgrim 332||Paul Richard Noel|
Thanks so much for the beautiful photos on the above site. I appreciate your time in visiting and photographing Paul's gravesite. Richard
