Love of Thousands."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I've worked on Mound Cemetery in Pike Co. for many years. I've taken the time to walk this cemetery, documenting each grave with pictures. Some I've yet to get in pictures but it's my wish to see it all documented in pictures. Right now I'm working on biographies for my Mound Cemetery memorials. I'm going by the alphabet, A-Z until I have them completed. My hopes are that Mound Cemetery will someday open like a book, as suggested by Find A Grave for each cemetery. I hope after I'm gone, someone else will take the time to do as I've done with this cemetery. It holds special ties with me in that this is where my loved ones are at rest and where I will be laid to rest.

I'd also like to say while walking this cemetery on separate occasions stones have come up missing. I have pictures of them in Memorials but no stone is on the grave now.

Feel free to use my gravestone pictures. I take them for those whose health prevents them from getting to the cemetery, or for those who can't make it because of distance but mostly to preserve history.

I love the new edit system! I think it's great! I want to thank everyone who are so speedy with my edit requests & welcome all your edits. I try to get to them immediately.

I'll gladly transfer & if I've made a duplicate, it wasn't intentional & I will gladly remove. I'm not perfect but then neither are you. A polite heads up is all that's necessary for me to correct my errors.

Please don't post obituaries/bio's to flower/note section or correct me there. Send an Edit & I will make the changes. Find A Grave specifically states: "Quote" "We want Find A Grave to remain a place of respect and remembrance, just like a real cemetery.
Do not leave derogatory or politically charged notes. Inappropriate notes will be removed, and individuals who continue to leave derogatory or politically charged notes will have their account closed. **Additionally, biographical information and obituaries are not to be included in a virtual flower. Limit flowers to no more than one flower per memorial per day." "Unquote"

Prayer for Genealogists
"Lord, help me dig into the past
And sift the sands of time
That I might find the roots that made
This family tree of mine.

Lord, help me trace the ancient road
On which my fathers trod
And led them through so many lands
To find our present sod.

Lord, help me find an ancient book
Or dusty manuscript
That's safely hidden now away
In some forgotten crypt.

Lord, let it bridge the gap that haunts
My soul when I can't find
The missing link between some name
That ends the same as mine."

Thank you so much for documenting Mr. Corbin's grave. He was a famous Ohio baseball player and my husband's great uncle.

Thank You
Thank you for all you have done to document loved ones buried in Mound Cemetary. My father is the only member of my family that is burried there but I was surprised to see a picture of his headstone and his information on this site!

Thanks Again,
Daughter of Forest Charles

RE: Sarah & Charles
Do you suppose there is really a stone in both cemeteries? I wouldn't have known about the one for sure if I didn't have the death record.
It surely was confusing wasn't it? Thanks!
