Finding the graves of ancestors can be an overwhelming challenge. What started out years ago as an innocent quest to find the graves of my grandparents has become my passion. Vacations often end up with side trips to libraries or cemeteries, camera in hand, documenting the final resting place of my ancestors and special people. It is my contribution to others who share the special connection to those who are gone, but not forgotten. |

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.

|Bella (Pace)Conner||Connecting dots through the Coombs line|
I am a recent "convert" to seeking my genealogy line. The one thing that has helped me is a family book that was researched by my great Aunt, and was published the year I was born - 1952. Needless to say, she has long passed away, and now that I am using her as my departure point, I have so many questions and no one here to answer! I see where it appears that (I think it is) Degory Priest (or one of his grandchildren by the last name of Coombs). I have tried using my Great Aunt's lineage, but am stuck! Starting from Abraham Coombs (2x G Grandfather) back: Samuel; Noah; Dnaiel; "John" (one of many?); then here is where SHE has things no one else in the internet community has: RICHARD; FRANCIS; JOHN JR (or JOHN III); JOHN SR. (or maybe JOHN JR.; to SARAH PRIEST COOMBS.
Could you please email me? email@example.com I feel so lost! Thank you!

I'm sorry. Continued from previous message. I wonder if it is a match to:

|Laura Tully||Infant daughter Thomas|
Hey, you may want to check Find A Grave Memorial# 37608211 as it is a marker in Raker Cemetery in Wakulla Co., FL with a photo of the marker that reads, "infant daughter of Brock and Sallie Thomas age 11 months" It has no years on it and no name, just infant daughter. I wonder if it this is a match?

Please help me locate the father of Alvin Benjamin Rhodes.
Alvin was born 1904 and died 1973. His father was Thomas Rhodes from the Crawfordville, Ga. area.

|Colman||RE: Michael and Mary Garrigan|
This family grows larger the more I look into it, and there are some names that reappear often, in this case "Bridget."
"Bridget" is the daughter of Mary (Keegan) Garrigan and Michael Garrigan.
"Bridget Alice" is the daughter of Michael's brother, Philip Garrigan, and Philip's wife Alice (Toher) Garrigan.
There are other Bridget's as well.
When you link "Bridget Alice" to Philip and Alice Garrign, you will see that she is the sister of Bishop Philip J. Garrigan.
This family is full of interesting people!
I am a descendant of Michael Garrigan and Mary (Keegan) Garrigan.

I see that you recently left flowers for Michael Garrigan and Mary (Keegan) Garrigan. Are you related?
