THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY |
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 hallowed 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.

|Marlene Paulsen ||Helen Willie Grave stone|
I was at Helens grave stone today to fulfill the photo request from find a grave. When I got the information from the records office I was given different information for her plot. Helenís plot information I was given was Block A which is the same but the section is Section 7 instead of A and there is no grave 74 it is lot A -3.
I also received a map that has a yellow highlighted section where Helen and Ernest Willie is buried. If you would like that with your permission I can add a picture and include that also on find a grave if you would like me to. Just let me know if you would like me to do that.
Thank you for your time.

The marker of Marshall and Florence Kemp was black and high gloss with very delicate etching. I was not happy with the quality of the photograph, but I had to take it from a distance and at a low angle to reduce reflections that were making the script impossible to read. Please feel free to repost your request.
|Joanie||Myrtle Whitlock Brooks|
Judy, I note the request for photo of graves of Great Aunt Myrtle Whitlock Brooks and her husband Tom. I was not aware of any other graves related to Whitlock family were located in Staggs Prairie other than my Grandfather and infant Uncle until I saw your posting. I went out to the cemetery to see if there are any remnants of old markers. I saw many of the metal markers which were illegible and rusted but without a map of the burial locations, it was to no avail. Do you know who to contact to look at a burial map? I had to do that at another cemetery regarding a g.g. grandfather. If you have any contact information I would appreciate it. Thanks. Joanie

|D. O.||James Long|
Hi. James Long, buried in Desert Memorial, is entered twice. Your posting is dated in October of 2011, which is later than the first posting dated in September, 2011.
His wife just died and I have posted her obit and I will now link her to her husband whose posting was dated in September.
Keep up the good work of walking through that cemetery and posting the folks there.
