Bio Photo 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.

Christine Hickllin
Your edit suggests that her maiden name was Baxtrom. Her son John B Hicklin is entered in Find A Grave as John Blackstrom Hicklin. Which name is her correct name ?

RE: George Henry Bradshaw
Section 4 makes much more sense for that cemetery. I'll look for him next time I'm there. I have a map of the cemetery.

While I was not able to provide you with a headstone picture as requested, I was able to locate a death certificate. I hope this helps in your search.

Memorial Park Cemetery where the burial is supposed to be is an extremely large cemetery (41,000+ interments). Staff at the cemetery will only provide grave locations to family members. Please contact the office to obtain plot information and add it to the memorial page and/or your photo request, so the volunteer photographer can find the grave marker for you. The office can be reached at 901-767-8930 or 888-943-7275. Ask for Paul Campbell. Once you obtain this information, please resubmit your photo request.

Hi Judy
Just letting you know I located Ina's grave to take the photo today. Her name marker was completely covered over with grass and dirt. I uncovered it enough to tell it is her, but will need to go back and take tools to do a better job. I will re-post another photo when I have it uncovered.
Thanks
Fay

Hi Judy,

You were correct. I changed her name and updated her memorial. Looks like I am going to have to check everything people send me.

Thank you very much,
Cheryl
