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.

U asked for legible fotos of Mary Jane's marker.
sorry to say that the (3) I took are no better than the posted ones. Wasn't dark, full sun but the marker has since been covered in moss and other impurities. I did -not- have my marker cleaning kit with me so I will turn this request back into the system and will make an attempt later to run back there (with sunlite and kit) and take care of the request for ya.
Later, James Coston

|Find Me If You Can||RE: John Bryant Memorial # 701161|
Judy..you have the memorial number wrong..it WAS 7011616...
the additional info you mentioned was added by someone named Andrews..how it got there I do not know .. it showed Ancestry.com..so it is possible that if you post additional info on Ancestry it will connect to the findagrave memorial. News to me and the first time I had seen this.
I could not edit or remove the info since I did not post it so I deleted the memorial..you can repost it if you wish.
I connected her husband James Henry Pattman. Are you related? She was my second cousin.

Judy it's been so long that I did that Memorial. I am pretty sure I got the information from SS Death Index or/and Calif Death Index. If you like I can transfer him to you. Let me know.
God Bless Patsy
