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.

Are the Hicklin family ancestors of yours. I will gladly transfer them to you if you are related.
|Wes Phinney||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 ?
|Judy K. Roberts||Laval Bagby|
If Laval is your family and you would like to manage his memorial, just use the edit tab to send me your contributor number. I would be happy to transfer!

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.
|Catherine Hosea||RE: James M Malone|
You are most welcome!
|Fay C. Leonard||Ina Shouders Birdwell|
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.
|Cheryl Hanson||Nettie Belle Aery|
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,
