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.

Being from the NE states and far away, would you tell me if the list of names in the Desert Memorial Park is for veterans only and if so where are the spouses buried. How could I find a list of the names on the wall or are the ones shown on the wall the same as listed? Thanks.
|Nancy Jane Faulk White Adams||RE: Robert Stacy|
No rush, thanks so much. I have a new 6 mo. old Grand daughter so I know how busy you are. Congrats. Hope you have fun with all of them. I have 3 grand children 16 yr. 12 yr. & 6 mo. all from my daughter. The Boys love Little Miss Kira. She is so spoiled already.
Have a GREAT Easter.

I have been searching for some graves in the White Oak Cemetery and from the list I got from the caretaker of the cemetery there are no Shoulders buried there. Is there somewhere else I can look for you?

Do you mind if I use the pict. in my tree?
Thanks so much,

Hi, I am related to the NIBLETT family and saw your flower on a STACY memorial. I have a tree on tribalpages. I would like to add your email to it. You will get updates every other month on what has been done. Thanks so much for working on Find A Grave.

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

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.
|Betty Scott Marx||RE: James Sherman Beasley|
You are most welcome. I love your yellow rose of Texas as I grew up in Texas.
