Bio Photo **THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN (via Alice Huitt Preston)

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 hollowed 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.

This is in reference to Arthur Hill Surrett.
his father Henry Surrett 1835/36 NC to 1860-1870 GA (died before the 1870 census) and mother was Mary A Mize Surrett, that 2nd married a Fred Fitzgibbon and lived to 1935. The Henry Surrett that you requested him to be connected to is NOT his father.
thank you.

Hi Ms. Worsham,

Thank you so much for the transfers! I have all ready entered quite a bit on them. I will be scanning in the letters and I also have a memorial card for Emma to scan - I will do all that soon. Please let me know if there's ever anything I can do for you.

Kind regards,

Dee

RE: William Sheldon Simms
Hello Joyce,

I see what you mean about the non-reversible link from Fannie to William, but not back. That is strange, usually Find A Grave figures all that out. Let me know if you get it resolved.

William and Fannie had a daughter Frances, who married Herschel E. Mize (her 2nd, his 3rd marriage). Are you related to Herschel somehow?

Regards,
Elliott
