Bio Photo Please use the new Edit System when possible for making any name or date changes to a memorial. You add the changes yourself and I will approve them or contact you for further clarification. The new systems also allows you to track your change request as you get notified when they are approved.

I am happy to add or correct information for you on memorials. I am somewhat liberal with transfers of anyone not related to me, but please STATE YOUR RELATIONSHIP. Don't just say "they are in my tree", "I'm related", or "I'm family", that won't make it happen.

Please also feel free to contact me via email or post a message regarding any additional related family members. Perhaps we are cousins!

THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN

Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other 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.

RE: Ralph & Ida Mattice
Thanks you so much for the Mattice transfers. You emulate, what I feel is the true spirit and value of Find A Grave, the reuniting families and honoring those who have passed on before. Keep up the good work!

You and I are related somehow. This is what I have, so far, when it comes to the "Perdew" name...

#1~ Harriet S. Mapstead (my Great Aunt), married Doug Perdew.

#2~ Louis "Lou" Clinton Lamb (01/02/1897-09/18/1977), is the son of Edgar Clifford Lamb & Mary "Molly" Matilda Ellison Lamb (03/??/1870-??/??/1925). Lou married Mary "Mamie" Perdew on 11/30/1918.

#3~ Theodore "Ted" Roosevelt "Babe" Lamb (06/15/1905-08/07/1968), also a son of Ed & Molly, was married to Hazel Perdew.

I have a lot more if you want. Thank you for asking what I meant. I probably gave you more than you wanted.. Lol! God bless! If there is anything else you can clue me in about, please, please do so without hesitation.

Thanx Miss Chloe for your email. Graydon'a brother Tisdale Irving Vanatta married Ruth Clark Wells who was my second cousin. The Vanatta's are a very old New England family, very distinguished. They basically founded NJ and Aaron Vanatta was in Washington's regiment. Both the Tisdale/Walker/Vanattas are all descended from Thomas Rogers. They were all Gretchen's direct ancestors. If your father knows the family perhaps they'd like to know. But of course some people could not care less. Thanx again. Happy Easter.

RE: Thank you Larry!
Blessed Easter to my Find A Grave Pin Up Girl! I think you look like a famous Movie Star or Rock Music Queen. Perhaps I have seen you on the tv show "Dancing With the Stars."

Anyway, spring is here and it is off to the local cemeteries, finally. Wishing you the best of the best, if not better than best! :-)

Miss Chloe, Did you know Gretchen Murphy and her family? I recently found out that her father Grayden VanAtta was a direct descendant of Thomas Rogers who came over on the Mayflower in 1620. They might like to know.

Just sent you parents for Alfred Waterman, he is my grand uncle so wanted to leave thanks for the pictures as well. Their son Robert is buried with them as well and was curious if there was a marker for him.
