Welcome to my profile.|
Everyone who knows me knows that I love getting to know my ancestors and have spent the better part of the last thirty years devoted to it. I enjoy walking through cemeteries and looking at memorial stones. I find it relaxing and peaceful and have met some of the nicest people through Find A Grave!
It makes me happy to help someone add a page to their history and keep the person's memory alive. I also feel that it may give a family a type of closure to know where a loved one is located.
My pictures are not copyrighted. You may certainly use my monument photos for your PERSONAL PRIVATE family trees. I am finding my pictures on Ancestry without source, and not linked, which is illegal. IF YOU CANNOT PROPERLY SOURCE OTHER'S MATERIAL, DO NOT USE IT!!
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.
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 specific relationship.
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.

Thanks for 'going the extra mile' with the census info on Ray. Ray's (second) wife, Arphema, went back to Idaho sometime after 1930 and is apparently buried there.
|Marcia ||RE: Rev Ole Andreas Mellby|
It is still there. She spelled Mellby as Melby so it doesn't show up if you type Mellby.

You're welcome and thank you for posting it in the first place. Your efforts are very much appreciated
|BuzBailey||RE: Baileys and Brachalls|
Thanks Chloe. Yes, it's been a few years. I've moved across the country in the meantime. You have certainly be a busy contributor! I've been meaning to ask if you are willing to transfer the Bailey and Brachall memorials? I do have some new information for almost all of them. I'm just very slow in verifying and sourcing what is made public. I will email you privately.....

Sadly, I have no pic of Philura. I'm looking for the first name of Mr. Bacon. I'll let you know if I find it.

I am also a g-g-g-grandaughter of John and Philura Dunton, through John Walter's line. I was thrilled to discover the fine work you have done in posting Dunton family information. I added photos to my grandparents' pages, John Walter Dunton and Mary Ellen Askey Dunton. I found these pictures in my mother's things after she died in 2002. I'm finally getting around to researching my mother's side of our family. Thank you again for your excellent work on behalf of our family.
