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.

|James Snow||RE: Ray Woodworth|
My e-mail is: firstname.lastname@example.org Once again, thanks for your fine work!
|James Snow||RE: Ray/Roy Woodworth|
I have never known or seen him named as 'Roy' Woodworth. I am assuming the burial card and the death index are both what could be termed 'honest mistakes'. Both you and I have been around the block a few times and know how difficult it is to tell the difference between an 'a' and an 'o' in written records. In fact, I have some information that Ray's real name was Rhodelphus or Radelphus (though I can't prove it). So there is a burial or interment card for the plot? Would you give me the specifics (I need a citation for my book).
|James Snow||Arphema Woodworth|
Thanks so much fro the info on Arphema! Is there a source for this? I need a source citation for my book. Your help is greatly appreciated, and God Bless You!
|James Snow||Ray Woodworth at Monrovia|
Thanks so much for updating Ray's memorial! I found a spreadsheet of the California Death Index at FamilySarch. Although the sheet reads 'Roy Woodworth' it certainly must be Ray. Again, many thanks!
