Welcome to my profile.|
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.

Flora Eldora Norris is my Great Grandmother. If you aren't related would it be possible to have her transferred to me? Thank you.
|Kathy ||Cara Ramsay #90202171|
Thank you for the edit on her middle name and for adding the death notice to her profile. May I ask for permission to use the death notice on my Ancestry family tree? Are you related to Cara? Now to find out where her mother is buried... Thank you much, Kathy

Thank you for your kindness in transferring my nephew's memorial to me.
Appreciate the updates!
|Michael DeLost||RE: Robert and Dorothy Cover|
Thanks for your kind words Chloe. I've fulfilled Robert & Dorothy's request. Please check Robert's years of birth/death as it appeared they did not match the memorial stone.
I still have a photo of Henry Cover if interested.
Thanks for the puppy comment. It was 5 years ago today that my litter of 10 Brittany's was born. I was up all night.

Thank you for the excellent information regarding 2nd Lieut. John S. Irgens, 15th Reg't., Wisconsin Inf.
|Ken B||Harry Young at Greenfield|
I was at Greenfield this past week to fulfill your request for Harry Young. He is buried in the Crew family plot but he has no marker of his own. I'm posting a photo of the family plot with a white cross where his ashes are buried (Section 32, Lot 166, in the center of Grave 3) along with Grace May Young. She has no memorial so I will create one & post the photo there as well. The Crew family plot encompasses Lots 165 & 166, six graves in each (memorials being created as well).

|Carrie Coyle||RE: Isaac McMillan|
Hi there! Thank you for that info! I wasn't aware he had another son. Was he married twice? I only know of his children Algernon (Algie, my great grandmother) & Cuvius, whom he had with wife Mary Priscilla Carey-McMillan.I do know he also has 2 headstones, and is psychically buried in Ohio. He and Mary have a plot/headstone in Prospect Hills Cemetery in Cassopolis, MI. Where I live. I just updated with a photo. My grandmother tells me there is a memorial headstone also for him in Wabash Indiana, where he served as a Captain in the army during the civil war.
