THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN

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.

RE: Harold Arthur Miller request
Thanks for the date....appreciate it. I had found a Harold G Miller, by accident while at the cemetery. Was hoping it was him. :o)

RE: Spanish American War Graves at Fairhaven
A Lawn location is all I need. I usually walk the entire Lawn looking for other Spanish American War (SAW) graves that might have been missed during the research process as there is no one complete list of SAW graves for Orange County. And my search list has some blanks for Lawn locations so I hope to come across that grave.

Here is the list I could use a Lawn location:
Memorial# 141603192 (Clarence Norman)
Memorial# 142225630 (Charles Dixon)
Memorial# 141603110 (John Barnhart)
Memorial# 116127093 (James Weston)
Memorial# 140894003 (Ralph Mosher)
Memorial# 124493221 (Clifton Overshiner)

Thank you!

Spanish American War Graves at Fairhaven
I'm currently locating some 120-plus Spanish American War graves at Fairhaven. I'm getting down to the last of my search list. I have maybe a handful of graves that you entered but have no Lawn location listed. Is it possible that I can send you a list of who I am looking for, if you could provide a Lawn location if you have?

Thank you,
Charles Beal
