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: Nellie Bartell Photo
Thanks Chris,

You then have the same data I have. I will let the family know but I may just have a marker added for Nellie as they once paid for my grandfather's burial.

Thanks so much for your thorough work,

Nellie Bartell Photo
Thanks so much for going out there to take the photo. I can see that there is no headstone which while disappointing I know happened from time to time.

To leave no stone unturned, is it possible you looked at the wrong Lot ? Albert and Nellie are in different lots but next to one another. I know the answer seems obvious but I just want to be sure.

Thanks again for your work,

Oh my gosh!!! A HUGE thank you for this photo of Mr Davis. On Fold 3 we could find no records for sure and now we know he was in the army. His first name has been spelled a dozen ways and never did we think it was this. You are so very helpful. You have no idea. We are going to find a living relative for his son yet so that the son may be buried.
You are the best.

Thank you so much for this photo. It confirms the dates which were confusing in our research to locate next of kin for her son. The fact that you did not photograph other Davis graves leads me to believe perhaps there were no others nearby?
You truly did a service to help her veteran son find some peace.
Thank you.
