**THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN (via Alice Huitt Preston)
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.

The picture is up for Salis. The middle initial is a K on the stone. I think it should be a C for Cary.

|Rachel McCulloch||RE: Stanley|
Thank you so very much!!!
|Rachel McCulloch||RE: Stanley|
Your the best!!
May i ask you one more question?
That picture of the 4 children is it a paper on cardboard? Or is it totally paper?
I have to ask you about the picture of Stanley.
I have to say first that i think it is a wonderful picture of the family BUT Isham Dies in 1848. Your picture appears to be made of paper. In 1848 the only type of pictures where the Daguerreotype. If i had to guess it appears that they are of the same age. I have to wonder if this isn't Isham and his sisters.
I would love your thought!!!!!!!!!!!!!
|Louis Mosier||Thanks for the Photo!|
