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.

photo you posted
Curious about the photo you posted to Julia Bernard Barnsley Baltzelle-Von Schwartz ( 35131607) Can you identify any of the people in it? I am researching Saylors. The family history on this particular line is very interesting. Thanks, Capt.

Glover family at St James Episcopal Cemetery
Hello, I have a question for you. I see where you took most of the pictures for the Glover family. There is a Joseph Glover that does not have a picture. Do you know if he has a marker in the cemetery. He has a brother, Thomas Worth Glover that is in this cemetery. I believe this is Joseph Glover born Jan 13, 1846 and died March 3 1902. According to military records he fought in 7th ALA Cal Co I. He is noted in a cemetery book as being at Guntersville City Cemetery in Marshall Co. AL, but a marker was never found(Find A Grave # 91084469). I have noticed that there is a Joseph Glover posted in St James Episcopal cemetery. Trying to find this gentleman for some family. Thanks for your time and help.

Hi DAvis,
I went to the cemetery today and they have a wonderful listing of all interred there. I took a photograph of the listing you were looking for, and it says he was removed to another cemetery. I'm happy to pass along the photo if you give me an email to which I can send it. Thanks!

RE: Helloo...
Hello, Davis. - There is a copy of my book on my Cobb County Wallaces in the Marietta library. We can discuss how or what you might wish to use from it. I would be delighted to make more people aware of their lives and contributions to the area. The title is: Descendants and Kin of Toliver Wallace (1809-1882) . . . There is a section on Bird Wallace who really deserves a book all his own - what a character he was!

RE: Joseph Edward Kienel
Specialty was on Ga. 293 (aka Old 41/Main St.) just over the Cobb-Bartow County line on the right heading north. A newer building, circa 1960, is there now and operated by a different company.
Thanks for the update on the Quarles family.
