**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.

Hooper Home Place
Davis, Was real excited to see a picture of the Hooper Home Place. My Grandmother was Edith Newton who's Father was Thomas Newton Son of Nancy McWilliams Daughter of Thomas Hooper. My GrandMother Edith spent many of her younger years at the Hooper Home and told me a lot about it but only to now have seen what it looks like. THANKS for posting. I would love to know how you came upon this picture and what relative may have had it. Again that's for posting

George Beamon McCollum
George's parents are Jesse Miller McCollum (1861-1926) and Nancy Louise Miller (1863-1944). When I get all of Jesse's records complied and get his life story written I want to transfer Jesse back into your care. May take me a couple of weeks with the holidays coming up. I will let you know before I transfer him back. :) J

Jesse Miller Mccollum (1811)
Davis, I am having great luck finding Jesse's records on ancestry.com.(10 so far and still adding). I think (?) I have found his military record. Any chance you know what regiment he was in. Thanks, Jill

RE: George Felton McCollum
I keep running into conflicting information. David's middle name could be different, with initial "I".

I found Luda's obituary and it says she was born 15 May 1859.

It also says she was buried by her husband (who predeceased her by 11 years) in the Russell cemetery, but doesn't say what city. Having a difficult time finding the correct location.

RE: George Felton McCollum
This is what I've gleaned from census & other records on Ancestry, but can't vouch for absolute accuracy. For instance, Luda McCollum's death age is listed as 80, but if the birth month & year in the 1900 census is correct, she would have been 69 when she died. Needs more scrutiny.

Father:
David Washington McCollum
b. Nov 1860 Georgia
d. abt 1928

Mother:
Luda Louisiana Martin
b. May 1870 Georgia
d. 19 Dec 1939 Bartow Co, GA

Elizabeth married Jeremiah Huff in 1853 and had three more children.
