I'm a dedicated & fanatic family historian & have been on THE QUEST since 1955. I can concentrate on my ancestors but get easily side-tracked by in-laws & the cousins of cousins of cousins, if you know what I mean, & if you love family history as much as I do, then you do know!|

THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
By Thelma Greene Reagan
Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other 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.

|Mel ski||Jessie E Davis|
You have a memorial on Jessie E Davis. Someone added the grave photo. Memorial #120064761. The gravestone clearly says Jessie Eatherly Davis. Eatherly is her maiden name. I have more info if you would like to add it. Her full name is Jessie Mai (Eatherly) Davis. Daughter of William James & Nancy Rebecca (Miles) Eatherly. She was the wife of John Benjamin Davis. (John Benjamin Davis 1859-1945 Woodlawn Cemetery, Nashville, Davidson, TN.) I have been looking for Jessie. Thanks to you I found her. Thanks So much.

Thanks so much!

Thank you for pointing out that Dewey died in Davidson County rather than Jackson County, TN. I have made the correction. Appreciate the help!

Hi, Corrections made. Hope all is ok now. Would you like "ownership" of it? Would be happy to transfer to you.

Thanks for the heads-up. I sometimes miss the originals. It's gone.

Thanks for your message. I'm sorry I disturbed you. I have found it easier to send a message to edit to MERGE duplicates rather than upset long-time contributors to Find a Grave when I notice they have duplicates. :-/ wry lopsided smile
I do appreciate your kind words to this "newbie" in the past.

|acybersleuth||earlier question on Ollie Dewberry|
Never mind my earlier question - I found the reference on the 1910 census to "number of children born (7), number of children living (6).
I should have checked there first!
Thanks for your help (and for your patience!),
|acybersleuth||Ollie Elizabeth Owen Dewberry|
Thanks again for the transfer on this memorial!
Quick question: on her bio, you mention a "child Dewberry" that I have no information on. This unknown child was not mentioned on her husband's memorial.
Do you remember where that information came from? Is this perhaps an infant that died young?
I would like to try and find more information on this child, perhaps a name, or birth and death date or location information.
