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!|

"A US military veteran is someone who, at one point in his/her life, wrote a blank check made payable to 'The United States of America,' for an amount of 'up to and including my life.'"
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.

Hi Syd., Thank you for advising me of the duplication. I deleted the one. I was not aware of it.

I moved the memorial to Mt Olivet even though the remaining family members are sure he was buried in Springhill. I have tried calling Springhill but didn't get any answers. Since others will see the death cert online, I will just move the memorial and hope the family just got confused.
Thanks for the concern,

|Rena (Broome) Owens||RE: Sorry about that, but ~|
I'm sorry I didn't realize I should have sent you the info instead of sending edits to Find a Grave. But I'm glad that you figured it out that it was just transposed with the last names.
Lucy Ann Broome Suiter and Isham James Suiter were my great aunt/uncle.
Martha Louise and Amos Byard son is named Terry Lee Byard, I haven't really looked further into his history.
Are you related to this family? Maybe we are distant relatives as well?

Thanks so much for the suggestions for his Memorial. I didn't realize that Vallie wasn't listed. Many thanks! Carol
|Sally Heys||Wair Family|
Thank you for adding John Taylor(139744433) and Tennie (138845547) Wair to findagrave. And thanks for including their children's names. Their son, John Edward Wair, was the father of two of my mother's first cousins. They were Martha Beliles (97986709) and Cornelia McWhorter (97862915). I have been trying to find their mother and father in findagrave but no luck. Any chance John Edward Wair is also buried in the Wair cemetery? Their mother was Lorena Jenkins Wair Morris. I can't find her either. Any help would be most appreciated! Thanks for all you do! Sally
