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.

|Ricky Parham||RE: I have transferred ~|
Thanks for the transfer...I concur with your assumption...During the search of records, we noticed that Sophia Coleman (wife of Allen Parham) was born in 1871. We also noticed that Allen's son, Johnnie William Parham, was born in 1879. Because the difference in age is minimal, we made note of the fact that Johnnie William's mother may have been someone other than Sophia Coleman. In the 1910 U.S. Census, it is recorded that Sophia had three children that was alive. Also it is indicated that this is the second marriage for both Allen and Sophia. Since the number of children born of Sophia was three (as listed in the 1910 U.S. Census), we believe the three daughters are the three children of Sophia which are indicated on the 1910 U.S. Census. We believe John William's mother may have been someone other than Sophia.
From oral history given by Johnnie William Parham's daughter Sallie George Parham, it was told that Johnnie William Parham's mother name was Sophia. Also, Sophia Coleman is listed on John William Parham's death certificate as mother of John William Parham. Thus, we listed Johnnie William Parham as a child of Allen and Sophia Parham with a footnote of the above info.
Nice again, Syd, thank you so very much!

Use the Edit button which is on each memorial. it allows you to link parents, edit dates, locations and bios.
MR Wood is a famous record so when you use the edit button. F-A-Grave will update it. All famous records have to be updated by them.

Please check my entries and let me know if they are correct, ect. Also I note a different year of birth on the marker for Cecil?
It's great to be able to better tell the story behind these two markers. Thank you for all your work.

|Mary Bob McClain||RE: I'm happy to transfer ~|
Thamk you so much. It really means a lot to me
I have 8 great grandfathers buried in that cemetery from 1771 to date. Almost eveyone in that cemetery is related to me.
I think you are correct. Check the memorial for the note I added to the bio.(128422795 Find A Grave #.) Also changed the date. Thank you. MHN
