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.

Thank you for the clarifications on the Greenwood Cemeteries in Nashville, Davidson County, Tennessee.
With Best Regards,
|Joe Yount||John "Burton" Yount Incorrect. Please correct.|
I see where my father is listed on your listing and his father as well. The name is incorrect. My fathers middle initial was simply "B." It did not stand for Burton and neither did my grand fathers. There was always talk in my family of the "B." standing for Bunyan. When asked, my father always said the "B" was just that, the initial "B".

Mathie Morgan Memorial# 108470685. I believe this is Matthew Morgan son of James Allen "Jim Morgan and Kesiah Catherine Baggett Morgan. according to 1880 census records Matthew was born about 1877 living in District 20, Montgomery County, TN. Both his parents are also in Baggett Chapel Cemetery.

|Janice Hollandsworth||Clabe Kennard|
I have added the information that you sent and I checked the death certificate also. I hesitate to change the last name as the military records have Kennard and I do believe that the tombstone also will have that spelling. I will order a photo to see for sure.

The memorial is updated with the information you provided. Thanks.
|Mildred Fletcher||Bobbie Maurine Trotter|
Syd, just for your records, which you might or might not know. Bobbie Maurine Trotter's father was Herschel Edward Elrod, 21 FEB 1912-12 Feb 1964.
Thank you so much.
|Harriet W. Berry||Rains child at Mt Olivet|
Thanks for the information and correction! Hoping to find memorials for his parents one day. --H
