Bio and Links
Bio Photo Finding the graves of ancestors can be an overwhelming challenge. What started out years ago as an innocent quest to find the graves of my grandparents has become my passion. Vacations often end up with side trips to libraries or cemeteries, camera in hand, documenting the final resting place of my ancestors and special people. It is my contribution to others who share the special connection to those who are gone, but not forgotten.

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.

James Hollinger Forbes
Hello! I am looking for information on James Hollinger Forbes as I think he may be my ancestor. I love the information you've put out. I was wondering if I could get links to your sources so I can review them myself to glean additional confirmation/information.
Thank you,
Sarah

If I am wrong forgive me but felt intrigued by a marker I found. During my research of the name I saw that your post and in it showed body lost or destroyed. I found her grave site off of GA HWY 87 appx 10 miles north of Cochran and have a picture of it. I registered on this site just to leave you a message. If you want more info on it please email. My name is Jay
Hope you find this helpful.

Bob Williams' memorial
I did not realize that a memorial had been created for my great uncle (my grandmother's brother) until I came across it today via ancestry.com. I created one after yours, but hoping that you could delete yours (memorial #55215221)as the memorial that I have for him (memorial #124507129) has him linked to his parents' memorials and has the cemetery that he is buried at along with picture of his headstone that I took. Thanks in advance.
