Bio and Links
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 hallowed 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.

john randolph lamb
Greetings. I submitted the Find A Grave # for John Randolph Lamb's father. I was careless in that I did not double check the Find A Grave #. Therefore I submitted the wrong number.

The correct number for Mr. Lamb is 179088490. This day I added the senior Mr. Lamb to Find A Grave.

Greenwood Cemetary Request
Please find out as much info as you can about the location of the stone. I was there today 12/23/2016 and it was tough to find stones. There wasn't an office or anyone on the property and for some reason all of the street/lot signs were painted over in black. I will try again another time.

Kemp Photograph

The marker of Marshall and Florence Kemp was black and high gloss with very delicate etching. I was not happy with the quality of the photograph, but I had to take it from a distance and at a low angle to reduce reflections that were making the script impossible to read. Please feel free to repost your request.

Myrtle Whitlock Brooks
Judy, I note the request for photo of graves of Great Aunt Myrtle Whitlock Brooks and her husband Tom. I was not aware of any other graves related to Whitlock family were located in Staggs Prairie other than my Grandfather and infant Uncle until I saw your posting. I went out to the cemetery to see if there are any remnants of old markers. I saw many of the metal markers which were illegible and rusted but without a map of the burial locations, it was to no avail. Do you know who to contact to look at a burial map? I had to do that at another cemetery regarding a g.g. grandfather. If you have any contact information I would appreciate it. Thanks. Joanie
