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 I am in hopes that you would transfer these two gravesights to me. They are my great grandparents and I own most of their pictures and I also visit their graves along with my mother, Elsie, about twice per year to place flowers. They are buried in Mt Olivet Cemetery (Not Woodlawn).
Thanks Janice Oliver
|Tim Heath||Memorial Transfer|
Mr. Gardner; would you be so kind and transfer to me the memorial of Isabelle Jane (Heath) Thomas, # 147314781. She is a 1st cousin of my great-grandpa, John R. Heath. Thank you very much. Tim Heath # 47409263

Thank you for documenting this cemetery.
One question: where did William Campbell's middle name come from? I am a descendant and have never before seen Anderson as his middle name. His son, born 1832, was named William Anderson Campbell.
|Diana B||D. Corbitt|
Thank you for bring this to my attention. This cemetery was transferred to me and I have not been able to research all of its memorials. I will research the death year and the children.

You have corrected the GPS on the memorial, but when you click on the cemetery and then go to the map, it is still a positive coordinate.
By the way, my cousin is worried about the middle name, Anderson. Where did you get that?
Thanks, Bob Baker
thanks so much I'm in Georgia and when I visit I add a few here and there they really do not allow photos which is not proper, as long as they do not know
