All of these Cemeteries have surnames which can be found in the
Wannamaker & Allied Families Gedcom. I urge anyone who is researching these
areas that you be patient and search carefully. These indexes are all
very large, a "Gold Mine" of thousands of people.
Word of caustion, that shouldn't discourage you: Many years ago when people were buried,
they couldn't afford a headstone and often used wood as their only marker.
Over time the wood disappeared by the forces of nature. So even though you believe a family member
is probably buried in a sertain cemetery, the grave is not recorded, either because the stones are so old they
can't be read or they used a simple wooden cross, which has since gone.
In the early days there was nobody to record the people buried properly.
Maybe they didn't think it important at the time or if they were recorded,
the records are lost. In any case, it is people, who in later years, cared
enough to visit Cemeteries and wrote down word for word as they passed each grave. It is a painstaking process.
Remember "to error is human". So you may find errors of spellings and etc. Those who record
these Cemeteries must be commended for their hard work, helping to keep the memory
of those who came and left before us.
As we reflect on the past, a strange sensation crosses over us;
Both pleasing and yet sad because they created a legacy;
Pleasing that the old pioneers have done their work well;
Striving forever onward;
Sad now, that they are sleeping;
Sleeping in the hollow embrace of the grave.
We pause! And as we pause we drop a tear of sorrow;
A tear mingled with faith, hope and love!
And like the Roman God Janus;
We stand looking backward and then foreward.
And then: We stretch our hands across the grave;
Between us lies the narrow sod;
We ask our ancestors how they are today,
Rejoicing in the Land of God?
At home, safe, safe in the Hands of God!
Peace..... Sweet Peace In Thier Memory.
