  • RECORDING OF A CEMETERY

    By Thelma Greene Reagan

    Today we walked where others walked
    On a lonely, windswept hill;
    Today we talked where other 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.


    Oh the cemetery where great-grandfather lays
    With many quiet sounds and early morning haze
    Many was the time I looked in awe
    Along with my daddy and maw
    At the many graves in neat long rows
    Spring was cleanup time with rakes and hoes
    Then came the white sand and flowers
    And just finishing up before the evening showers

    That was the good times of the past
    What is left of the cemetery will not last
    The mean and ugly future is closing in
    The neat old cemetery cannot win
    Now the cemetery is destroyed and sad
    I could have recorded it, I wish I had

    GRAVE DOWSING

    One of the biggest obstacles facing a genealogist is being unable to locate the burial site of an ancestor. Although we may have an idea of where this ancestor is buried, we have no proof. Grave dowsing cannot give us the name of the person buried in any un-marked grave, but it can identify the locations of unmarked graves within a cemetery or lot. You may find that the dowsing rods respond differently for you Than someone else, which is why it is extremely important that you practice and develop your own technique.

    MAKING DOWSING RODS
    There are several ways to make dowsing rods, but I have only used one of these methods, that is the method that I will recommend.

    First, you can start with 2 metal coat hangers. Cut them at the neck just before the point where they join to form the hook of the hanger.
    Second, straighten each hanger.
    Third, once the hangers are straight, make a 90-degree bend for the handles.  The handles can be 3 to 5 inches long depending size of hand.

    Other material: You can make them out of copper rod, heavy copper wire small copper tubing.

    Handles: You can make a sleeve for the handles. This will give free wheeling to the rods. Hands will not restrict movement. Use a copper line a little larger than the coat hanger or other rod. Extend the hanger a little below the bottom of the sleeve, then slightly bend the end enough so the rod will not come out of the sleeve. Another sleeve material is a car brake line.

    DOWSING
    Hold the rods lightly in your hands, with elbows at your waist and arms parallel to the ground. The rods should be held straight out, parallel to the ground and parallel with each other. Do not hold your thumbs over the bend of the handle, this will restrict movement. Let them turn loosely in your hands.

    Walk very slowly onto the suspected area, the rods will cross in front of you when you are over the grave. Once you leave the grave the rods will uncross.

    Practice makes perfect.
