Augusta Cemetery, Augusta, Carroll County, Ohio
(Written in 1995)
When Bette sent the three cemetery books to me she had a note thereon something
of this nature: "Now let's get into this..." I didn't know, for certain,
whether she was telling me that I should die and get into the cemetery as I had
lived too long as it was or whether she was telling me that I should go through
the names and write something about each.
Since I think it is best for me to write, instead of using my space in Augusta
Cemetery, here are brief statements, as I remember, or think I remember, the
people whom I know and are now residents of Augusta Cemetery. The
statements have not been checked - they are only what I recall of the different

In closing these remarks my fingers are becoming clumsy and
ineffective in finding the right keys on this computer. I strike a "d" for
a "c" time and again. And it is all because I have lived too long and remember
too many people who now lie in the Augusta Cemetery.
While it was nice to recall something about so many friends who are no more, you
should be reminded that this account was written rapidly, entirely from memory,
which at times is extremely faulty. I hope you understand this as you
read, if you do read, these remarks.
It is wonderful to remember so many good people.
