The article discusses the author's experience on the efforts of her mother to write a book about Bingham Hill Cemetery in Colorado. She says that her mother's objective is to give honor to the seemingly unnamed people buried therein. She recalls that more than 140 people were buried at Birmingham consisting of early settlers in the place. They died of diseases such as typhoid, scarlet fever, stillbirths and whooping cough. She observes that the burials date back to the 19th century. It is still vivid in the author's memory when she held the skull of J. Thomas on her palm.
