Old Cemetery

Here is a picture I took last year of a quiet little cemetery at a local church. The cemetery has been there for several generations with many of the headstones going back to the 1850’s. The stones are very weathered and with a lot of them rain and wind has smoothed away the name and date. As you can see many of the sites are starting to crumble and fall apart.

One thing that is always interesting with a cemetery of this size and age is coming across a family plot where the dates are within a few months of each other. I assume some “plague” or disease raveged the young town and they were helpless against it. It makes you wonder what things were like during that time.

Here is my little rendition of a scary little cemetery. I have several more I plan on posting.
