How this post happened. Late last night I was reading a journal article for a class and there was mention of a cemetery in my county which had fallen victim to looting of Native American graves, so I called my sister to ask her about it. She runs a county Genealogy page and spends alot of time documenting cemeteries and obituaries. So I ran across a cemetery near where I live and my husband lived near it as a child, so he took me out to it. It is an old abandoned cemetery pretty much.
A hundred years ago this was a well maintained cemetery, I imagine. A hundred and ten years ago people were being laid to rest here. Many of the graves date from the 1890s and first decade of the 1900s. They are forgotten, they may be your ancestors.
I tripped while walking over to try to get a photo of the engraving. After I read that it was a 17 year old who was put to rest in this spot, I imagined I may have been tripped. It must be nice to get visitors when you've been abandoned. Even if the spirits are not here, I would think the idea that occasionally some stranger wonders through and utters your name, which has not passed anyones lips in many decades is a nice idea.
This is a better view of this grave. Cemeteries such as this aren't "spooky" or "Scary" to me, they do make me wish they were cared for, because as a human being the idea of abandoned loved ones is sad.
