Pat and I stumbled upon an old graveyard this morning on our way to get breakfast. We decided to get out our cameras and do a little exploring! It's one of the oldest cemeteries in Central Ohio.
In 1931 a 26 foot tall obelisk was erected telling the history of this cemetery.
I enjoyed the use of "consort" on this gravestone. My Dad told me it was just another word for "wife". I was thinking she was his mistress. So Dad totally rained on my parade!
Graveyards creep me out a little bit. I don't like the idea of walking over the dead. Hhmmm...another reason I want to be cremated!
Lovely little poem I found on one of the crumbling gravestones and on this sign as well.
Some men from the Revolutionary War were buried here.
Um...wife? At age 11? Hello dirty old man!
Inscription found on the obelisk.
The original stone is lying on the ground and practically indecipherable.
What did you do with your Sunday?
