Thankful Thursday



Thankful this Thursday for preservation.  This aging fence protects a small cemetery that contains grave markers from the mid 1800's up to the early 1900's.  While it isn't that easy to access, it does receive some attention that has preserved it through the years.  

"There's no reason to be the richest man in the cemetery.  You can't do any business from there."

  9. Wow...great photo of these great old grave markers. I love exploring old cemeteries and it breaks my heart when vandals enter and desecrate someone's final resting place. That's a great old fence too.

  15. I have always enjoyed going through old cemeteries and wonder who this or that person was, and what they did in life.

  16. Too often cemeteries are vandalized and so a fence goes up to protect our loved ones. It appears that time is the only 'vandal' in that cemetery. A thoughtful post.

  29. I love old cemeteries like this. I participate in an online cemetery of sorts that helps preserve who is buried where and gives families who live far away a little way to honor their dead and research their families. It is at findagrave.com. To participate, one takes photos of graves and enters them online to the site ordered by the cemetery and city along with the info found on the grave. In return I can get photos and info on my loved ones across the world. It is quite a project and very cool.
