  3. Somber pictures this week. We don't really have such cemeteries around due to land limitations and restrictions. Most of the dead are now placed in niches.

  17. I used to spend a lot of time on cemeteries and churchyards when I did family history research. I find them wonderfully calm places and love to speculate on the lives the people who rest there once led. The tree growing around the gravestone is a beautiful reminder of the passing of time. Am I right in reading that LS Day was born in London? I wonder if they found a better life before their untimely death so young?

  21. I use to live in Charleston, SC back in the 1970's. My wife at the time and I use to go camping and visit old cemeteries. How mother nature reclaimed some of them is amazing.
