Another Day, Another Graveyard

Another Day, Another Graveyard

This graveyard is part of the Episcopal Church where my daughter was baptized. There are graves here dating back to the American War of Independence. The inscription on this large marker reads:

Sacred to the Memory

(LEFT) William Bean
Born November 11, 1786.
Died January 29, 1855.
He Sleeps in Peace

(RIGHT) Mary Weber.
Wife of William Bean.
Born November 19, 1794.
Died Mark 10, 1889.
She Rests with the Blessed.

Given the soot damage, I'm surprised it's readable at all; many other stones in that graveyard aren't.

The church still buries people there.

This is my favorite of your cemetery images so far, Brian. The large stone really makes a bold statement, and the smaller ones balance it. --Chris

Thanks, Chris. I'm finding these images to be fun. Your earlier comment about cemeteries being a good combination of both architecture and landscaping is right on the mark. The older cemeteries that are still in use (such as this one) are especially intriguing, because you can see a record of the changes in taste, language and even culture over the years. -Brian
