Had a lovely day exploring more cemeteries on Saturday. Beautiful day. I'm lucky to have friends point me in the direction of different cemeteries and places. 

And this tree…and this fence. Oh my heart.

I thought this might be a symbol from some kind of fraternal organization. There was another one like it. It's on a women's grave though, and I couldn't find anything online. Anybody know?

  1. All of these images are so meaningful, considering the holidays this last weekend. That tree makes me want to cry (with hope).

  2. Is this Camp Creek cemetery? If not, it resembles it, with all the lichen. It’s also worth a visit, as it has old and also very new headstones.

    Also the anchor… taken at sea? Steadfastness? I can’t see the object to the left of the anchor.

  3. Most of these were from Bethel-Harris Cemetery, near Seymour. The one with the anchor was from a tiny little cemetery, Stewart Cemetery, that we came across while looking for the other cemetery.
    It looks like anchors were used as a symbol on gravestones, but this one seemed to specific, and there was another one exactly like it….just made me curious.
    I'll have to check out Camp Creek Cemetery. Thank you so much!!!

  4. Do you ever use findagrave.com? It is such an amazing resource and it’s totally free. You can search by name, year, cemetery, state, county, etc…. Take care, Susie
