Especially this time of year and in the spring.
I checked out the flags. Those men were in the GAR.

Here lies Less More.
Shot by a slug from a Forty-four.
No less,no More.

Sorry I just couldn't help myself. :-)

Nice photo. It looks just like the old cemetery that borders the field on the east end of my property. Lots of old maples that are beautifful this time of year, with my field and my colorful woods in the background.
It's an old comunity cemetery with very few recent burials. We all take turns mowing it and keeping it looking good.
Two Revolutionary war veterans are there (both died natural deaths) and two Civil war veterans are there too. One died a natural death and one died in a hospital in Washington, DC from battle wounds.
To make it more interesting, many of the people who are on my deed/abstract are there too.
I enjoy hogging my field next ot this cmetery. In fact, we call it the "Cemetery Field."

Thanks reading. I am looking for the grave of Capt Charles McAnally of the 69th Penn Inf. and an M.O.H. veteran. He was badly wounded in the war and as far as we know is buried in the Washington area. His relatives here in Ireland trying to find his grave.Any snippit of information would be greatly appreciated.Many thanks = Michael Higgins

One of the things my wife and I like to do is visit battlefield cemeteries. We've been to many, such as Gettysburg, Cold Harbor, Fredericksburg, Arlington and the Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond (a very wonderful place to visit...we've been there twice).
The neatest one we saw was at Lexington, VA at the little cemetery where Stonewall Jackson was originally buried. Maybe you've seen that picture of the little fenced in grave site with all the women mourners around Jackson's grave. We were there in the spring when the dogwoods and redbuds were blossoming. It could not have been more perfect a setting.

A woman and her little girl were visiting the grave of the little girl's grandmother. On their way through the cemetery back to the car, the little girl asked, "Mommy, do they ever bury two people in the same grave?"

"Of course not, dear." replied the mother, "Why would you think that?"

"The tombstone back there said 'Here lies a lawyer and an honest man."

He stepped on the gas instead of the brake

Stop and see as you pass by
As you are now so once was I
As I am now so you must be
Prepare for death and follow me

You shore have some pretty trees

I too have always enjoyed graveyards, looking at the headstones, the the dates and names, if only each one could tell the story of their lives how intersting it would be.

I've had people tell me I'm morbid because I love cemetaries, so I'm glad to know there are others. When I was small, I loved Decoration Day, when the whole family went to the grave yard and put flowers on relatives' graves. I remember my mom fussing at me when I stepped on someone's grave!

I like reading all the old epitaths on the stones. What I hate is so many of the older abandoned cemeteries are getting run down, and being vandalized.

Wow wonderful picture. Reminds me of back when I was young, I used to mow a graveyard. I love how peaceful they are. Only thing I am superstitous about is politicions, but every once in a while I would turn my head and I coulda swore I saw somthing move.

My uncle's hayfield was along ways from the place but right next to the township cemetary, so every so often he'd tie up the team, take his lunchpail, go under the big tree there and "have lunch with the boys".

We saw some interesting 200-yr-old headstone engravings at the Bowen Basin cemetary in Vic, Australia once. There was a real fancy headstone for this Father so&so, beside an almost as fancy one for this gal, "Consort of Father so&so." Some marched to different drummers even in those days :)
