The graves in this cemetery seemed kind of haphazard and disorganized, which I thought made them even more interesting.
Paul and I were curious about the meaning of the cross with the crown around it. We saw this on several of the graves.
The cemetery overlooks the Potomac River. A gorgeous resting spot.
You can tell that there isn't much rhyme or reason to where the graves are found.
Many of these older graves were tilted and leaning.
I was curious as to why these three tombstones were just outside the fence. Why weren't they buried with the others on the inside?
At the far back edge of the cemetery, far from all the other gravestones, I found this old pair. I imagined it was a husband, still leaning on his wife, after all these years.
What do you think of old cemeteries, reader? Do you wander around and imagine what life was like for the people buried there too?
