Two weeks ago

Two weeks ago when the sun used to shine and it didn't rain morning, noon, and night I drove out to meet a friend at the stables where she was going to work with yearling horses. I was a little early for our meeting so I drove down the road away from the stables to explore. I found this old section of a cemetery that had stones dating as far back as 1877 and beyond. There were many headstones marking the graves of young children aged 5 months, or a few years. I found many headstones with my name on them- a popular name in the 18th 19th centuries it would seem.

"In memory of.. William"
"Gone Home... Harriet"
not my name.

This stone marks a young child's grave. Dated 1877.

May they all rest in peace.
