Planning for the weekend

June 29, 2010

A 3 day weekend and so many options for cemeteries to visit!  So far the plan for one day is Ripton/Lincoln and the surrounding area.  It’s amazing how many little cemeteries are up there!  One of the things I’m most looking forward to on this round is to document one of the cemeteries in Ripton that has some of my family in it, including an unmarked grave for a great-great-great…something.  I think it’s time someone documented it before there’s no one left who knows where it is.

On that note it makes me wonder how many unmarked graves are out there, particularly in the small older cemeteries that are forgotten about on the back roads.  I think it’s sad that there are those that are forgotten, or as I’ve found out in my research, entire cemeteries that have disappeared over the years.

Well there’s just over 50 cemeteries on my list for one day’s trip so I think I should narrow it down a little.
