Snow Covered Grave

 Mystic, CT  2015

There are many small cemeteries scattered around Connecticut, and the rest of New England for that matter.  Often the plots are small and contain perhaps a dozen or so headstones, dating from the 1700's and 1800's.  Most are family plots and at one time were probably part of the family homestead.    Some are well taken care of while others are slowly returning to nature.  I could not get close enough to this particular headstone  to make out the inscriptions, but I figure it dates from the late 1700's.  I know that this particular cemetery is where a number of early settlers of Mystic are buried.

  1. I visited Boston years ago, and one of the things I thought was interesting was all the small cemeteries with very old gravestones. Such history!
