Two graveshelters in Agee Cemetery, Hasty, Arkansas ~ Graves of two young Agee children from early 1900's. Their grandfather, William N. Christian, built two little houses over the graves to protect them. He kept a split bottom chair inside the largest house. Every day he would walk the two miles up the hill to the cemetery, take out his chair, sit and whittle to "be with the babies" until evening. The old photo of the Agee family taken c.1915-16 is posted inside the gravehouse.

I love how gravestones age. There's something peaceful, yet eery, about cemeteries.

Bragg Monument by Professor Nicholas Massa, Spring Grove Cemetery, Cincinnati, OH

Ensign Nathan Piccirilli died Dec 7 1944 in the Phillipines The Outcast is a powerfully evocative sculpture of a young man clutching himself in intense grief. It goes by many names: The Outcast, The Pariah and The Friendless Immigrant. It was sculpted by his uncle Attilo Piccirilli who sculpted many others in Woodlawn Cemetery.

Maybe this was once common and I've too little experience to know it, but a chance find in a very, very rural cemetery seems very touching. Apparently not only did the elderly woman die in bed, but her tombstone shows the scene. The town of Ridgeview, for which this was the cemetery, disappeared around 1910.
