Local Indian Cemeteries

On Memorial Day Paul and I took a drive to find 3 local Indian burial grounds. It made the day special for us. It also made watching the Hattfields and the McCoys on the history channel this week a bit more powerful.  All three of these cemeteries are within 20 miles or our house.

I tried grave rubbing for the first time.  I am going to add some embroidery, maybe join them together into a quilted wall hanging.  I think they would be great hanging in the entry way of our church.  The church we own on our property was erected in 1872.  It burned and then was re-erected in 1917.  

Paul said it's striking to think how really young this country is, amazing compared to England and the rest of Europe.  God save the Queen and happy Jubilee!
