Day Trip'n with Lady Jan #2

Here we are at Pea Ridge Cemetery,

that is located right across the road from the stone fence that was next to the road.

This Cemetery is a pioneer cemetery, and buried here are some of the first people that settled this area (not counting the native Americans of course).

These first three tomb stones are from the Orme family.Posted by Picasa

This one you can hardly read anymore it is so badly warn, and it shows the importance of choosing the right head stone. So let that be a lesson to you people out there--if you die choose carefully your head stone material.

This nice white marble has really weathered the test of time.Posted by Picasa

This one is interesting, it has not only the date and time and name of the decedent, but it has a warning too.

Remember man (man?) while passing where you are now so once was I.

And where I am now soon you will be.

Dispare of death and follow on. Posted by Picasa

It wasn't all death and despair, there were wild flowers too!

Yellow ones.

Purple ones.

Did I say purple already?

And of course the white ones that grace the meadows eariler.Posted by Picasa
