Tombstone Tuesday: A Stroke of Serendipity

 

Last month, just days before storm Alfred wreaked havoc on the trees in the area, I took some snapshots around town.  Three of them were at a small burying ground called Merriam Cemetery.  This is one of them.

 

 

Today I received a Find A Grave request for Thomas Barnes (Feb. 15, 1752 – Feb. 10, 1831) at the Merriam Cemetery.  It’s the first request I’ve seen for that cemetery in the 2+ years that I’ve lived here.   Imagine my surprise!

 

 

He found his way into two of the three photos!
