My six year old has developed this uncanny act of being able to spot old cemeteries off the beaten path. Of course, we must stop and go visit and read a few. Tonight on the way home from ice cream, he spotted another one that I had never noticed before.
So we stopped and went in for a look see. There were the typical markers for an old New England cemetery, some slate, some marble and granite.
I also saw some that where cast iron.
This cemetery had three. All three markers were Â“erectedÂ” in 1865.
Made by a D. French Haverhill, MA. Never seen this before and wonder if cast iron markers are common in other parts of this country?
