GRAVE OF WALTER E. GUTHRIE - Ledgelawn Cemetery - Bar Harbor, Hancock County, Maine

Daily Tombstone Photo is vacationing this week on Mt. Desert Island, ME. So, I am posting pics this week of graves I have photographed here over the years. Anyone who has ever visited Mt. Desert Island will agree that it is certainly on the most beautiful places on Earth. Mr. Guthrie certainly had the same sentiment.

PICTURES OF BONAVENTURE CEMETERY - Savannah, GA



Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil! Bonaventure is one of those cemeteries where you can just "feel" the spirits any time you walk through it. This cemetery is one of the few where I have actually been creeped out in! All that aside, it is absolutely beautiful and the stones are some of the most unique I have seen.

TOMBSTONE OF MY GREAT-GREAT GRANDPARENTS, FRANK J. MEINTEL AND THERESA (ANTRETTER) MEINTEL - Greenlawn Cemetery, Hollidaysburg, Blair County, PA


This is the tombstone of one of my maternal Great-Grandmother's parents, Frank J. Meintel and Theresa (Antretter) Meintel. What is interesting to note about this stone is that Theresa's name is engraved as "Tresa." Turns out this was the name she used for most of her life and it was continued even onto her tombstone. I am fortunate to have 2 generations of ancestors buried in this beautiful cemetery.
