CEMETERIES ( I HAVE VISITED )


My interest in cemeteries goes way back, probably to the first one I remember going to as a teen. It was at my Great-uncle Theo McCall’s funeral in Plant City Florida. I knew then, this would be of interest to me when I saw the headstones of family I never knew.

Listings by state and county of cemeteries I have happened upon and purposely sought. Some yielded information and photos, others, I could not locate, but, tried, even if in vain. It is always an adventure.
“Nothing ventured, nothing gained”
