Cemeteries are usually thought of as sacred resting places for our friends and loved ones -- quiet places, where tears and emotions have choked us -- yet places we like to return to with flowers, seeking still moments to meditate.


Cemeteries are also one of the best places for "diggin' up bones" or stories of the past. Every headstone -- every grave -- has a story. Many of the people's stories are on the pages of local history books, but many are not. Many who have passed on are already forgotten -- their stories never to be told. Sad.


Whether good or bad, they have a right to be remembered because they are someone's child, someone's brother or sister, or someone's grandmother or grandfather. And someday, someone will be looking for their grave, trying to find their story.


This is our attempt to share some of that forgotten history and those stories.
