We have Old Erie Cemetery right in downtown Cleveland...some of the headstones date back to the 1700s.  One fella fought in the Revolutionary War, the French and Indian War, the War of 1812, and some other things, only to die of cholera right in his own home!

That's why I love old cemetaries.... it's the stories that you get from reading the old headstones......
I love personal histories...guess that's why I love doing Geneology too!

Baton Rouge has Magnolia Cemetery. The Civil War Battle of Baton Rouge, 1862, was fought among the headstones and mausoleums. I have pictures of the cemetery in my collection of photos.

I lived in St. Augustine as a teenager and we used to go to ALL the cemetaries, it was a great place to hide from police and parents, ha!( all teens did that right ?) including the Tolomato Cemetery which was founded in 1565 and dubbed the oldest cemetery in Florida.
