Tombstone Tuesday

On to another Tombstone Tuesday, a challenge put out there by Geneabloggers at http://www.geneabloggers.com/ where they always offer fun and interesting daily blogging prompts. I jumped on board this train two weeks ago but couldn't follow through last week because of internet problems, which I won't bore you with:)

Again this week I'm back at the Cherry Orchard Cemetery in lovely and almost gone, Magnolia West Virginia, only accessible by dirt roads in pretty rough condition. It is on Find A Grave at http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=77996&CScn=cherry+orchard&CScntry=4&CSst=52&
But as you can see, there are only four folks listed.

Mom went to Cherry Orchard Cemetery a number of years ago when she talked Dad into taking here there, and I really don't know how she pulled off that trick! On my last trip to see Mom she navigated us there while brother heroically drove. But for this Tombstone Tuesday, I'm working with Mom's old photos of the stones taken a number of years ago.
