Family funeral blogging

Posted under: Uncategorized

Light posting for the next week–Historiann is off to her ancestral homeland for a family funeral.  (Not tragic:  Grampa was 97, and was very ready to go.)  In the meantime, keep your families all happy and healthy, and I’ll see you soon. 

If you’re of a morbid turn of mind these days, here’s some quality late eighteenth-century gravestone blogging and photography from the St. James Reformed Cemetery in Lovettsville, Virginia, courtesy of By Neddie Jingo!

    It sounds like your grandfather had a long and, one hopes, full life. Still, condolences.

    My condolences, Historiann. I take it you are in Ohio? Things should be pretty interesting over there…..

    Historiann is from Ohio? Where? I’m from Ohio (sort of). And I don’t think I knew her there. But I’m also Canadian. So I know for sure she’s not from Canada. Because we all know each other up north.

    Even if he was ready to go, it’s still sad for you and your family. My sympathies to you.
