WHAT THE........?????????? ANOTHER FRIDAY THE 13TH?
What better day than to post about another creepy graveyard? We visited this one on Wednesday. The Doctor has been finding places near by to visit. This graveyard is about an hour east of town, out in the middle of nowhere. It's called Mud Creek Primitive Church Cemetery. Sometimes around here "primitive" means "snake handlers" (that's a whole other post)
I don't think I've ever seen a metal marker before. Hmm, wonder what happened to Helen? I know someone named Brogdon, wonder if he's related?
There are about 273 interments here according to a find grave. There seemed to be a strangely large number of infant and children's graves, which was freaking me out.
This is not snow, but white sand. I just realized that this looks b&w, but it is in color. Lived for a day.
I've seen a photo on-line of this marker, before the top cross was worn away. Wooden marker, no name = sadness. Who was this person?
See, what I mean? More children, some of these just said "infant last name" Poor things, didn't live long enough to be named. The white building in the background is the church.

To counter all that gloom, here's some Spring Time
