I noticed I forgot to post yesterday’s Tombstone Tuesdays post – Cemeteries Can Be Interesting Places – Tombstone Tuesdays February 9, 2021. I rescheduled the post that was in that spot for the last post before this post. I apologize for the inconvenience.
I note in the post that is it not out about out of world experiences, but what I have seen people do in cemeteries. I also respect people visiting cemeteries and give them their privacy. I mentioned what I have read or heard about other cemeteries and funeral processions. It’s amazing what you can read on headstones in addition to what you find watching or reading articles.
I used to joke about finding a Wichita connection shortly after I moved here. Then one day I took a photo in a local cemetery. I didn’t recognize the name, but when I checked on a graving site, I saw her parents. Her mother was a great-grandfather’s sibling. I hadn’t tracked her children at the time, other than knowing she went to Enid, Oklahoma after leaving from Kansas. As far as I knew, only my daughter, her step-brother, her mother, and I have lived in Wichita. I know two of my great-grandfather’s siblings, including a brother, moved to Kansas. Once here, they and their children spread out around the state.
