Matt offered to take us on a tour of one of the local cemeteries after I told him how much I enjoy wandering through them. We started with a picnic.
I really need to do a better job of taking photos of friends that aren't sitting directly across from me but I'm sometimes a little embarrassed about it.
Our first stop was to check out Evelyn Davis who believed in eternal life or is a vampire. I haven't conducted any research on her but she sounds incredible. You can read more about her below.
The wife above was a descendant of Alexander Graham Bell.
There were some gorgeous statues throughout the cemetery. And an interesting one below. I found out later that Paul was a Democratic political strategist and died just before Clinton was elected in the election he was working on. It's a very bittersweet memorial after I learned his story.
I found out that Alice Roosevelt Longworth was buried here and my friends made it their mission to find it. I love my friends for their efforts. I also love Alice and find her intriguing and witty.
I know it can be considered odd to want to explore cemeteries. I think I picked it up from my Dad who loved history. There is so much history on how a civilization buried their loved ones and national heroes. I'm excited for my next trip to New York when I'm hoping to walk through a famous cemetery in the Bronx.
