I dunno. They look kind of old. Maybe that's where they wanted to be?

mmm maybe ? there was only one grave stone in the whole yard that was free standing ? i know you can only see 3-4 stones in this image but the line was long and some of the stones as always were perished . the shot was taken from a church yard that i posted earlier. you can clearly see the one free standing stone from the left corner of the church tower

The right gravestone for the Horner family is interesting. Son and daughter named after the parents and both died at an early age (24, 25) in 1875. It tells of some plague that went through the neighborhood or there was a terrible horse buggy collision. Its a good shot but on my monitor looks too yellow.

interesting. it does appear that someone got tired of mowing around the stones or something and just moved them out of the way doesnt it?

that Horner family tombstone is interesting. i can see that forster horner died in 1875, but i cannot make out the year for mary's death, i can see it was January 12 and she was 25. and i can see that she was the daughter of forster and mary. hmm...

That is one heck of a good shot. I love the color harmony. I don't think I like the fact that the gravestones have been moved...just doesn't seem right. I may seem morbid but I absolutely love old graveyards. The artwork put into those gravestones is impeccable considering the era in which they were made.
