Hidden lives

January 5, 2010

The old, overgrown cemeteries tucked away in corners of Charleston, SC are a treasure trove of history. Some of the stones date back to the 17th century with vines and flowers crawling along and among them for decades. Or longer. The people whose lives they mark never considered that 21st century tourists would be strolling through their graves, looking for hints about life back then.

It’s interesting to walk through and read the stones, wondering about the people. And once in a while, you find a hidden sentiment, like the inscription we found on the gravestone of a married couple (above).

A peaceful place.
