This weekend, I visited Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, in New York. Adjacent to Sleepy Hollow is the old Dutch Reformed Church and Graveyard. Here, aged stones, worn thin with time, bear the names of Revolutionary era church members.
One old grave, from the 1800’s bore more than just a name. There was a bone lying across it. I have seen old bones in the old monastery ruins of Ireland, just lying on the ground. Human bones. Identifiable leg bones…not fragments.
I would never disturb them.
I didn’t disturb this one either. It didn’t look old; but it didn’t look like an animal bone either.
What do you think.
Ironically, I sorted through these photos yesterday, September 9th……
Look at Rachel’s gravestone.
She died on September 9, 1783. I apologize for the blurriness of the photos; my camera settings went haywire when I tried to photograph the bone……
