Learn About Graveyards

 
After going on a field trip with my son and daughter near Halloween time to learn about Graveyards, I found it so interesting I wanted to share what I learned.  It is something I never even thought twice about and frankly I didn't want to either, until their teacher convinced me to join them, and promised it would be interesting...so I tagged along.  I was supposed to be making sure the kids were quiet and behaving, but I soon found myself intrigued by what I was learning.

First if you ever want to go and visit or study a grave yard, you must be respectful of the place. Get permission first. Leave it just as you found it.  Take nothing from it and move nothing in it. After all, you are treading on sacred grounds.

About Gravestones:

Gravestones are made from Granite, Marble, Sandstone, and Slate. Today gravestones are mainly made from granite which can withstand much natural abuse. Granite gravestones can be seen in many beautiful colors, sizes, shapes, and sketches drawn right in them. However, older gravestones did not hold up as well with natural abuse like, weather, acid rain, lawn work, weed-whackers, and vandals. Many gravestones from the past are worn down almost to the point of not being able to read.

Every gravestone tells a story. Most families can only trace back to their great-great grandparents.

Things you may find out about the person from their gravestone:

Their birth date
The day they died
If they were a brother, sister, mother, father, etc...
Sometimes a gravestone will state how they died
Their social status
Some might have special markers indicating a group or membership like the branch in the military they served, or what war they were in, or even what organization they belonged to, like the masons, or others.
What religion they are
 

Interesting things you can learn about in a grave yard:

Most families are buried together or near each other.
If you see many graves which have the same date of death, and were buried near each other, perhaps there was a fire, or an illness that effected many people.
In the past daughters, even if they were married, were buried with their mother, not their husband.
