I've been away for a while, and the Frost is gone.... #cemetaries #pioneercemetery #tombstone #tomestones #graveyardgirl #graveyard

On our road trip last weekend, Alexia and I were driving through Cedar City and saw a cemetery so we had to stop. I LOVE old cemeteries and Lexi has followed in that interest. It was amazing. I took so many pictures. I just find it fascinating. People that lived so long ago and what happened to them. So many children. As a mom who has buried 2 babies, I know how heartbreaking it must have been. Reading their gravestones makes me feel like they're not forgotten. Their lives... the happiness, the love, the sorrow, and the sacrifice. Alexia said the fact that many were pioneers made the cemetery even more impactful for her. The dedication they had for their religion and beliefs to sacrifice so much. I wish I could have spent more time at the cemetery learning about the people buried there. I wish I had room to post more of the pics of their headstones. This cemetery was interesting because some of the headstones look new or repaired and others have been left to crumble. Some are just slabs in the ground with no inscription. Most likely, whatever the family could afford at the time. I'm wondering if ancestors have replaced/repaired headstones or if they were just high quality from so long ago. Or maybe some committee has helped with restoration as some gravestones have an official pioneer plaque on them. I would love to learn more!

Children's graves are my kryptonite. I have cried over more of them than I can count. Here are a few children buried in #CrownPointCemetery, in #CascadeIdaho. (Inscriptions in the comments below) 😢💔 #HistoricGraveyard #PioneerCemetery

My first wooden headstone. 1877. The boy was 3 years old. #project_necropolis #cemetery #graveyard #pioneercemetery #earthday2018
