Tombstone Tuesday ~ More from Watt Cemetery

[William Sisler born Jan 31, 1832 died June 19, 1888]

This is not one of my relatives, it's another stone in Watt Cemetery which I am (slowly) mapping. Since my first post about the cemetery, I've learned just a little bit more. One day when I was there, a lady walking her dogs stopped to talk to me. She asked if I was a relative of the people buried there. I told her no, that I was just taking pictures. She told me that until recently the family used to come out every year to clean up the cemetery. [The cemetery is now in a subdivision and this lady lives next to it.] She said they used to have a lot of people there working - almost like a reunion! She didn't know why they stopped coming out, but they haven't been there for several years.

If we would get some nicer weather, I'd like to go back and get the rest of the pictures.
