Lol, that one tombstone, William C. Prendergast made me do a double take b/c one of my favorite books has a main character with the last name Pendergast, and I have never seen or heard of that name apart from in the book series.

Gorgeous cemetery, if one can describe a cemetery as being that.

I dont think it is morbid. I love old cemetaries and looking at the tombstones. They usually all tell a story. And such history. To me they are beautiful and peaceful.

I agree--lots of history there--many stories to be told. We visited the cemetary ~2004 or so--Savannah is such a cool place. Especially in January when it was -10 in Pittsburgh and 60's in Savannah!

I will purposely stop at cemeteries that are old, like that one. I love walking around them. We have a few near me, and I even found my great great grandma and found out my grandpa had a sister that died when she was 10 of diverticulitis. They were buried beside each other. Theres something very peaceful about cemeteries.

I LOVE wandering through old cemetaries - was surprised at this grave in an old, old cemetary in Cedar Key, FL - Big Ed must have been a special fella!

I love the St. Bonaventure Cemetery, peaceful and unlike any cemetery in Ohio. When we went to Savannah I visited with the husband who is not as "in" to it as I am. I went back then and really explored.

Big Ed-I am speechless, it truly takes all types doesn't it?

Ah, good stuff. Count me as another history lover who enjoys wandering thru an old cemetery looking at names and dates, thinking about the people and families. I grew up in North Florida and the sunlight through the spanish moss takes me right back, I can almost feel the humidity :)

nice photos :)
