Thurs. the 29th
I love Thursdays! I plan to watch one my my favorite shows via Comcast's On Demand while I eat lunch. What is it, you ask? Ghost Hunters on SyFy. It only takes about 40 minutes to watch a 60 minute show!
Late yesterday afternoon, I made a "working" grid using a Word table for recording the photo number, the names on the stone, and the date range. I think this will be useful in organizing all of the photos I have taken of gravestones and cemeteries so far. With that done, I made supper and read more of Her Fearful Symmetry.
This morning, I got caught up on my blog reading. Great week for reading about cemeteries and gravestones. I spied a post about Elizabeth, NJ's gravestone restoration project and remembering seeing this cemetery on a recent edition of Ghost Hunters.
I entered a "contest" to win a copy of Her Fearful Symmetry via their Face Book Fan page since it was part of my Tombstone Tuesday post this week. I also added a book review to my post from the New York Times. It's a great read for this spooky week.
The remainder of the work day was spent uploading and researching gravestones from the Benjamin Burrows Cemetery and the Lower Mystic Cemetery. I discovered with the help of the Gallup genealogy that Franklin Gallup married two sisters Hannah and Sarah Burrows. Guess he was happy with the first so he stuck with the same family! I am so glad I have no sisters.
