Friday the 30th of October [Halloween Eve]
Thursday night our local newspaper ran a seasonal story about a woman who loves gravestones! I immediately started a search for her and finally ended up at Face Book and asked her to be my friend. She does professional face painting and is a ghost hunter so we will have to wait to meet until after her busy season. Cool. She has some of the same local gravestones in her photo albums. Maybe I have found another person to gravestone hop with!
Saturday the 31 of October and Sunday the 1st of November
I took these two days off for family time and for doing a major grocery shopping event. Halloween came and went and we packed up the decorations and took out the small box of Thanksgiving items.
I started backing up some non-genealogy files and will continue that tomorrow and begin the backing up of genealogy stuff.
There is a cemetery in North Stonington where William Wheeler and his wife Emeline Stewart are buried. I investigated resources for a future visit using the New London County cemetery list, Find a Grave and Google Maps. I have located it, found a nearby street address (for the GPS) and have begun the process of deciding which gravestone to photograph. There are three Wheeler Cemeteries in this small town!
