Not Buried Here

I come across something unique in nearly every cemetery I visit. Cenotaphs (monuments erected in honor of a person buried elsewhere) exist in many graveyards. The cenotaph above was particularly interesting to me because of the wonderful genealogical clues it offers. A family historian may have stumbled upon this memorial, as I did, in Bluff City Cemetery…

An Unending Love

A monument to love stands in a shady section of Bluff City Cemetery in Elgin Illinois.   The large surname stone reads: Ours is an unending love, Higher than heights above, Deeper than depths beneath, Lasting ever, e’en in death.
