Chandler Day 354: An Interesting Discovery

DSC00324Along the old railroad path pictured in the last post were a few headstones. They were out in the middle of the woods not too far off the path. The woods is private property now and most of it is fenced off. Normally no one would ever see the graves as the leaves would conceal them. But since the leaves are long gone the headstones could be seen. They are a little hard to read but they listed three people:

An infant that died when it was delivered on October 23, 1836

Isabella Sedwick who died March 10, 1848 at the age of 7

and Marion Sedwick who died January 8, 1850 at the age of 15.

I have no idea who the people were, what they did, why the died or why they are buried in a woods and forgotten. But at least they are remembered here. Another note about this is that a friend of mine drove past here late one night and saw a little girl in an old dress running through the field across the road. Maybe it was Isabella.
