Woodlawn Cemetery, Bronx New York

I went to Woodlawn for the first time last Saturday, it was absolutely amazing. With 400 acres of land, including a waterfall, I haven't even begun to touch on all of the hidden treasures in this place. 
I visited some relatives, some of whom I never had the chance of meeting,  and stayed for close to 3 hrs just strolling down the pathways, taking pictures. 

Here are a some for your viewing pleasure:


As I was leaving, I stumbled onto Miles Davis' plot. which I was a bit disappointed by... guess I expected something more.

But what I was really impressed by was Woolworth's Mausoleum. The artwork was stunning. And the subject, surprising: ;)

Can't wait to go back & explore some more!!!

Ann Putnam RIP
Here's a picture I took of the Putnam Family Cemetery in September while on a trip to Essex County, MA. I was there for the annual meeting of a genealogical society I belong to. Since I was in the neighborhood I decided to visit some of the haunts and burial places of my long dead relatives. I'll be posting more from this trip as I get them organized but I thought this image was appropriate for Halloween.

Ann Putnam RIP

I couldn't find her grave but Ann Putnam is buried somewhere in there. According to the "relationship calculator" in my genealogical program she is my 2nd cousin eight times removed. As one "afflicted" by witchcraft in 1692 she was the principal accuser of my 8th great grandmother Rebecca Nurse. She stood up in front of her congregation in 1706 and formally apologized.

I am brand new to this community, and will probably not update much.  I have always loved cemetaries.  I always feel very peacefull when I am in one.  

The first cemetary visit I remember:  I went with my Gram, I do not know who we were "visiting", my grampa was still alive.  Maybe one of her children, as a couple died as infant.  Anyway, there was a small headstone that was a baby lamb carved in marble. It was so beautiful, and I was very curious about it. Gram told me that a little girl was buried there.  She had fallen from a wagon and died.  I didn't understand it, because she was a little girl, and children were not supposed to die.  

A few years later my Father moved my family to the United States.  I lived there for several years, and recently returned home to NZ.  One of the first things I did was visit that cemetary (I have a lot of family there), and of course I had to visited the little baby lamb that lay over the little girl.  It is still beautiful.
