At Rest

I’m always on the lookout for old cemeteries and graveyards. Why? I don’t know…maybe it’s that I like to look at the dates people lived and died…and to see names which may have some significance to me. I found a very old, poorly maintained cemetery in Madison, NC the other day and stopped to check out some of the markers. This one had engraved, “Nannie Martin Joyce, Jan 18, 1847-Jan 1 1915. At Rest.” 68 when she died. I liked her name…Nannie Martin. I bet she was a nice person.
