Old Burial Hill - Plymouth, MA

Old Burial Hill in Plymouth is a remarkable cemetery.
 Many pilgrims laid to rest there.
Overlooking the harbor, I can think if no better place to be buried, the view was amazing.

Love this skull. Very unique.

William Bradford, Plymouth Colony Governor.
Fresh flowers had been laid at his grave.

The family is growing tired of my old cemetery curiosity!

Duxbury, MA

While visiting my sister in Duxbury, MA this week, I had to visit the Myles Standish Burial Ground, oldest maintained cemetery in the US! It was an amazing little graveyard.

Yes, I make my poor family go to old cemeteries.
This skull is pretty though, looks like a heart for a mouth.
Abigail Alden was the wife of Capt John Alden who was accused of being a witch in Salem and escaped to Duxbury.

Myles Standish is buried in a plot surrounded by the cannons.
His gravestone is very bland and fairly new. 

John Alden, said to be the first person to set foot on Plymouth Rock!

CRAZY hair on this figure.

Some more wild hair!
