Tombstone Tuesday :: Rocky Springs Cemetery, Rocky Springs, Mississippi, Along The Trace

Copyright 2012, CABS for Reflections From the Fence

About milepost 54.8 you will find the Rocky Springs area, the town is no longer there, but, the Methodist Church built in 1837 is.  On my November 15, 2012 post, I shared with you a bit of Rocky Springs.  The cemetery behind the church is old, peaceful, spiritual, and on the day of our visit full of light and dark, the huge spanish moss laden trees casting deep shadows.  Rocky Springs Cemetery is well represented on the internet, at Find A Grave, and others, including, a site by James L. Berry, Graveyards and Gravestones.  For individual interments and photos of headstones, please visit both sites, or try a search with your favorite search engine.







And, with the church in the background:

I really like these photos, kind of eerie with the moss hanging from the trees.

These are amazing photos. Wow. They look like they are part of a movie.
The history just oozes from every one of them.
