Upcoming Cemeteries of the Week

Yokohama001I’m closing in on 150 Cemeteries of the Week.  I still have a bunch of tourist destinations in mind, but I thought perhaps I’d open the subject up for discussion.  What would you like to see?

I’m including a poll, just to get a sense of whether these graveyards are as fascinating to you as they are to me.

If there’s something I absolutely must write about — but I’ve left it off my list — please feel free to write it in or leave a comment below.

Keep in mind that I am limited to those cemeteries that I can research, either through books or over the internet.  If I can’t find much information, I can’t write an informative post.  Also, I need to be able to find illustrations, either through photos I can borrow (with full credit, of course) or with vintage postcards or other ephemera.

The whole list of Cemeteries of the Week to date is here.

    I was going to suggest NYC Marble Cemetery but I see you have already done that one and I missed it.

    I just went back to read the post and realized that I had read it before. I was interested in it because John Lloyd Stephens is buried there but he was not mentioned in your post. When I read it the first time I had forgotten he was buried there. I would really love to see his vault! Have a good week!

      I hope you’ll forgive my ignorance, but who is John Lloyd Stephens?

      • coastalcrone says:

        Most people will not know who he is either. I should have explained. He was an American who traveled extensively in Europe and basically rediscovered the Mayan ruins in Mexico and Central America. He also wrote successful travel books about his adventures. I knew he was buried in NYC but had forgotten that it was NYC Marble Cemetery. Loren, I always learn from your posts! Now the one about NYC Marble Cemetery is very meaningful to me as I did not know much about where he was buried.. Thank you! I hope all is well with you as you stay busy.
