    I love going to cemeteries and yours looks like a great place to explore.

    My great grandmother took some of her girls to New York back in 1911, intending to sail to Switzerland to visit family, but one of the girls, Vivien fell ill and died. She is buried in New York. It bothers me that she is the only one of her family buried there when everyone else is buried in Florida. Great grandmother's sister is also buried in the same cemetery, but I don't know if she's next to Vivien.

      to be far from everyone else. We had a couple of children who died young like Adam, no idea where they were, then I learned they're all with their parents in the family plot in Brooklyn. That wasn't bought until some years later, so the first seven of 19 people were reburied there when the plot was purchased. No idea where they were before that.
