So one of the days we were in New England we drove to a couple small towns in Massachusetts to do some cemetery sleuthing. We started at the grand old Taunton Library.
We even paid a visit to the Registry of Deeds to do some research, which was right next to the beautiful Taunton Courthouse.
The Taunton Cemetery was on a beautiful knoll, with graves so long forgotten. We discovered several ancestors grave sites here. Standing there on the land, we breathed in the air, took it all in, and tried to envision the area as our loved ones must have seen it, hundreds of years ago.
Quite a thing to ponder....
