Greetings! I’m so glad you decided to stop and visit. This blog was started in response to an invitation by Terry Thornton, Founder of The Association of Graveyard Rabbits.
“The Association promotes only the historical importance of cemeteries, grave markers, and the family history to be learned from a study of burial customs, burying grounds, and tombstones. Members of the group all promote the study of cemeteries, the preservation of cemeteries, and the transcription of genealogical / historical information written in cemeteries.”
Why Graveyard Rabbits, you ask? That was the brainchild of Terry and was taken from a poem by Frank Lebby Stanton., the American poet from the
He halfway gallops among the graves---
A tiny ghost in the gloom and gleam,
Content to dwell where the dead men dream,” that is the Graveyard Rabbit.
My emphasis may change, but the focus will not. The Association of Graveyard Rabbits has been given the charge to publish a dedicated blog to graveyard study.
