  2. We would like to get the photographer who does this to photograph a couple of our groups. To keep the expense of travel down he has to work it into his travel itinerary.

  6. Victorian look in a Derby.

    I love this pic, the eye glass frames & magnification thru the lenses, fur collar, flaws in the tinplate, etc. Looks Victorian authentic I think.

  9. Same photographer who does the tintype photography. He travels with a trailer full of chemicals for a darkroom & developing. Some of these pics don't quite fit the tintype era because of the way they dress, but I really like the ones that do.

    I've been watching for pics & videos from the weekend but haven't seen anything yet. Only the standings have been posted. I went to Portland a few yrs ago & have pics taken in the parade & competition.

  13. Arm lost in a sawmill accident. Was burial a common practice?

  16. I don't know but I would bet in the era before community hospitals it probably was. Today it's just so much trash for the incinerator.

    Exactly. Not uncommon. Parts of William Clarke Quantrill are buried in 3 separate states.

    In ~1975 one of my good friends was involved in relocating graves from 3 small cemeteries dating back into the late 1700's & up into the 1950's, into 1 new cemetery. A large number of the deceased were his ancestors plus he was on the county historical society at the time. A few yrs after it was over I asked him what they did on older graves with no vault & no casket left. He said state laws (they differ among states) require they dig down 6 ft, take a 24" x 24" x 24" Oak box & fill it up with any remains & dirt from that level. The oak boxes were buried in the new cemetery & any markers were moved. I said to him that you could be digging past the older remains or leaving as much behind as you were recovering. He replied, "Exactly."

    When I was growing up there was a smallish neighborhood park called Founders Memorial Park a couple of miles from home. The rumor was that it had previously been a cemetery, and that when they converted it to a park they had to leave some of the bodies where they were. Several years ago someone reminded me of this, so I did a little research and it turned out the rumor was mostly true.

    Founders Memorial Park was actually two cemeteries - Mt. Olive and Broadway (formerly Clark), which held a combined total of 1,291 bodies interred between 1888 and 1957. Both cemeteries had fallen into disuse and had been declared "a public nuisance" in 1959, and it was decided to turn them into a "quiet park". Efforts were made to locate descendants, but the remains of the "unclaimed" are still there and the names of the deceased are listed on two memorials in the park.

    In my country space is limited and graves for eternity were and are considered a luxury. So burial rights can be bought for a specific period of time (with a minimum of 15 years I believe). After that period the grave is cleared, which is called "shaking the bones". The bones (embalming is forbidden over here) are collected in a bone pit and the space is available for a new burial. In smaller cemeteries (I live right next to one) graves are placed three layers on top of each other. This cemetery I live next door to doesn't offer any burial periods other than the minimum. The only exception is made for children's graves.
     
  20. It would be sad enough to outlive your child but without exception it would be devastating to live long enough to lose their grave also.
