Bio and Links
Bio Photo After a few months of lurking on the site I decided to try to fill some photo requests for my town Colonial era cemetery March 2013. Tough to find with no plot. In the oldest part of the cemetery I found 2 rows of gothic brownstones around 2-3:00 pm and decided to photograph all of them. The thing is, the stones are facing north on a small hill, background is a field, a lot of the stones a small size. Had a lot of backlite glare. Tried earlier 11-12:00, face in shadow, glare in background. I had a large piece of cardboard and tried putting it behind the stone to stop the glare. It worked ok, but try getting the cardboard to stay in a slight wind. Finally one morning I couldn't sleep and managed to get out to the cemetery around 8 am and voila, the sun hits the face of the stone and all is revealed. I had to get there way before 9 am! I finished photographing the 120 stones and by then I might as well do the whole cemetery. Jan 2014 I printed out the Hale Cemetery Inscriptions and added the names I missed. I finished photographing those stones or getting area pics if the stone was no longer there May 2014.

So the Old Cemetery in East Haven Conn is photographed. See my virtual cemetery of photographic challenges that need a big mirror and a few names I could not find if you want to try your hand at it.

Thanks for the picture of the Oliver Smith died 1815 in Connecticut. I was hoping this stone still existed.

RE: St Lawrence Cem
Wow, it really is quite overgrown! I guess that they did not spring for perpetual care!

Thank you SO much for your upright photo of this stone and for your hard work in difficult to read cemeteries, especially those in East Haven.
I have been working on a local cemetery for a couple of years (over 8,000 burials) and have an idea of what you have been through.
Thanks again!

Thank you for these photos and captions. I know it is always a long shot when requesting a photo from pre-1700 and really appreciate your efforts.
