Corrected by myself

Although the research that I've done insist over and over that the stone individual markers started in the 18th century, I have a photo here of one from Plymouth Massachusetts that says the 17th century. History tells us that there are older graves in this particular cemetery. However, this is the oldest known stone here.

Burial Hill, as it's known in Plymouth was an active cemetery from the
1620's until 1957.
For those that believe in ghost, it is said that each night around dusk a woman in a flowing dress can be seen at the top of these steps leading into the burial grounds. She is supposedly looking for her man
that was lost at sea.

Thanks for this Stew. I din't believe in ghosts but a good story nonetheless.

Yup, believe in ghosts and always have. Have actually seen a few.
Are you going to sit and see if you can see the lady at the top of the steps one of these evenings? And if you do, we will want to know what your see!

I was there one spooky evenings when one of those tropical depresions was going through. It was about 50 degrees and the rain was coming down sideways. All my pictures show something. But having a strong photo backround, I have to say that it's most likely just the flash reflecting off the rain drops.
