We went in search of an obelisk grave marker that is said to be there and has Norse or Druidic markings on it. We did not find that particular marker on our first trip but we do plan on trying again. Next time hopefully the weather will be dry and sunny.
We did see many other markers some even had fresh flowers or flags posted at them. One that had a flag was for a Mr. Frank Victor Clausen a Washington Fireman 2 CL 1897 – 1932. Since it is Memorial Day weekend seeing the flag as this man’s grave made me smile. It’s nice to know that despite his being gone for so many years there is still someone out there that is thinking of him.
There was another grave that was a bit more disturbing than anything else. The marker just says Mother Frances E Shumway 1871 – 1928. While that in itself is not overly remarkable the fact that her grave marker was on what appeared to be freshly turned earth right next to another unmarked grave that was also freshly dug was disturbing.
While there are a few photos here on my website I invite you to see the others on my Facebook page. If my husband and I manage to find the currently elusive obelisk marker I will post images of that one as well.
