Prospect Hill Cemetery

This twin headstone just takes the cake!!!

"Bathing in the river near this spot on the second of July, AD MDCCXCVII were drowned: aged seventeen years, Pardon Taylor... and Edward Palmer... the former lost his own life through his generous efforts to preserve that of his youthful friend. They were lovely and pleasant in their lives and in their death were not divided. Reader, if you knew them you will weep with their friends."

"Room for one more, honey!"

Brattleboro, VT. Maybe the prettiest li'l boneyard I ever did see! Terraced, if you take a little wending footpath through the trees, you'll a find a few side "wings" containing additional headstones.
