Taken in Alexandria, New Hampshire. This is a very small, and quite old, cemetery. I think the most recent death was in the early 80's, but the vast majority are from over a hundred years ago. A good number of these have flags next to them, along with a medallion signifying that the deceased was a veteran, many from the civil war. Others are of people who were alive for the revolution. The one here closest to where I was standing, is of Ira Crawford, 1860, at the age of 64. His family name is on the gate as you enter,

It's an interesting place; to think that this plot of land has remained unchanged over these decades, except for the wear on the stones and the occasion repair done damage. Weather alone will have a slow affect on them, though the bigger threat would come from trees and vegetation. So it's an example of select maintenance, allowing some things to wear down while protecting from other encroaching elements.
