Had an opportunity to visit the Jerome cemetery in Jerome Arizona late last year,
out of 60+ graves I found less than 10 that had any information, this one was not one of them.
Many of these graves were well over a century old, I wonder what happened to all the head stones, surely if one was to erect such wrought iron fencing to protect the grave site, a head stone would be included.
There appeared to be evidence of damage and outright vandalism to some of these resting places, this is very sad and disheartening to know that there are human beings out there who will desecrate the grave of one who had passed on.
As is my custom, I said a prayer for all the souls at rest and asked for the perpetrators forgiveness for what they had done.

Let us not forget those who have passed on, regardless of who they were, how they died or what they had done, hard to do when there is no information..

Many of the inhabitants of the cemeteries in the area had died from disease, fights or mining accidents, they were hard times indeed..

    Nice shot. Looks very forlorn. Very sad that the graves were in such poor shape.

    A very desolate looking gravesite. I agree.....how sad that people can be so heartless!!
