|Brewer lot (504 and 505) at Sleepy Hollow Cemetery.|
The rails and chains connecting the posts are disappearing.
Years from now, visitors may not be able to see that all of these stones were once in the same lot.
I tried to capture the scenes in new pictures. The sun cast deep shadows on the stones, making them even more unreadable. Most of the trees and bushes have been removed.
My grandmother has several ancestors buried at Sleepy Hollow, making this a great stop for exploring this branch of my family's history.
