Ancient Burial Ground, Essex, Massachusetts


Many of the stones in this graveyard are still quite legible and some have wonderful engravings.  Unfortunately, some of the stones have either sunk into the ground or fallen over and been damaged.  Still others are no longer readable due to hundreds of years of exposure to the elements.
