Aged 37 years, 8 months, & 27 days.

Suger Creek Cemetery Moberly, MO.

Mary died on September 10th, 1870. She was the wife of William Culp and had "Aged 37 years, 8 months, & 27 days". Having passed away almost 140 years ago I wonder if Mary's family still tend to the grave or does any family still survive?

It seems that when I visit cemetery's be it to lay a loved one to rest or to walk among the departed and look for photographs the weather is rather gray and ominous. Last Sunday was no different. A cold wind was blowing, and a very dark sky was following it.

I believe that infrared photography is quite suited for the cemetery, it help set the mood. You will most likely see more IR cemetery's in the future.
