I hope that all of you my wonderful blog readers out there don't get too tired of all the history and genealogy that I've been posting lately.
This is again from our recent trip to the east coast...
Old Burying Ground of 1st Presbyterian Church in Southold, NY.
(click on any photo to enlarge)
This church was organized in 1640 and the burial grounds are kept in nice condition
This is a monument to the founders of Southold, NY and Mr AVO's 10th great grandfather, Philemon Dickerson and his son, Peter and grandson, Thomas are all named on the monument...
They are all my hubby's direct ancestors
Philemon Dickerson arrived in this country in 1637 aboard the ship "Mary Anne"
There are headstones here for 9 of hubby's ancestors.
I was really taken with this beautiful little church
A few different views on the burial ground
This is the area where the oldest stones are located
and close to the monument
When we made this trip we didn't realize the length of Long Island, NY....120 miles
This Church and burial grounds are almost to the tip of the island.
Thanks for stopping by today for Mosaic Monday and please don't forget to pop over to
Mary's Little Red House for more party fun.
Your comments are wonderful!
