Wolfe Cemetery

I was writing about the Wolfe Cemetery in Hocking County today, a beautiful old family cemetery my daughter took me to a few years ago. Carl has visited it, of course, and he's thinking of including it in his talk on Ghosts of Hocking County.
Friends nor physician could not save,
Her mortal body from the grave,
Nor can the grave confine her here,
When Christ doth call she must apere.
This is the verse on Rhoda Dorr Wolfe's grave, the first one buried there, in 1845, May 9. I love the verse, don't you? Practical, resigned, religious, all in one.

It makes you wonder what will be on your own gravestone if you even have one. There are so many beautiful old cemetaries, but not so many new ones. New ones just seem to be a place to list born and died and then move on with life somewhere else.
