I stumble upon an old cemetery in the woods
|Hiking around Carrington Lake in Menifee County,I by chance found |
something I did not expect to find.
|This is the most Primitive Grave yard I have seen. |
Mostly just rocks Only One headstone has any inscription.
|In This Pic You can somewhat see the sunken area of the body below.|
|This Headstone was so craggy getting a rubbing was |
impossible so I just rubbed charcoal into the carvings
The name was H. Derosett .Most of the dates
were too faint to determine .Died 1911? or was it 1811?
|Walking up the hill I discovered a total of 14 Headstones|
|Most of the other stones consist of nothing more than flat rocks buried half way .|
|Continuing my Trek in Menifee I Got in my Vehicle and drove |
down 36 a mile or two to visit the old ''MINES'' on Benson Ln.
|There Used to be two wide Openings side by side just to the |
side of the road you could see as you drive by a rocky hilltop.
Now one seems to have collapsed in the last few years.
|Cave in, This one at one time had about a 15 foot ceiling.|
|I used to assume these strange openings in the ground were man made Mines of some sort ,However knowing more about Geology I can see the are most likely just natural caves.|
|Continuing on you will be intrigued by what I |
find next just a few miles down the road, to be revealed in my next post.
