I remember camping in Maryland one time as a kid. I went wandering through the forest away from the campsite. I literally stumbled over a a headstone covered in vines. When I pulled the vines back and realized what it was, I looked up to see other shapes under a canopy of brambles. Nearby, the foundation of a long-ago cabin.
A family graveyard long forgotten? That thought gave me a shiver.
It happens from time to time that townspeople move away, families reestablish in new areas, and the dead are left behind. A forest grows up in what was once a meadow or perhaps a homestead is abandoned, but these creepy cemeteries that remain in the shadows give us goosebumps and morbid curiosity.
Where have all the people gone?
Let's have a look at some such abandoned memorials.
