miller church & cemetery

 

We drive by this church and cemetery often and I always love stopping to walk around under the amazing trees to read gravestones.  (Here is another.)  We stopped last Saturday and it was the first time I've noticed the church door being open.  It was wonderful to go inside - silence, pale light, feeling alone but not alone, history heavy around me.  Wandering through the cemetery, it's very sad to see entire families buried together - mother, father, and up to six children, age 3 months and on - all having passed around the same time.  What took them?  I found some history about the establishment of the church and cemetery here, but would like to find out more about those buried there.
