Eeeek!!! Is that a Spooky Scary Skeleton?
It's okay, it's just Skelly looking for his relatives
That's right! Sally and I took Skelly on a little road trip to the tiny family cemetery that sits neglected in the middle of our neighborhood. We could have walked, but lets be real ...
2 blonde white girls walking with a skeleton in this Baltimore neighborhood - Not a good idea!
The Biddison family cemetery has been here since the late 1700's and has almost 75 graves, some of them unmarked and many of the beautiful tombstones have been knocked down and lay under the overgrown ground cover. It's very sad, what has happened to this place ( to this city that I grew up in).
Skelly felt right at home as he rested his rickety bones against the tree.
It's oddly beautiful isn't it. I love the old fence.
You may have seen us visit this cemetery before. Paul and I used to stop here when we would take the atv out for a "snow ride".
No Skelly! I will not rub your feet!!
He's such a ham!
And of course, he didn't want to leave so we bribed him with this red balloon.
It took a lot of searching but I finally found more information on The Biddison family and some of the history of my neighborhood. This article was published in the Baltimore Sun in 1950 and, if you are from this area, it's a very interesting read. I enjoyed learning more about the family who's remains still rest here.
Hope you enjoyed Skelly's adventure.
