One of the more interesting graveyards that I visited in November was the Old Burying Ground in Jaffrey, New Hampshire. It is located behind the Old Meeting House on Blackberry Lane not far from the Monadnock Inn.
One of the more striking graves is this elaborate one that Danish Sculptor Count Viggo Brandt-Ericksen carved for his first wife. They were in France at the time of their infant daughter’s death and Dorothy realized her own death was imminent and requested that her ashes be buried in the shadow of Mount Monadnock in Jaffrey where they had lived. This grave faces Mount Monandnock.
