Backyard of the Day:

Jacksonville Cemetery, Jacksonville, Jackson County, Oregon

Jacksonville Cemetery is located at the end of "E" Street in Jacksonville, Jackson County, Oregon

 

Vi kørte til Jacksonville, Oregon, som vi skal besøge over to dage. I dag fik vi set den gamle Jacksonville Kirkegård, som simpelthen var fantastisk.

We drove to Jacksonville, which we will be visiting over two days. Today we got to see the old Jacksonville Cemetery, which was just amazing.

 

Gammel kirkegårdsvej ~ Old cemetery road

 

 

Kirkegården er officielt grundlagt i 1860 på jord skænket af J. N. T. Miller, men den første begravelse fandt sted her året før. Gravstenene er i sjælden grad bevaret, og man føler sig helt tilbage i tiden, når man går rundt her.

The cemetery was officially established in 1860 on land donated by J. N. T. Miller, but the first interment took place the year prior. The gravestones are preserved to an unusual extent, and walking around here feels like going back in time.

 

 

 

Mahulda Jane White (1823-1887) og Woodford Reames (1811-1887) og søn Richard "Dickie" Reames.

Mahulda Jane White (1823-1887) and Woodford Reames (1811-1882) and son Richard "Dickie" Reames.

 

Woodford Reames var smed, og siges at have haft et hidsigt temperament. Da han blev uenig med en nabo om det hegn, der adskilte deres grunde, kaldte han naboen en forbandet uærlig slyngel og kom efter ham med en hammer, som han smed efter ham. Hammeren ramte ved siden af, men naboen løb hjem og hentede sit gevær. Heldigvis viste geværet sig ikke at være ladt, og de endte med at gå hver til sit, uden der var nogen, der kom noget til.

Woodford Reames was a blacksmith, and is said to have had a hot temper. When he got into a dispute with a neighbor about the fence separating their properties, he called the neighbor a &@*# cheating rascal, then came at him with a hammer, throwing it at him. The hammer missed, but the neighbor ran home to get his shotgun. Fortunately the gun turned out not to be loaded, and the two wound up going their separate ways without anyone getting hurt.
