Within Magnolia Cemetery there are many old sections, some in tight together. Family sites are marked inside of rusting wrought iron fences, or parts of them.
Typical wealthy old southern families had above ground burials since cemeteries were on old marshes and swamps.
Interesting fact is that for a long time headstones were carved in New England. They had brownstone, marble, and experienced carvers.
This particular site also uses the low carved stone wall type of site markers. Another common design.
There is so much to see and photograph here that I have started to pick just a small group, or fenced site, and concentrate on more details within.
