Tombstone Tuesday

This past Wednesday I took family that was visiting from out of town to the old Cataldo Mission. I knew there was a cemetery there and we all wanted to see it. What we didn't know is that there are two cemeteries. One was for those in good standing with the church, which is neat and clean and well cared for, though most of the stones are now gone. The other was for those that were not in good standing with the church. It is back on the hillside over the swamp. It had little individual plots and most of it is overgrown with bushes. Only a few were visible.
