Alco Cemetery - Geocaching

I went geocaching, mainly in cemeteries, today with Larry and Lu.  According to the person who placed the cache in the Alco Cemetery, there are 150 cemeteries in Stone County and he has tried to place caches in all of them.  Getting to some of them can be a challenge because they are hidden away on bumpy back roads.

Two grave sites had baskets of smooth stones like this one instead of flowers.  I would much rather have stones like this than plastic flowers.

I don't know what kind of tree this is but it sure has interesting bark.

This metal plate attached to Amanda Mills gravestone tells about how she tried to prevent men from dragging her father outside so they could torture and kill him.  They ended up killing her, too.  Amanda and her father were two of the first to be buried in the Alco Cemetery.
