Pleasant Hill Cemetery: “ our lack of ghosts we’re haunted”

Since we had always sky about, when we had eagles they flew out leaving no shadow bigger then wrens’ to trouble our most aeromantic hens. Too busy bridging loneliness to be alone we hacked in ties what Emily etched in bone. We French, we English, never lost our civil war, Endure it still, a bloodless civil bore; No wounded lying about, no Whitman wanted. It’s only by our lack of ghosts we’re haunted.  Earle Birney 1904-1995

Straight ahead, to the left in (2), you can catch a glimpse of lot 45, which belonged to the Davis family for over 100 years. Beyond the lot lies the mighty Grand.

Grave site marks the remains of Squire and Jennet/Janet Ferguson Davis: long may they haunt us.
