The husband's cousin came for a visit this past weekend. (a.k.a. Adele) So we headed for the beach! What a BEAUTIFUL weekend. The weather was incredible! Absolutely perfect. We enjoyed every bit of it. And of course I had to drag her through a cemetery. LOL I've had my eye on this cemetery for a while now. We drive by it when we're toodl'n round at the coast.
It sits behind this wonderful old church The Clatsop Plains Cemetery established in 1846-1850. It is located right off Hwy. 101 about 9 miles north of Seaside, Oregon.
A beautiful stone
Such a beautiful day
Pardon the scrunched up face. LOL. (I must'v been squinting because of the sun and trying to read the old stone). This family seemd to have lead an interesting life. Richard Hobson was born in 1829 in England, died on the Jane A. Falkenburg between Honolulu and Astoria in 1878. George John Hobson born in Oregon 1854, died in Australia in 1855. James Robert Hobson born in Australia, drowned in the Skipanon in 1863. (the Skipanon is a tributary of the Columbia River). Click on the photo below to see one person's genealogy of Richard Hobson. Wooden and tugs at the heart strings
Thanks husband's cousin for walkin through the cemetery with me. ;o)
