Marian's Hunting Stories, etc., etc., etc...
Stories of my hunting experiences with family, friends or whatever else I want to blog about.

A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter

Article by Fred Messina, editor of "On Target Outdoors" from The Vicksburg Evening Post on Friday, January 19, 1990. Photo by Bob Phillips.

Bob Phillips came up the other day with a photo of his wife Marian and a deer she got on Brown's Point New Years Eve. The deer was an 8-point with 16 inches of inside spread that weighed in at 190 pounds. A nice trophy in anyone's book. However, the tale Bob told is that this was Marian's fourth deer this year and he claimed that he would have done better than he did if he had not spent so much time hauling Marian's deer out of the woods. Come off it, Bob. We all know who the hunter was.

Some Tombstones at Cedar Hill

City Vault - Circa 1858

You can see the wall crumbling and twigs trying to grow on top of the roof.
Note the air vent. (Click on picture to enlarge)

Marker over the door.

151 years can take its toll.

The last of some pictures I took this past Sunday of some family tombs at Cedar Hill Cemetery which is one of the oldest and largest cemeteries in the United States. Our plot is directly across the road (Lover's Lane) on the west side of the cemetery with the view of the back of the vault. I have always seen this vault but never took the time to check it out or ride through the cemetery and take pictures. Cedar Hill is also the final resting place for an estimated 5,000 Confederate soldiers and the plot is known as "Soldier's Rest." My Son, Mother, Father, maternal Grandfather and my Ex-in-laws are all buried here in this cemetery.

Some of those are pretty old.

It reminds me of all those monuments I saw at Gettysburg.
