Death’s Cold Embrace

Not my favorite time of year, but it can sure be pretty sometimes. Today’s photo comes from almost eight years ago, and the subject matter is from about 110 years ago.

Tombstone of Captain Thomas Smith

Ashland is apparently a smoky mess these days. I’ll be back in town in a couple weeks. Hopefully the skies will clear up soon. Today’s photo is from a foggy morning rather than a recent smoky day.

This headstone is rather interesting. It seems like the writing wasn’t completely planned, and the engraver added some words in after the fact. If you can’t read the words, try clicking on the image while on a larger screen.

Capt. Thos. Smith was born on the 14th of September in 1809 in Campbell, Kentucky and died on the 4th of November in 1892 in Ashland, Oregon. According to this site he did more than hold the savages at bay. He also started the Bank of Ashland.

The fall season and cemeteries seem to go hand in hand. Neither looks quite right without the other.
