Then I will drive to the Arlington National Cemetery. On September 13 at 11 am I will watch as the ashes of my son Christopher David Monson are placed underground with the ashes of my wife Jackie Lois Monson. God bless them. I will be with them soon.
I am going to spend several days in New Haven, Connecticut. Great grandfathers Thomas, Samuel, and Samuel are buried there. One of them in Wallingford and two at the Grove Street Cemetery in New Haven.
Then it is off to Morristown, New Jersey where my great grandfather Solomon is buried. He served in the Revolutionary War. Several Munsons were at Valley Forge.
Lexington, Kentucky here I come. I have four great grandfathers buried in Kentucky in the area northeast of Lexington. They are Samuel, Samuel (yes, four of my great grandfathers are named Samuel!), Joel, and Abner L. I know that the second Kentucky Samuel is buried at Millersburg, Kentucky. He died in the 1833 Lexington Cholera epidemic.
Don't you wish that you were going with me? Think of all the headstones I am going to see!
