Prune picker

This is the blog site of an old man. As a native Californian I call myself a prune picker. I live in a fifth wheel trailer. My front door is 25 steps from my daughter’s front door in the Piney Woods of North Louisiana. My blogs are often silly and or trivial, and some times educational and serious. I hope that some are interesting. None are long.

Preparing these blogs seems to fill a need in my life. I am compelled to do it. It helps fill the time until I die. It gives me something to do everyday.

The Burying Ground of the Presbyterian Church in Morristown, NJ

Morristown just reeks of history. It was often the headquarters for George Washington. My fifth great grandfather, Solomon Munson, moved here from New Haven, Connecticut before the Revolutionary War and served in the Army. He passed away here in 1803. He was buried in the Burying Ground of the Presbyterian Church. I could not identify his gravestone. There were many unreadable stones. Perhaps one the stones in these pictures is his. I like to think so.

You can see how close the city is.

This picture shows the back of the church.

The next four of my great grandfathers are buried in Kentucky. That is where I am going tomorrow.
