prune picker

This is the blog of a prune picker. (Native born Californian) Retired oilfield. I am an old man. (90) I blog a lot about my body and getting old. As I approach death life gets more interesting. More interesting is not good. I still drive. I attend sports, bluegrass, and civic events. I attend swim class three times a week. Some of my blogs might be interesting. A lot of my blogs are silly and trivial. None are very long.

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.
