Old Cemetery on 519
I stumbled upon this very old and well-maintained graveyard while exploring 519 near the Rowan/Morgan County line. Some of the stones are so old, the engraving has all worn away. A few of the ones that are legible date back to the early 1800's and most bear the name Blankenship. One grave has a tree growing through it. I wonder if the relatives of whoever is buried there planted it as a loving gesture in their memory.
