|Reunion Cemetery, Oklahoma County|
Take a birthday drive on the back roads, and you can travel into the past.
I am drawn to old cemeteries and love to walk through them, thinking of the stories, marveling at the names, humbled by the creativity.
Such were the discoveries today at the territorial Reunion Cemetery I found north and east of Edmond. It haunts of tragedies and loves, of lives long and lives shortened.

|"Mother," 1840-1905, |
|No name, but a flag for a vet|
Gone and forgotten. Gone and remembered. When names and tombstones spoke of simpler times, of tougher times, more individualistic times, even though there are newer graves here too.
|The Bridges, Adeline, 39 in 1907, Napoleon, 53 in 1912|
|WWI brother veterans|
|Another WWI vet|
|He died in combat in WWI|
|Bundora Wallace, 30, died in 1893|
|Another one forgotten in a lonely place|
