Select Gravestones From The Maysville Cemetery

Ritchey and I fell in love with Maysville when we visited there last October – the city, the people, the history – the cemeteries!  I had previously visited only three of the nine northern Kentucky counties we visited – all along the mighty Ohio River.  I look forward to a return visit! 

The following are various gravestones from the Maysville Cemetery, Mason County, Kentucky.  As you can tell it was a beautiful fall day!
