Graveyard Rabbit Carnival – The Oldest Stone – January 2011

The topic for the January 2011 edition of the Graveyard Rabbits Carnival was

The oldest stone.

“This topic was submitted by the Association. Post a photograph of the oldest tombstone in your family collection, your local cemetery, or one you just happened to bump into in your Rabbit travels. That would be the oldest burial date!”

I am always amazed that for some reason some headstones stand the test of time, yet others don’t.
I submitted for this Carnival, the stones we found whilst on the Isle of Bute in July 2009.

Here is one of my favourite photos from this collection, which shows the mix of Graves stones.
