Tour of Highland Cemetery Grave Iconography

Dusty D has long enjoyed taphophilin' around in Washtenaw County cemeteries. There are interesting things in each one without exception, but Highland of course is my favorite. I made a little tour of the south side of the cemetery with a pdf guide you can print out and take over there. This was major fun to research, but difficult, too--there's a lot of vague or somewhat urban-legendy type info out there about some symbols (urn in particular, ugh!) and it took a bit of work to clarify some things. But I love that kind of hunt. At any rate, I hope you enjoy this tour and the north-side tour is coming in 2 weeks.
