City Cemetery & an African Cemetery in Key West Florida

Greetings — in the City Cemetery in Key West, Florida lie the remains of some of the most colorful characters we’ve encountered in our many years as cemetery hounds. In these first twenty listings, you’ll meet a boxer, a bar owner and Captain Outrageous. Stay tuned for more to come.

Key West also remembers an African Cemetery — not a slave cemetery — those interred here were freed slaves.


Cemeteries in Houston and Puerto Rico

Greetings — Marks & I have been traveling this winter but that hasn’t stopped our search for interesting cemeteries and interments. Check out today’s postings: Part I of Memorial Oaks Cemetery in Houston and the Cementerio Santa Maria Magdalena de Pazzis in San Juan Puerto Rico, one of the most stunning settings we’ve ever seen.

Look for the Key West Florida Cemetery in a couple of weeks. It’s got some great characters.

Enjoy. Barbara
