This pretty little church on the hill was having a worship service that morning. We couldn't see any cars at first, but as we drove up the drive and circled around toward the back, we saw the parking lot full of cars. I hope we didn't disturb anyone.
All of the tombstones were slanting toward the top of the hill and the church. There were several square stones placed in the ground on an angle. The one in this picture at the end of the row has a child's name (last name Green) with his day of birth and day of death. I also saw some of this same type of marker in the St. Thomas Episcopal Church cemetery in Bath, North Carolina.
This seemingly abandoned church with the red door had a sign that said, "Open for Prayer Daily." This was on a Sunday afternoon somewhere around the little community of Todd.
One of the prettiest churches we saw was the New Sharon Methodist Church in Hillsborough, North Carolina, which is my son-in-law's family church. This is the cemetery where his grandfather is buried. These two pictures were taken late in the afternoon.
