How is a Quaker cemetery different? Early Quakers believed that ornate gravestones communicated the dominion of the upper classes, even in death.

They are an illustration of how Friends tried to distinguish themselves from the rest of the world. Equality, Even in Death: Why Quaker Cemeteries are Different Friends believed that, as it was inappropriate to try to elevate some people above others in life, it was equally inappropriate to do that in death. Thus, Friends banned tombstones from their burying grounds because they thought that all that tombstones did was to distinguish some people from others. Equality, Even in Death When Quakers attended church in their parishes in 17th century England, in those churches they would’ve been surrounded by memorials. In some cases grandiose tombs, that even in death were intended to communicate that the upper classes—the people who had sat in the front-most pews by life—still exercised dominion, even in death, by the way that they had buried themselves. Friends felt it appropriate, required of them, that even in death that they bear testimony against such practices that served to puff up human vanity. Early Quaker Burial Grounds So in a Quaker burying ground in the 17th and 18th centuries, most likely when you approached it you would have seen a simple, unbroken spans of Earth. Usually consisting entirely of unmarked graves. There were always some Friends who found that unacceptable. They certainly didn’t want grandiose monuments that spoke to how some families were superior to others, but they could see nothing wrong with a simple stone that helped them remember where a loved one was buried. Modern Quaker Cemeteries By the middle of the 19th century, Friends finally decided that under certain circumstances, marking graves could be appropriate, and so Friends moved towards a new testimony on tombstones. Tombstones would be allowed, but they had to be simple. The name of the deceased, the date of death and the age, or maybe the date of birth. No ornamentation, no epitaphs, no decoration of any kind, and usually strict limits on height and width. If you go, for example, to London Grove Meeting, Chester county, Pennsylvania, a Meeting that goes back to the 18th century, and look at the burying ground, there’s maybe one marker before 1850. But if you go to, say, Gwynedd or Chichester or Old Caln, you’ll find the burying ground full of simple, rough stones, going back into the 18th century. ___ The views expressed in this video are of the speakers and do not necessarily reflect the views of Friends Journal or its collaborators.

I saw a youtube video using newspapers to create beautiful roll roses. She then colored the roses after they were formed and these rose looked wonderful. But i was concern with the acidity of the newsprint against my layouts. After researching the net, I found this site, http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~molewis/tips.htm, where they had a recipe for making your newspaper archival safe. The beauty of this recipe is that it is super economical and the ingredients are readily available in any grocery or drug store. I just ordered a PH pen to see if it did make my paper archival safe. I will upload the video of my results once I receive my PH pen. So i hope you like this, and thank you for watching.

In this part of the forest is an old African-American Cemetery known as Shiloh Cemetery. Though I also heard it was called Rusell Hill Cemetery in Hernando County since this borders the Citrus/Hernando County line. http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~flcitrus/cemeteries/shilohcem.html
