Todays CEMETERY OF THE DAY is……. Palisado Cemetery, Windsor, CT (Hartford Co.)…..Palisado Ave (Route #159)   Between Pierson Lane & Pleasant Street in Widnsor, CT.  Once you drive in the main entrance, continue straight ahead and the stones are all the way in the back of the cemetery.  They are easy to spot as they are table shaped.   There are a lot of other Wolcott gravestones here but I am unable to figure out who they are.

 This is a really cool cemetery.  Some of the stones are the most beautiful I’ve ever seen.  Here’s a few artistic shots I took there.  Took them with some left over black and white film on my 35mm camera:
