Remembering Juliet Skinner

Another image from the tree marking at Camp Deerpark. Walked by this family graveyard after finishing up in Harvest Area #1 on Saturday. The whole setting was quite powerful. The blowing snow, the freezing cold,  and the tombstones: "For Mother, Juliet, wife of Thomas H. Skinner, DIED Apr. 25 1853". The smaller stones are for the children: "Henry J., Aged 1 Yr, 2 mos, 18 D", "Matthias P., Aged 17 D", and "Thomas G. Aged 8yrs, 2 mos & 6 D". Sigh. I bet times were really hard in the lower Shawangunks 160 years ago. [NOTE: Requiescate in pace, Skinners].
