More Photos from Cousin Bernie.
Since Bernie is the photographer, he naturally chose a cemetery with family in it. St. Bonaventure Cemetery in Allegany, New York is quite a large cemetery, and I found many family names among the Kwiatkowskis buried there, including my great grandfather and great-great grandmother (Bernie’s great-uncle and great grandmother), . The family relationships can get a bit confusing when I try to position myself and Bernie with the dead relative, but I did use the cousin finder, and I think I got it right. If you see any mistakes in family progression, please feel free to let me know so I can straighten it out.
The cemetery is named for a local university that students claim to be haunted. Who knows whether the stories are actually true. You can read them here and decide for yourself. In the meantime, here’s one as a great companion to those late night readings. You may want to keep the light on.
