Here Lies Jefferson


Late one afternoon over Christmas, I decided to go out for a walk along  the main street of tiny, little Still Pond, Maryland, I discovered this R.I.P. tombstone in the front yard of a lovely old home. I cannot imagine where you would have room to put a horse down to rest because the driveway is right there to the left and the sidewalk and street are directly to the right. Needless-to-say, I did not knock on the door and ask questions. I just stopped and took these two pictures.

  4. Well, it definitely looks like a beautiful spot for the horse to be laid to rest.

  6. Hi Genie,

    you asked about the mouse over thing... click that link & check it out... that's the one I use.

    Let me know if you need more help.

  7. This might sound crazy, but who names a horse Jeff Davis? Maybe it IS decorations left over from Halloween. Good catch. Makes for a LOT of conversation, that's for sure!

  8. I THOUGHT my grocery bill was getting exhorbitant! I NEVER pay attention to the price per pound on meat. I guess I need to now! Ha ha!

  9. By naming their horse the way they have, they have nailed their Civil War colours to the mast!

  10. I'm confused about the 'Jeff Davis' and 'Jefferson', still a shame to lose a good horse and friend.

  14. I can't imaging that either. I'm guessing it's a memorial.

  15. I think if it was left over from halloween it would be a bit spookier.

  20. I found a similar marker last week and had the same question. Is the horse buried here or is this just a memorial marker?

    I love mysteries.

  21. Genie, that's hilarious--it would take one big hole to bury a horse. Here in Montana, when a horse dies on a forest trail, they dynamite it (so the carcass doesn't attract bears). Guess you could still put out a sign...
