Dorchester Graves is the fruit of a lifelong interest in cemeteries, graveyards, family plots, and church yards.
With an interest in genealogy learned from my grandmother and a lifelong interest in photographing these beautiful, serene places of rest and remembrance, sharing this passion was the next logical step. After researching the family tree and coming up with some missing branches in a family that never ventured outside of the county until the 1940’s I thought locating the missing members would be a simple task.
Simple until you find out that if the stones weren’t washed away by rising tides that they were moved, damaged, destroyed, overgrown, lost to marshland, or tilled under for agriculture. So this website will chronicle my attempts to plot these resting places on a map for posterity.
