Sedgwick County Cemeteries

With the end of our parks journey, Jeremy thought it would be interesting to visit all the cemeteries in Sedgwick County.  Our goal is to find the oldest grave, any famous graves (local celebrities or famous people) and the most interesting headstone.

While graveyards might conjure up horror movies or Scooby-Doo Mysteries. Most are quiet, contemplative parks for people to pay their respects to those they loved and lost.

In the past I have taken most of the pictures and did the research and writing. This adventure gives Jeremy the lead photographer to show off his unique style and look to our website.

Interesting side note. “Six feet under” came from a 1665 outbreak in England. The mayor of London required the bodies to be buried six feet down to avoid further infections.
