Savannah: Wormsloe Historic Site!

IMG_0345IMG_0347Walking along the historic grounds I came upon a locked gate –  inside the grave of the first family buried here,  I wonder how that picture got taken?

“An enormous stone monument and a wrought iron fence mark the first family burial site at Wormsloe. Noble Jones was buried at Wormsloe in 1775 alongside his wife Sarah and, later, their youngest son Indigo. In 1875, George Wymberley Jones DeRenne, a descendent of Noble and Sarah Jones, had Nobel Jones’s remains moved to another cemetery and subsequently placed the monument “to save from oblivion the graves of his kindred.”
