First of all, I found my very own Graveyard Rabbit! He looks like a baby to me, and didn’t have the good sense to hop away. Of course, that iron fence between Lancaster Cemetery and St. Mary’s Cemetery was his protection from this Graveyard Rabbit.He was as curious about me as I was him and even posed for me! Twice! Now the second jackpot could be fodder for a number of jokes, because I found a graveyard in a Trailer Park! Yes, Brubacher Cemetery is located under a tree, behind the barn and next to one of the trailers in King’s River Haven Mobile Park, just north of Bainbridge, Pennsylvania.
Sounds like something on the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, doesn’t it? Jeff Foxworthy could probably think of a quadzillion jokes! All of that went thru my mind, too, until I saw the spot. Notice how manicured the lawn is? and no broken headstones! But the truly remarkable thing to me is the fact that after almost 200 years, the headstones were still readable!
Abraham Brubacher’s headstone is over 200 years old and has been thru that many winters, very close to the Susquehanna River, is still in one piece and can still be read without any effort or strain. Every one of the seven headstones there were in the same condition. I just wished I had Brubachers in my family tree!
With my good luck rabbit and my Trailer Park Graveyard, I can honestly say
It’s been a good week in Graveyard’s for this Lancaster Graveyard Rabbit!
