Revisiting Forest Hill Cemetery Duluth Minnesota and the Joel and Lydia Johnson Graveside

Summer came and went and life got in the way of taking pictures to record at findagrave. We moved from one apartment to a larger one same city of Duluth. Sadly my sister in law passed away in August of this year. Life has been good, life has been sad. Winter is here in our part of the country and thought I should take a few minutes to pass by my mother and father's graves. Snow covered now but a little ways further are head stones and snow is not deep yet. That will change soon I am sure. I had my camera so snapped a few pictures of some of the grave stones.
Tonight I posted 2 names into Forest Hill on find a grave.  Decided I would share one of them with you tonight.
Tonight we are visiting the grave of Joel and Lydia Johnson. Joel was born in 1882 and passed away in 1956. Lydia was born in 1893 and passed away in 1988.

I hope that some day a family member will find this addition at findagrave. I am always happy to add that addition to my family history. Thanks for stopping by.. Grace

Spring is in the air.. for some that means they can start planning their gardens. Before you know the little league baseball teams will start their practice. I love to see the kids playing as I drive by a neighborhood field.

This picture was taken at one of our local cemetery this fall.

And for us here in Duluth that means the shipping seasons starts today. Traffic will stop as the bridge goes up to let the big boats enter or leave the port..

But to me a wandering graveyard rabbit it means the snow will start to melt in the local cemeteries. I can start to full fill the requests in the area and most of all I can go to one of our local cemeteries to visit my family and to work on getting this cemetery on It is huge so is a big under taking but will work on this as time allows.

This is the Duluth Aeriel bridge. At this time we cross it every time we want to go anywhere. But the beauty of Lake Superior is worth it.

Sorry I have been gone so long from posting but we have moved to northern Minnesota and have been buried by snow.

Here is a old section of the cemetery. This is where I have to pretend I am a Billy Goat to take pictures.

See you soon with new grave yard postings.. Grace
