Death Becomes Us

This is the entrance to Bloods Point Cemetery near Flora Township in Northern Illinois. So named for the Blood family who were among the earliest settlers in the area. Obviously it’s a draw for teenagers, ghost enthusiasts, and thrillseekers alike (with a name like that!), but it’s been vandalized more than a few times in the last 50 years. The link above will take you to a site dedicated to it’s resoration, which is a worthy cause. Some of the interred victims of this vandalism ($8000 in broken tombstones) date back to the 1800’s (when the cemetery was founded) and have no relatives to replace their monuments. All help is appreciated.
