I photograph the beautiful carving detail and statuary in cemetaries for personal interest & preservation. The more time I spend in cemetaries, the more interesting history, stories and stones I find. I am especially interested in taking photos for future generations and people who may be miles away - I think that adds a meaningful purpose to my outings :)|
At the forums encouragement, I'm adding many of the photos I've taken if they have names on them - If I can add one link in someone's genealogical chain, I'll be happy!

|Max E. Rockafellow||Additional Information on Potter's Field|
Hi Jamie,Thought you may to see write-up on Potter's Field. Max
This person is buried in the Potter’s Field area of the Eagle River Cemetery. Potter's Field, paupers' grave or common grave, is a term for a place for the burial of unknown or indigent people. The US expression Potter's Field derives from the Bible, referring to a field used for the extraction of potter's clay; such land, useless for agriculture, could be used as a burial site. In the Eagle River Cemetery Potter’s Field graves are full graves marked with a burial lot number etched on a cement marker, 4” in diameter, buried flush with the ground. Many markers, over time, were covered with soil and overgrown grass. As of August 2015, all Potter’s Field markers have been located, uncovered and painted red by Max E. Rockafellow, member, Eagle River Genealogical Society. The Cemetery Sexton encourages relatives to arrange for placement of a monument or marker. The GPS coordinates, 45.91658 – 89.23495 are for the center of the field.
