San Quintín Old English Graves in 2002


The old English graves were already surrounded by newer, Mexican graves and it was not easy to find them. Today, the cemetery is huge and most are post-1920s graves (actually most are post-1980s).

Not totally off topic, but the upcoming Mother's Day is a good day to stay off the highways due to the many intoxicated, mainly sons, coming back from the cemeteries after visiting Mom's resting place.

That along with the rest of the holidays in early May, Dia de Nino 4/30, Dia de Albanil, 3rd., Dia de Maestra 15th, Dia de Madre 10th, Cinco de Mayo, etc... makes for a celebratory month, enjoy.

Don't have any photos but you all should check the one in ejido Francisco Zarco (Valle de Guadalupe) two thirds of it is russian names.
And the one over at San Miguel de Comondu where there is a couple by the last name Blackman with the biggest structures of all the cemetery (Capillas) and some of the town's people say that they have a curse over them.

Good guess but not Dolores. Its off the road going to San Evaristo near La Purificacion. I never noticed it on prior trips going east to west but this time I was going west to east and there it was!
