We love to visit cemeteries. They are so peaceful and many of the older ones are like parks. We will be talking about a couple of these park-like cemeteries today. We’ll be in New York to check out a graveyard that inspired Central Park, Brooklyn’s Green-Wood Cemetery. Then there is Spring Hill Cemetery in West Virginia that is home to victims of epidemics and a plane crash. Indiana’s Clark County has several old cemeteries with unique legends and finally our listener Dannah Jones joins us to discuss Maple Hill Cemetery and its creepy legend that will make you think twice about the swings at the playground. All of these places of rest have several spirits at unrest! Moment in Oddity features a tale from listener Chelsea Bishop about a ghost cemetery guide and This Month in History features Jamaica’s Second Maroon War.

Hi there, this is Dave Russell, Dannah Jones father. We’re listening to episode 217 today, the first anniversary of her death. It’s such a blessing to be able to hear her voice as she describes Maple Hill Cemetery and knowing that she now lies in rest overlooking the cemetery. We can never thank you enough for preserving her voice for us and helping us to know how she felt about the cemetery that became her final resting place.
Hard to believe it’s been a year. She was such a pleasure to have on the show. I still have her on my contacts for Skype. I don’t want to delete it. I’m glad that the interview continues to bring you comfort. Take care and God bless. -Diane
