Mt. Olive Cemetery, Sandtown, Delaware





Mt. Olive Cemetery is located on the south side of Delaware Rt. 10 in Sandtown. The year on the wrought iron gate is 1893, but many graves predate this time. Among the earliest are the gravestones of Mary (Longfellow) Hurd and her husband James B. Hurd. I photographed only the Hurd family cluster and the Longfellow family cluster.

Note that column faces were photographed separately, but the names will be grouped together with a blue or yellow background on this table.
