Week 9 – 50. Up Close

This past Sunday was a LWRDPC field trip to cemeteries in the Arcadia area.  There was a wide variety of tombstones to read and take pictures of, along with learning some history of Manatee and Hardee counties.  One of the more colorful persons buried in the Joshua Creek Cemetery is a cowboy by the name of Morgan Bonaparte “Bone” Mizell.  Bone is said to be the original Florida Cracker Cowboy.  You can learn more about this local legend at:  http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=23524422.  I took this picture of his tombstone and thought that the little statue on top could be better appreciated
