Cradle to the Grave
A Photographic Tour of Stephenson County, Illinois Cemeteries
by Dave Anthold
In June 2012, I explored six cemeteries in Stephenson County, Illinois. I was in pursuit of how we remember our loved ones after they have left this world. I found Civil War graves, communities that remembered war heroes, headstones shaped as cowboy boots and so much more.
This is my story of these hallowed grounds.
As a blogger and photographer, I have traveled the world with Encouragement International, International Interns and The Agape Singers. I capture stories and images, and relay them back to supporters all over the world. In my day job, I blend science with design to craft workspaces that engage employees to perform their best.
