Notes

After recovering from cancer surgery in late 2019, I started the work of trying to build a freelance graphic design business. Which is when the covid pandemic started. My work was drying up and we as a global community were facing an impending lockdown.

So I got in my car and went on a cemetery tour of upstate New York.

I had spent the night in an AirBNB in Rome NY. I checked out early and got on my way to Forest Hill Cemetery in Utica NY. It was still officially "dawn" when I arrived. There had been an overnight frost, and the grass was still covered. Also was visited by some deer on the way. Hunt's grave was not too difficult to find - he was right off the main cemetery road.

Also buried here is Gilded Age superstar Roscoe Conkling.
