In March of 2020, the covid-19 pandemic was starting to become a more serious concern, and in Ohio, there was talk coming out of the governor's office about a shelter-at-home order. I, meanwhile, was recovering from cancer surgery and trying to rebuild my freelance graphic design business, and what few clients I had began to scale back their operations (and a couple of them even closed their doors for good). So I made plans to take a cemetery tour across the state of New York, starting in Meadville PA, finishing in Poughkeepsie, and staying the night at an AirBNB just outside of Utica.
But the day before that trip, full of piss and having nothing to do, I decided to take a quick day trip to Cincinnati to take some pictures at Spring Grove Cemetery, home to the graves of McLean, Matthews, and Salmon P Chase.
McLean's and Matthews's graves were fairly easy to find thanks to information available at findagrave.com. I had to chase Chase quite a bit though before I could find it.
Rewarded myself with some KFC before making the trek back.
