I had a deep desire of visiting the Cornish graveyard in Hidalgo since I was a teenage girl. My friend had gifted me some beautiful, analog photographs he took of this graveyard and I was enthralled. Thirteen years later, I finally found myself walking through the English dead and their interesting stories.
I woke up very early that morning to go photo hunting with Joel. Unsure of our destination (the GPS suggested awkward routes), right in the middle of two urbanizations, was the smallest graveyard my eyes had laid eyes on. We arrived to -what’s left of- the Jolly Cemetery.
“The earliest marked grave is that of Margaret Evergreen Robinson, an eleven year old girl who died in 1872.”
