Tombstone Tuesday - Scenes at Saratoga

Saratoga Cemetery is a small farming community cemetery with about 1,000 burials. It is nestled off the main county road going though Grundy County, Illinois. This was my first visit and I was drawn to the north side where the oldest stones were laid. Here are some photos of this cemetery:
