All But the Waltz: Denton Cemetery
Here, on the crest of the ridge in full exposure to the sun and the winter storms, lie the few acres of graves. How many graves for a town the size of Denton is always my first thought, and how unsheltered is my second….Although the oldest graves go back only about seventy-five years, many are marked with wooden headboards by families who could not afford stones, and their names and dates have weathered to illegibility.
