Hiking History XVI

Find a Grave is an online service that will, well, help you do just that. Want to know whether anyone well known -- or worth knowing about -- is buried near where you live? Search by name, location, and claim to fame to find the dearly departed to whom you'd like to dedicate an afternoon exploratory stroll. Why, in Brooklyn alone, I could track down the headstones of such Media Dieticians as James Gordon Bennett (founder of the New York Herald), John Bunny, and George Catlin -- and that's just in the first few letters!

Thanks to Charlie McEnerney.
