Tennessee State Library and Archives: The Richard C. Finch Folk Graves Digital Photograph Collection is now on TeVA (formerly on the Library and Archives’ Flickr). This link goes to a Facebook post. “Dr. Finch has visited hundreds of cemeteries in Tennessee, Alabama, Kentucky, Arkansas, North Carolina, Louisiana and Texas photographing covered graves. His main focus has been on comb graves, so called because architecturally, the slabs of stone make a roof or comb over a grave.” Wow, I have never seen a comb grave before. I’m not going to give you a pointer to learning more about them because the Facebook post does.
