    pirate headstone in cemetary, photos added.

    My brother took us to this old cementary at this old church that dates back to the 1750's , there's four tombstones there has no names engraved but three has skull and crossbones and the fourth just crossbones. nobody has any information on the headstones. i was wondering has anybody seen anything like these before. makes you wonder if treasure is buried there. X marks the spot.
    The cementary is in NC the church name is THYAFIRA CHURCH.

    I hope someone can speak up about these. They are really neat.

    Where are these located? Where in the world?

    From what I've been reading the scull and cross bones on headstones doesn't have anything to do with pirates.
    Is it possible that the grave contains the remains of a Freemason, and the Fremasons used this symbol to denote a Master Mason?

    I bookmarked this page because when I am in SC this coming year, I may make a side trip and check the historical society.

    If I lived there I would be there in the morning cause this is the type of stuff that trips my trigger

    Just have to know, and between Church, Historical and County records the truth is there.

    Hey jeep if you found out anything about the headstones let me know, i was going to do some research on them but my time was limited when i was there, and now i'm working 6 days aweek. travel around salisbury theres alot of history there, colonial history and civil war history. there was even a civil war prison there too which is privite own now.

    Yep, it was fad in the early colonial times. I saw tons of them in Scotland from the 18th century.

    I found this pdf. link that says it just means death, mortality or finality. Personally I wonder if maybe it was a warning that the bodies buried there had some sort of disease like small pox or the plague.
