Green (no relation) (probably)
Usually when I see cemeteries that are in disrepair, they’re little ones out in the country and I sort of feel like the relatives of the people buried there are themselves buried someplace and there’s no one left to take care of the place.
But this one? It was one of the most ragged cemeteries I’ve ever seen and it’s in Memphis, on Elvis Presley Boulevard. I noticed it because I was deliberately looking for non-shiny, non-touristy things along the fabled boulevard. And I’m not the only person who thinks it’s ragged: it’s got a one-star rating on Google.
Anyway, I don’t think the Greens buried here are related to me, but I don’t know that for sure.
