Description Off the two lane road leading from Cuddebackville New York to Hartwood, New York, lies a small forgotten cemetery just off the side of the road. The stones are crumbling, barely legible on some, others bearing dates going back to the mid 1800's, and yet some stones bearing only initials letting people know these were slaves buried along side their massas. Back in the era when slavery still existed slaves were not permitted names engraved on their stones, and masters wishing to be buried with their slaves were not permitted burial in public cemeteries.This stone belonged to someone named 'Decker', dated 1848.Composed in Photoshop with original textures, layers and light filters. Images has been desaturated.
