Walk with the Spirits

The Summerville section of Augusta celebrates its sesquicentennial this year and in addition to the annual Tour of Homes, there was a parade and guided tours of the historic Summerville Cemetery. While learning about the history of the cemetery and the iconography of the headstones, we were introduced to some of the Augusta residents who are buried there.

Depicted here is Judge Ebenezer Starnes (1810-1868), portrayed by Danny Craig, Superior Court Judge in the Augusta Judicial Circuit.
