Infant graves are common in Fisher Cemetery, hearkening back to a time when many children didn’t live to see adulthood. “Sometimes if a baby died, they’d bury it at the head of a grave, and then if another in the family died, they’d put that baby behind it. There’s often more than one person buried in these old tombs,” said Bob McKechnie, cemetery manager.
