This epithat appears on the gravestone of William Caldwell, a veteran of the Revolutionary War buried in the cemetery of Nazareth Presbyterian Church. The full passage reads as follows: "Remember me as you pass by/As you are now so once was I/As I am now so you must be/Prepare for death and follow me." I did a Google search of the phrase in hopes of finding its origin but was unsuccessful. However, I did learn that this haunting passage appears on many old gravestones from a ghost town in Wyoming to an ancient Scottish cemetery. The image I chose for today's PaD is from another marker in Nazareth cemetery. I have seen this weeping willow motif in many of the historical graveyards I have visited. In this case my Google research was more productive. I learned this Neo-classical Greek Revival motif was popular in England from 1660-1740. Obviously enough, it symbolizes the grief of those left behind after the passing of a loved one. I think it is quite beautiful, and only one of many remarkable memorials found in the Nazareth Church cemetery. Nazareth is one of the most historically important churches in the Upstate. It was founded in 1765 among a group of Scotch-Irish families who migrated from Pennsylvania and later were joined by other immigrants who came directly from the old world. It was these very families who were the core supporters of the Revolution in the South because of their long held distrust for British authority. It is said that almost every able bodied member of the congregation were Patriots and fought in the Revolution. In 1857 the congregation also founded one of the first southern woman's colleges in nearby Reidville, SC. It did not survive the tough economic times that followed the Civil War but many of the historical building remain today. On a future visit I will document these buildings as my trip into the history of the Upstate travels on. I hope you are enjoying the ride.
