St. Joe's Plantation

This was a neat, neat stop.... a couple of things jumped out at me.

Firstly, I was knocked out by the Imortelles Funerary Ornaments. What a neat concept! They were thought to take care of the grief for you. I've included the plaque describing these, as well as an example.

Secondly, there was an 1858 hand written succession. I've posted pictures of the translations. Slaves were worth some big bucks back then! I found it fascinating...
