Elmwood Cemetery is the oldest active cemetery in Memphis, Tennessee. It was established in 1852
Elmwood Cemetery was established as part of the Rural Cemetery Movement of the early-to-mid-19th century. A classic example of a garden cemetery, it is notable for its park-like setting, sweeping vistas, shady knolls, large stands of ancient trees, and magnificent monuments.
Beneath the cemetery's ancient elms, oaks, and magnolias lie some of the city's most honored and revered dead; flowering dogwoods and crepe myrtles are interspersed with Memphis history, those famous and infamous, loved and feared. There are veterans of every American war, from the American Revolution up to the Vietnam War, and there are people from every walk of life and culture, including Mayors of Memphis, Governors of Tennessee, U.S. Senators, madams, blues singers, suffragists, martyrs, generals, civil rights leaders, holy men and women, outlaws and millionaires and ordinary citizens.

All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
Buyer to pay $7.95 USPS Media Mail Insured delivery charges.
The shipping charge that I am quoting is for USPS Media Mail delivery. Media Mail is the most inexpensive method that the post office offers and is for items like books, music, etc. The problem is that since it’s the most inexpensive, it’s also the most delayed as for as expected delivery time. I’ve had Media Mail packages take over 3 weeks to be delivered. I will be adding insurance to this package in hopes that will help.
We do have the option of mailing it by USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate packaging which should take 3-4 days for delivery, but that rate would be about $8 more.
If you prefer Flat Rate shipping, let me know and I’ll adjust the invoice before payment is made.
About Combined Shipping:
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased, but as stated above, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of over payment. If you are uncomfortable with that, send me a message with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Due to claims that merchandise is not being received at various international countries (although Customs tracking verifies the delivery), I will no longer be able to process international orders unless payment is made with U.S. currency, including conversion fees. Orders will be processed after funds have cleared a U.S. bank. PAYPAL WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED FOR INTERNATIONAL PURCHASES. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
