Ferndale Cemetery
The Ferndale Cemetery is the final resting place of many immigrants who worked in the leather mills, tanning factories and glove companies here in America. The couple here named Eva and John Pencheff was originally from Tyurkmen Bulgaria, where their last name was Penchev. Many last names were revised as the people who processed them in immigration spelled it phonetically as most immigrants from Bulgaria could not speak good English. Almost every immigrant had a sponsor, like my grandparents here and as such many friends from the "old country" wound up at the same location. Back in a time when they were all young and first arrived; they and their friends got plots together in this graveyard, knowing that they would spend eternity close to each other; which is the case here.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
