This gravestone marker is from the Goldfield Pioneer Cemetery in Goldfield, Nevada. It marks the grave of the "Unknown Library Paste Man" who was a starving vagrant who dug up a tub of library paste out of the trash and consumed enough to be a lethal dose. In addition to the flour and water, the paste contained small amounts of alum, which is poisonous when consumed in large doses.

Staglieno_Boschetto Staglieno Cemetery - Genova, Italy. Creepiest gravestone ever.

Local legend now claims that Todor was a vampire and roams the immigrant section of the cemetery. In Colorado Curiosities hes described as a tall thin man with a black coat, dark hair, and long fingernails  that can often be found sitting on his tombstone. A cedar tree now grows in the middle of the grave from the stake that was used to kill him. Great memories of visiting with my beloved Mother.

Cemetery stone Belpre, Ohio Epitaph reads: "Death is a debt to Nature due. Which I have paid and so must you."
