1888: The Graves of a Catholic woman and her Protestant husband, Holland. “The graves of Colonel J.C.P.H and Catholic noblewoman J.W.C Van Gorkum. Married in 1842. In 1888, Van Gorkum died, she wanted to be buried next to her husband. Pillarisation (a form of religious and political segregation in Holland) was still in effect at the time, and according to the law, this was impossible. His wife was buried on the other side of the wall, which was the closest she could get to her husband.”
