Unique Headstones

For some reason I have always had a fascination with graveyards and grave stones; I find them peaceful as well as fascinating. The pins I have here are of very unusual stones.

Natchez - 10 yr old Florence died in 1871. She was extremely frightened of storms and her grief-stricken mother had Florence's casket constructed with a glass window at the head. The grave was dug to provide an area, the same depth of the coffin, at the child’s head, but this area had steps that would allow the mother to descend to her daughter’s level so she could comfort her during storms. To shelter the mother, metal trap doors were installed over the area the mother would occupy.

Captain Hook gravesite in Old Brick Cemetery in Morgan County between Stockport and McConnellsville (Ohio). Legend has it that he designed the tombstone to be rounded so his wife couldn't dance on his grave when he died, as she said she would!
