Grave Danger




I posted about this grave awhile back and discovered the photo again while sorting through my files. I am curious about this road hazard. I live within an hour’s drive from this site and had not heard of it until a friend took me by it on the way back from a job site. I took photos and still wonder why these remains remain in the middle of a rural road in mid-southern Indiana. It is a great conversation starter, if you are down there but as I have said before, no gift shops or commerce taking place, just a grave in the middle of the road waiting for the right driver to run smack dab into the retaining wall. I can't help but think grandma would be to happy after given a number of years to ponder her plot,that she was poised and ready to create another traffic statistic. Perhaps its time a great, great grandchild stood up to the plate and gave the go ahead to move the plot. Odd JW

Apart from the hazard factor, I think it's sweet. Dunno if sweet is the right word. But here we have someone, unmoved. Even in death. What a story!

clea: Yes a an interesting story when you read the marker. What a long way we have come when it comes to treading on hallowed ground in the name of progress, from years ago on a rural road one man stood up against the man. Today?

It's a cliche, but I think being buried at sea is what appeals to me, away from all the noise and stress of the world.

I mean that in a very positive way, of course. I'm in no great hurry to swim with the fishes.

No one knows about the 1883? Chicago Treaty?
