“Two grave-stones, belonging to a man in Elmira, N.Y., and already up in the burial ground over members of his family, were attached for debt, a few days since, and sold at auction. The right thus to attach stones standing in a cemetery is being tested in the courts of law in that place.”
From the “Mariettian” published in Marietta, Pennsylvania on January 29, 1859.
I found this while searching for something else and it would be interesting to see what ever happened in the “courts of law” in Elmira. Anybody in the Elmira area interested in looking this up?
. . . and I’m really curious as to just who would buy them!!
