This weekend I continued my streak of finding bizarre #bafflingthriftfinds with one of the weirdest ones even for me. An actual, used tombstone. I shared it online because this is what I do and because my twitter friends are incredibly entertaining:
It felt weird leaving a tombstone in a resale shop but it also felt weird buying a tombstone that might have been stolen. A quick look on find-a-grave shows that Sahra has a new (if slightly boring) tombstone as of 2007 but I’m not sure if it was replaced because it was stolen or because it was broken. So I decided to see if I could solve this weird mystery and I contacted some of her family members on Ancestry.com but so far none have responded to my “I found your great-great-great granny’s tombstone in a store if you want it” emails. Then I emailed someone from the local tombstone historical society and they have not responded to my “Are you missing a tombstone because I think I know where it is” email, which I assume will be met with a restraining order.
This post doesn’t have an end.
