Be careful when you start looking for cemeteries in the deep woods. This is one reason why.
A woman in KY, an avid cemetery hunter did what no gal should do. She had heard about a cemetery in the woods long sought after and went by herself.
It was way off the beaten path.
She found the cemetery and was getting ready to mark the names and dates down when she heard a click on either side of her. She was on her hands and knees. She looked up and saw a fellow on either side of her with a rifle, cocked.
The crop was ready for harvest
In her excitement, she had been pulling up grass and weeds to clear the stones. When she glanced down, she saw what she had been pulling … their”crop” ready for harvesting – the illegal type of hemp!
Thinking quickly (and likely praying a lot!) she turned on the tears and said “Oh, I hope I’m not trespassing … I’m just so happy …. THERE’S GRANDPA!” “I’ve hunted for his grave for years (sob, sob), and there he is, oh Grandpa!” They took one look at her and just walked away. Never go cemetery hunting alone!!!
By the way, she didn’t have the foggiest idea of who was buried there, but bet her real grandpa was proud of her!
