Buried Alive In New Haven, Vermont


A man buried with a window in his tombstone! Read about it HERE I have read about people being fearful of being buried alive and having a bell in case that unfortunate event happened but this is the first time I have read about a window placed in the tombstone.

  1. This is a new one, I have never heard of a window before. But how clever. You know, this is how the term night watchman came about. For the first night after being buried, a friend or family member would sit by the grave to be sure to hear the bell ring if the buried really was not deceased.
