Graveyard Anthologies: Tales from the Crypt
There are many stories to be found beneath the stones of a cemetery—any cemetery. These cover the full range of human experience, from sentimental to the triumphant to the tragic. The fascination we have with cemeteries often comes from the fact we will never know what, or who, will surface when doing cemetery research.
Join us as Sharon Donahe shares the spooky stories she has uncovered while doing research in Chenango County cemeteries, some dating as far back as the 1770s.
