A Fear of Heights and Religion by plutoniancrow A Fear of Heights and Religion by plutoniancrow
*Note*-the title has nothing to do with the story i tell.
There's a wonderful story behind the location of this burned out old memorial. It was said that a little girl, the age of 12, was buried alive in the cemetary where this is located. To this day many believe that she haunts her grave, waiting for a person to come by at midnight on July 17 so she can take their place and steal their body.
The true story of the little girl has become lost over the years. However she wasn't buried alive, she had a sickness and many thought she was buried alive because this sickness made one's heart rate drop dramatically and the pulse to barely move. In the history of the cemetary, it stated that Mrs. McNaughten (the kid's mother) had her dug up to see if she tried to claw her way out. Rumour had it that there were scracth marks, but that's highly unlikely. There is where the history ceases.
Little Mary McNaughten
Buried alive in her coffin
Comes back every July
To prove she will never really die.

Jackson, Michigan-home to the largest walled prison in the world and home to this story.

As far as the fear of heights, I don't have, but the fear of religion, oh my god, I so fear it ;) (Wink)
I like the story, even though it has nothing to do with the title. Neato :) (Smile)
