the grave outside the graveyard

This grave is located in North Church Cemetery Aside from having some very old graves, this cemetery is nothing terribly unusual or much to speak of. It does date back to the Revolutionary War and as such it has some especially nice old headstones. Whats odd is that there’s a headstone that sits outside the boundaries of the graveyard, almost on the nearby siedwalk. It’s perhaps 2/3 of the way down the fence along the sidewalk.

  1. Sometimes people were buried outside the graveyard walls if they had committed suicide, were of a certain religion – or committed a crime (I believe). Not sure.
