The grave of the owner of the local clothespin factory in Middlesex, Vermont.

After John Milburn’s wife Sarah died in 1930, he was so overcome with grief — and so desperate to be rid of all his money — that he erected an elaborate series of statues of himself and his wife in various epochs of their life together, carved from top-of-the-line Italian marble  then shipped to the town of Hiawatha, Kansas.

This grave in Medina, Tennessee is of a 5-year-old girl named Dorothy Harvey, who died in 1931 who loved dolls so much, her parents built a dollhouse to mark her grave.  According to legend, those brave (and foolish) enough to look into the dollhouse will see her ghost.

Despite the investigations of the curious, no one knows how Lilly E. Gray became a victim of the beast or why her headstone in Salt Lake City, Utah bears a "666."

This headstone in Montreal may seem innocent until you take a closer look at the inscription.

Below are some odd grave markers from Russia.

Our last image come from the Philippines where coffins have been placed on cliffs for centuries.  The practice also takes place in China.
