Impish Tribute to Charles Jacob “Charlie” Affelder (1915 – 1994) – Find A Grave tombstone pays tribute to Charles Affelder’s passions. According to his daughter, “The face on the memorial bears a slight resemblance to him, but the gargoyle figure and pyramid topper are both a whimsy of the talented sculptor who created the monument.”

A Grave designed so a Mother could still Comfort a Child

A mother  had this grave designed for her 10-year-old daughter in 1871. While she was alive, the daughter was terrified of storms. The grave was constructed with an entrance that descends to the level of the coffin. Her mother could go into  the tomb during storms to comfort her child.

Something about this one brings a feeling of peace. Like Jesus is comforting you now child.


This grave is in Indiana. Most of the graveyard was moved to make room  for astate highway. The grandson of the woman buried here refused to have his grandmother moved. The county eventually gave in and built the road around the grave.
