    Oh, well, that's not so bad... if the bodies were there, too, I might have had to move, if it were my place. I would definitely be creeped out by the tombstones, no matter what. Some people think that shit's cool, but not me.

    So... did the tombstones themselves die? And that's why they buried them?

    Ah, they were "outdated" tombstones that likely were misplaced.

    They're where they've been the whole time, undisturbed, under tombstones that are kept up-to-date with relevant information and replaced as needed.

    This is what happens to the tombstones that get replaced, apparently. They are buried and rest, their job completed. Recursive memorials.

    Awesome - free patio slabs! Good for mounting a barbeque on and also a great talking point when passing out the party burgers around said grill.

    This reminds me of when a pal moved into an old house and grounds he'd bought and found half a dozen old broken tombstones piled up at the edge of his land and he used them to make a nice rockery.

    If that was me, I wouldn't help but feel creeped-out yet fascinated at the same time.

    There are remains of a very old small church (including old tombs and tombstones) on my friend's parents' yard. Been there, pretty cool.

    That would be a little creepy, but really cool.

    Yeah, I saw that too, guess as other family members died, they replaced the headstones and didn't trash/recycle the old ones.
    Somebody got lazy in the 70's? Maybe they went to Vietnam and didn't come back to their old job. Hmmm.

    Like others said, just glad no bodies to go with the stones.

    Thats the creepiest thing I've heard all day. Probablly not as creepy as finding a dead body in your local swimming pool.

    The Veteran's Administration has some homework to do for sure; but my question is who owned the home that is affiliated with the Memphis VA Cemetery? And why the hell did they take them? Really unimpressed that they were used in/as a footpath...
