A GRAVE WHICH IS NEVER GREEN A Strange Burial Mystery. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 21 November 1913

A GRAVE WHICH IS NEVER GREEN A Strange Burial Mystery. Among the earliest settlers o£ Illin ois was one William Ford. He was a very quiet and uncommunicative man. He was a bachelor, living on a little farm not far from Plymouth, and sel dom going to town, except when ne cessity required. One day he was found dead in his little cabin, In those primeval times there was not much need of the law's delay in ascertaining the cause of death. Ford had died a natural death, that was plain to ali the neighbors who gathered in to pay the laBt offices of respect to the man. A pioneer min ister said a few words over the rude cofiln, but there were no mourners. Some of the women sang a familiar hymn. It was decided to bury the man on the little forty-acre farm that he had purchased when he first came. But when' the six sturdy pall-bearers came to lift the rudely-fashioned cof fin, it was all they could do to budge It. Ford was an ordinarily middle sized man. The coffin was opened.
