    I wonder how many parks are former grave-sites.

    • A shopping center went up on the Queen Victoria hospital site in Melbourne some years ago. My wife was working on the project. Builders found an old grave site but kept it as quiet as possible because the owners obviously wanted to get their retail operating as fast as possible.

      …or neighborhoods?

      One of the nice things about Boston is that they just kept the cemeteries rather than shipping them out to the suburbs. They really are lovely, peaceful places.

    Sandy pushed up some coffins, too.  Who knew that they were burying people in residential neighborhoods in holes no deeper than the coffin?

    It was probably a family member of the property owner of that time. They buried there loved ones on a hill next to the old tree. With time past and properties transffering hands the markers or tomb stones were lost…Not as far fetched considering the age of the tree!!!!

    Good premise for an episode of “Bones”.
