mylusciouslife A LUSCIOUS HONEYMOON: Sadly, #OscarWilde's #grave had been overrun by so many fans (especially women who try to leave lipstick marks everywhere, gross!) that they've had to put up a glass barrier.
I'm sure Oscar would have found it amusing that women wanted to kiss his tombstone... #GayIcons

mylusciouslife A LUSCIOUS HONEYMOON: This grave was very sad because it belonged to the artist #Modigliani. His wife was so distraught upon his death that she killed herself the next day and they were buried together.

strangecarolinas LITTLE GIRL BURIED IN RUM KEG
Beaufort's Old Burying Ground, which has been around for nearly 300 years, is home to around 400 gravesites, half of which date back to before the Civil War. And despite sharing the cemetery with many soldiers, the Old Burying Ground's most famous resident might be someone without a name, someone only known as Little Girl Buried In Rum Keg.

Here is her sad tale, according to The Charlotte Observer: "She longed to see England, the place of her birth, and when she was 10 or 12, she begged her father to take her on a trading voyage to London – away from the boredom of a colonial fishing village. Her mother hesitated, knowing the hazards of the sea. But she allowed the trip on one condition: Bring my daughter back to Beaufort.

Sometime on the way back, the girl died aboard the ship. Weeks from Beaufort, the grieving father chose his only option short of tossing his daughter overboard. He purchased a cask of rum from the captain and sealed his girl inside." The little girl, still in the rum keg, was buried in the Old Burying Ground upon their return. Visitors adorn her grave with trinkets, beads, seashells, balls, toys, and, evidently, Dora The Explorer mermaid dolls.

aaronblueeyes A large number of famous politicians, business people, military people, diplomats, and philanthropists are buried at Oak Hill, and the cemetery has a number of Victorian-style memorials and monuments. Seen here are the burial sites of poet John Joyce, Maryland's Bishop William Pinkney, and actor/poet/playwright/author/diplomat John Howard Payne. #washingtondc #oakhillcemetery #cemeteries #gardencemetery #gravesites #art #sculpture #famousburialsites #gardencemetery #georgetowndc 3w

jetsetvegas777 My fascination with Chicago's #historical #gravesites trended toward the #famous as well as the #infamous. I'd quench my #thirst by #researching the many well known figures buried in #chicago and the surrounding areas. Speaking of "quenching thirst" anyone who's drunk a bottle of #water owes a debt to these guys - Otis Hinckley and George Schmidt, founders of Hinckley and Schmidt bottled water company! Both men are buried not far from one another in Chicago's Rosehill Cemetary. #chicagohistory #history #graves #hinckleyandschmidt #rosehill #rosehillcemetary #cemetary #graveyard #morbid #creepy #scary #fascinating #taphophile #bottledwater 4w
