The Premature Burial

After marriage, however, this gentleman neglected, and, perhaps, even more positively ill-treated her. Having passed with him some wretched years, she died, -- at least her condition so closely resembled death as to deceive every one who saw her. She was buried -- not in a vault, but in an ordinary grave in the village of her nativity.

So she didn't even fight? This gives me the chills.

I'd imagine if being buried alive was an early form of capital punishment that there would have been a lot less murders on this earth.

Looks like a farm on interstate 301 in Maryland and Virginia! Spooky!
