A Tennessee man doing some backyard maintenance was surprised to stumble across tombstones buried in his walkway. Jason Blackburn, 35, of Memphis was cleaning a stone walkway when he discovered 13 tombstones from a historic military cemetery buried about three inches deep.
"My first reaction was, 'Oh my goodness, I hope there's not dead bodies in my backyard,'" said Blackburn.
Turns out, there were no dead bodies, just the headstones. But typically when headstones are replaced, they are destroyed at the cemetery.
All the headstones were on record to have been removed in 1970, according to Ramon Miller, director of the cemetery, in the report. They found no headstones missing in the cemetery.
