How Did They Die? Let's Count The Ways!


Caitlin of Vast Public Indifference has counted the ways and she's up to 103. Not only that, but she has the tombstone shots to prove them.

My favorite is:

101 Ways, Part 56: Was Found Lashed to the Mast of His Sunken and Ill-Fated Vessel

CAPT.
THOMAS GREEN HULL
BORN AUG. 17, 1832.
LEFT NEW YORK FOR BALTIMORE
DEC. 21, 1864,
AND ON DEC. 30, 1864, WAS FOUND
LASHED TO THE MAST OF HIS
SUNKEN AND ILL-FATED VESSEL
AGED 32 YEARS, 4 MONTHS
AND 4 DAYS.


If you have a unique "How They Died," post it on your blog and add a link in the comments.

I am not a Gravyard Rabbit, however, I, and my wife do enjoy going to different graveyards and seeing the stones, and wooden markers.

We try to find the history of the place, (like ghost towns etc) and see what they have to offer.

Here in Nevada there are a lot of ghost towns with some really well maintained cemeteries, and some not so well maintained, but still interesting.

I do enjoy your articles, and look forward to seeing more.
