Cemetery Tidbits

The Kansas City Star, March 13, 1906

In Ray county the roads are so bad that recently two days were required to haul a coffin twelve miles. No hearse could be used and even buggies could not be drawn through the mud because the double trees would break. The coffin and the corpse had to be carried by hand along the sodded sides of the roads in places and at other times carried in a two-wheeled cart in order that the burial might be in the home cemetery twelve miles away.
