....though it's hard to see.

Dr. Timothy Clark Smith of New Haven, VT. passed away way back in 1893 (On Halloween, even!) and is buried in a very unusual grave. Being buried-alive was a common occurrence back then and the prospect freaked him out to no end. So; He had an elaborate grave built with a window over his face so that, in the event of a premature burial, he would be detected alive and have some light.

....Fortunately for him, his death went off without a hitch. Today you can see the grave and look down into the window and see his long-dead corpses' face (except that these days, it's a bit hard due to the murkiness of the glass).

I wish there was a photo where they managed to get a glimpse of the face....

....However; The best I could find was this.

If you can see anything then, you have better eyes than I!

Just look more up on it. His face is 6 feet below the window, the squareness is the shaft that goes down

I know. There was once a time when people could see down 6 feet and see the skeletal visage.

Perhaps with a good flashlight when the sun's low or at night might get you something. I wish there was a way to see.

People have tried that. Unfortunately, there's too much murkiness from the condensation, for anything to be seen. If only they could remove the glass and clean it, but alas that's never going to happen.

Fun idea. Make a window for your whole body and add some hydraulics to make you move and jump. :D

I wonder if there are old photos of this guy when he was alive? I know he lived in the 19th Century but they did have photos back then and I'd imagine a physician would be paid well-enough to have a portrait done.

Heck; He managed to get an elaborate underground tomb constructed (His body is actually in a room with his wife's. The whole thing's a big underground vault with a stairway and everything) he must have had some serious moolah.


Judging by the angle and everything....

....I'd imagine that the face would be about here.
