This is probably the most interesting grave I've come across. Sidney Saunders was a businessman in the late 1800s. He seemed to have the Midas touch... in reverse. Everything he touched seemed to turn to poop. When he got married, his family didn't like his new wife, and intimated that they were living together without the benefit of the clergy. Nowadays that would be a yawn at best, but in those days this was quite a serious accusation and they couldn't produce their marriage license so the scandal mill went at full tilt.
On top of that, their only son died. And then Sid's business, already in danger of failure, burned down in a spectacular fire. Many people intimated that Sid had started the fire for the insurance money. Legend has it that Sid killed himself because he was afraid that others who had been hurt by the fire were going to lynch him.
Sid's wife Annie knew that his family wanted his money, and they weren't going to let her have it if she didn't produce that marriage license. Annie, however, got the last laugh as she used what remained of his fortune to construct this monument to him and her son.
The statue on the monument represents Sidney, holding his marriage license in hand and staring sternly toward the riverfront where the wealthy families that condemned him lived. Annie and their son are also there, the son's grave is marked, Annie's is not.
