Fairview Cemetery near Greensburg, Kansas. The sexton had to replace the glass after the Greensburg tornado. Local Legend has it that when the glass broke the doll WALKED OUT, wandered aimlessly for miles, BOUGHT SOUVENIRS AT BETO JUNCTION, and returned just in time for the grave repair. If you go to this grave at midnight on a full moon and say "Baby Doll" 3 times you will either be given a BETO junction souvenir, or eaten by Wild Prairie Children. BEWARE!!

Gravestone of George S. Bangs located in Rosehill Cemetery, Chicago. @ the base of the large carved stone tree stump is scale model of railway mail car entering a tunnel. The railway car & tunnel entrance appear to be out of proportion w/ tree & carved foliage & plants. Bangs is credited w/ "Fast Mail" trains, they were specially designed trains consisting of only mail cars w/ expedited schedules designed to accommodate the needs of the Post Office rather than the needs of the traveling public.
