Perhaps they were neighbours and your grandmother had a large plot which she
could afford to share. Folk did some funny things when it came to burials.
If you knew when your grandmother purchased the plot and that happened to
coincide with the date of the first death that might give you a clue.
I've got a couple of shared plots in my family but they all turned out to be
relatives of one sort or another.
Also, if what you have is taken from a headstone (and not burial records),
that too can be interesting because people often included 'memorials' in
headstones without burying the folk in those plots.
