I saw that ornate grave on Tulls Creek Rd infant grave in passing. It has
metal around it. It is really sweet to think someone crafted that piece

Attended a party one night with Mr. Edwin Kellem, the Kellems are from
Princess Ann County, Va. Mr. Kellem was an attorney at the time. The
highway department wanted to extend a road. There was a grave in the path
of this road. Now the delima, the grave was non other that Major John S
Mosby (the Grey Ghost). He knew that if he advertised that the grave as
Major John S Mosby CSA, that all kinds of kin would be coming out of the
work work and a big mess would ensure. So to keep everything legal, he put
an advertisement in the legal section of the paper, no one reads that,
simply stating that the highway department needed to move a simple grave for
J Mosby, No one came forward, and Mr Kellem planted, the second most
revered man in the civil war, my great great grand fathers commanding
officer, Major John S. Mosby CSA (the Grey Ghost)
So my friends anything is possible.
