Cemetery fandom, here’s one for you.

As viral nova reports:

The grave is Nancy Kerlin Barnett’s (1793 – 1831). When the county decided to build the road through what used to be the local cemetery her grandson, Daniel Doty, was not happy. Doty went out and decided to guard his grandmother’s grave with a gun. He refused to move until they rerouted the road. Eventually the county gave in and built the road around the grave.

I hope I can have such loving grandchildren one day!
