Urban Legend Says There’s a Vampire Buried in this Chicago Cemetery

From 92.9 NIN

by Doc Holliday

There is no cemetery in Illinois that has a wilder variety of history than Rosehill. It’s the final resting place of many of Abraham Lincoln’s friends. Oh, and it might also include a vampire. Really.

One of my favorite YouTube places is Faces of the Forgotten. They recently did a walkthrough of the Rosehill Cemetery near Chicago with a man named Brittan who has a deep knowledge of the history of the area. One of the first graves they visit is Mary Sheddon. She was allegedly poisoned by her husband. The legend says you can see an image of her face in the granite of her stone.
