Discovery of a Mysterious Vault
Jackson, Ohio February 21.
Our village is full of wonder and excitement. Martin Marker, J. W. Hughes and Washington Long, in digging a grave in the cemetery near this village, about ten
at the cemetery have by means of burning straw, made light in the vault and, though none have the courage to enter further than the entrance, it has been discovered that there is, immediateley to the west of the opening, a chamber of about ten feet square, with steps dilapitaded down its eastern side. Three other chambe , rs branch out of this; one to the north, one to the south and the other to the west. We are all curious of course, to know when and by whom these vaults were made and filled.
