TULLAHOMA, Tenn. (AP) -- A south-central Tennessee man discovered some unexpected guests on a piece of property -- a graveyard full of people.
Ricky Green of Tullahoma says he bought the land four years ago, but didn't know it contained a burial ground. Greene told The Tullahoma News he discovered the graves a few weeks ago while mowing the grass.
A series of dips prompted Greene to examine the yard, where he noticed the end of a rock sticking up. A little digging turned up a wooden coffin.
A Civil War historian confirmed the presence of an old cemetery, but its history remains a mystery.
Green has marked off places where graves appear to be as he tries to solve the puzzle.
