sexton of Bethel cemetery, with John Osburn as helper, were solicited by the friends of John Nolly,

deceased, who died some five years ago, to take up the body and remove it to another place in the

cemetery. Upon their reaching the box they found that the outside box was full of water. Upon removing

the casket it took four stout men to get it out of the grave. Upon opening the casket they found the

features and head but very little changed, except that the hair had grown long enough to reach his

shoulders, and the beard, which was clean shaven at the time of death, had grown near a foot in length.

Some say it is a very remarkable case.)
