Mystery Grave
We recently purchased a very old, small stucco house in Walsenburg, Huerfano County, Colorado. Amongst the rubble in the yard during our clean-up we found a tombstone. It reads: Leighton M. Ariano January 9, 1925 to March 14, 1926. We don't know the mystery behind the stone. Is the child buried in the yard? Was the tombstone engraved incorrectly and thrown out? Maybe the childs name is Ariano Leighton? There are a thousand possibilities. In case this information may be of value to someone we have posted it here.
