OBITUARIES from page 105
Q: My four-year old son asked why his grand-
father couldn't be buried on his property in
Northern Michigan, his favorite place. I think
I answered him correctly, but please respond.
Historically, until the early I800's, people
often were buried on their own property. However,
plagues made burial on private property impracticaL
Later, the thought of buying a home on a site where
people were interred made everyone uncomfortable,
so this practice no longer occurs.
