The Missing Tombstone

A Knoxville, Tennessee man recently stopped by a garage sale, where for $2 he acquired the tombstone of Clara Nielsen, a one-month-old infant who died in 1881.  As this local news story reports, he searched for Clara and ultimately returned her tombstone to her Nebraska grave.  I know that I am a total cemetery/genealogy geek, but this story really touched me.
