This is a receipt for a grave plot sold to Thomas Benjamin Carter, June 18, 1874 for $4.
It was "the west half of lot 7 in Block 5" of the "Mechanicsville burying ground"
It is labeled at the top as "Centre Township"
The trustee was a Wm Linxmiller.
The mystery is 1) whose grave? and 2) which Mechanicsville? (Va, Ohio, Iowa, etc.).
Thomas B. Carter was born in Indiana, his sister Emily lived in Illinois, and his mother was married three times (Cain, Carter, and Parker).
