John Robert Craig
Birth: Apr. 2, 1877
Death: Dec. 31, 1931

Traveling salesman with a cheating heart. He had traveled to be with a lover and celebrate the coming new year at a prominant hotel in Indianapolis. While in bed with his lover he suffered a heart attack and died. The lover fled the scene. After authorities found out who he was and where he lived, they contacted the new widow and informed her of her husband's passing and the situation in which it happened. The wife, now very hurt, said "He made his bed. Now he'll lie in it." So, she brought him back to Terre Haute and put him in Highland Lawn Cemetery. She had a special tombstone built just for him. It resembles a bed, so it will remind everyone just how he died. She even had him buried on his side of the bed.
