Johnny Morehouse
Birth: 1855
Death: 1860
Montgomery County
Ohio, USA

Unique grave marker of Johnny with his dog and toys. Johnny, the youngest son of John and Mary Morehouse, lived with his parents in Dayton, Ohio in the back of his father's shoe repair shop. Legend has it that Johnny accidentally fell into the Miami & Erie canal one day while he was playing and froze to death, despite his faithful dog's efforts to pull him out. After he was buried, the dog laid on his grave site and wouldn't be moved. A special stone was made in 1861 to commemorate Johnny's dog's devotion. (bio by: Dan)
