Mr. Strickland had a glass plate in the top of his above-ground tomb. It was said, that he was worried that when he was buried he might not be dead so his wishes were to be buried with a gallon of water and an ax so that he could break through the glass with the ax. Over the years, vandals broke the glass out and stole items from inside the grave and messed up his remains. There is now a plexi-glass in the top of his tomb but you cannot see through it. I saw it today but did not snap a picture of it.
