ad an Coffin
In 1915, a woman arrived late at her sister's funeral. When she arrived, she demanded that her sister's coffin be raised so that she could see her one last time. Upon opening the coffin, her sister, Essie Dunbar, sat up & smiled. She went on to live another 47 years.

    • They used to bury people they thought were dead before today's knowledge. Families would tie a string around the "dead" and run it up to the ground. If the bell rang...not dead. Hence the term "saved by the bell".😊😊

    • I googled and in 1915 midway through funeral discovered she was still alive. She had a seizure and they thought she was dead. Unbelievable but true
