Subject: RE: Origins: Buried alive - is this story true?
There exists yet another such story (probably among many), this one associated with Charnes Hall and the family Yonge, apparently documented in a book or booklet called _Staffordshire_ by Vivian Bird. I saw a brief description in the Staffordshire County Museum at Shugborough Hall in Staffordshire in 1988, and I too was moved to write a song based on the possibilities in the story, whether or not true.
