A group of people have set up a memorial to Stone Stoned, a pet stone from the early 1900s that has been removed from a cemetery in a northern Minnesota town.
The stone is one of several items buried in the gravesite of the local cemetery.
It is one thing to lay flowers in a cemetery and have them be buried by someone else.
It’s another to have someone lay a memorial in their own memory.
But it’s a whole different animal, said Richard W. Fennell, a history professor at the University of Minnesota who has researched Stone Stones.
He has been digging up gravesites and stone markers in the area for years.
But he said he had never seen the stone in its natural state before.
Fennell said the stones and the stone markers, which were carved into the ground, were carved by a stone quarry that operated in the early 1800s.
Fenny Stone, who owns the stone quarry, says he didn’t know the stone was there.
But Fennill said he knew the marker was from the stone.
“When I saw it, I didn’t realize what it was until it was buried in my yard,” Fenniller said.
“I never thought it would go up in flames.”
Fennill says he was contacted by the local news station and said he would send a professional photographer to take photos.
He didn’t get a chance to get a shot.
Fenny Stone says he is grateful for the attention, and is hoping the attention will help change people’s minds.
“It is time to move past this,” he said.
