Close to home at the request of Town Elders the Lane brothers, Thomas, Richard and Harold successfully retrieved the Bedford Cemetery Sign from the old burial ground in 1865.  Bedford Alchemist historical records state that cemetery sign would awaken and give disturbing messages from beyond the grave.

This prehistoric creature terrorized Wilson Farm before its capture in 1903 by the Bedford Alchemist Society. Although thought dead the creature appeared to escaped the crypts below the old meeting house in 1939.
