The hunt is on for the lost 176-year-old grave of a 5-month-old girl.

The Berkshire Eagle reports for more than 35 years, a gravestone has been haunting the offices of Clarksburg Town Hall, and nobody could remember how it got there, or where it came from.

People have been working around the stone for decades, sometimes wondering about its origins, but mostly just treating it like part of the office decor. Through the years, it was kept in the town clerk’s office, and for at least the past 20 years,  it has been in the town administrator’s office.

It seems to be a classic limestone grave marker. It belongs to the grave for Jean Renfrew Miller, who died at 5 months old in 1845. According to the inscription on the partially legible stone, she was the daughter of James and Catherine Miller. The last line on the stone partially is visible and reads: “Alas how changed … lovely flower.”
