People have been dying to find it...

A man named Peter J. Weller, who was a businessman and restaurant owner from Michigan, died in 1849 and was buried at Lansing's Oak Park Cemetery. 25 years later, he was moved to another location but his headstone went missing... until today.

It turns out a family in Michigan has been using this missing headstone as a table in the kitchen, upon which they make fudge. The discovery was made by Brad Stoecker of Epic Auctions & Estate Sales who came to value some items in the household. He was puzzled by this slab of granite and asked further questions.

The family has no idea where it had come from but they did say "We used the backside of it to make fudge."

Following this discovery, the auction site tried to get in touch with some of Weller's family but they couldn't find anyone. So, they returned it to Oak Park Cemetery for it to be put back in its place. Then, his daughters were found and they helped to restore it to its former glory after being missing for almost 150 years.
