The Silver Legend of Wellsville, Ohio

Mike and I found the Silver Crypt today on the bank near Spring Hill Cemetery in Wellsville!  I love discovering  things like this.  The Silver Legend goes like this:
There was a man with the last name of Silver who was very rich, but also very evil.  He was so evil that he was forbidden to be buried on Hallowed Ground.  Instead he and his family were buried in this old Crypt, just near the cemetery.  It is unkept, with vines and trees growing all around it.  One of the crypts burial chambers was broken into, as you can see.  Rumor has it that the body of a baby was stolen from here and sold.  Ewww.  

I am now looking for more info on this burial crypt and any other stories told about it.  I think it is a shame that it is hidden over the hill on the bank, broken into, and falling apart.   There has to be another reason why this is here and not taken care of.  If you know, please let me know.
Oh, and we are so going back again!  Next time with my crew!
