Fun With Find a Grave: Ichabod Crane

In Spirit of the upcoming Holiday- Halloween, Today's Character name: 

Ichabod Crane-- the main protagonist from Sleepy Hollow.


The character of Ichabod Crane has been around for awhile- but my favorite portrayal of this character is the 1999 movie- Sleepy Hollow, played by Johnny Depp. 









Ichabod Crane is obviously a fictional character, but I was actually very surprised to find that there are 3 Ichabod Crane's on Find a Grave!



~Ichabod Crane (b. unknown, d. unknown)-- buried in First Presbyterian Churchyard in Morristown, Morris, New Jersey.

~Col. Ichabod Bennett Crane (1787-1857)-- buried in Asbury Methodist Cemetery in New Springville, Richmond, New York (Staten Island).




~Ishabod G. Crane (1852-1925)- buried in Posey Township Cemetery in Fredericksburg, Washington, Indiana.
