The Forgotten Utah Gravesite That No One Ever Visits

If you’re interested in Utah history, you might enjoy walking through the Beehive State’s quiet, peaceful cemeteries to pay your respects to those who’ve passed on. To go way back in time, you can visit the heartbreaking little cemetery in the ghost town of Grafton, and for a baffling mystery, you can visit the gravestone of Lilly E. Gray, whose headstone reads, “Victim of the Beast 666.”

Here’s a gravestone with a legend that many Utahns have never heard, and few people know about this gravesite. Do you know about Old Ephraim?
