Long Description:
Located in Beaver Creek state park in the state of Ohio, this lock is what is left of a structure build in the early 1800s.

The name derives from the name of person in the family that built the structure, and who eventually died. The coffin was entombed in the stone walls briefly.

The remote location was recently in the local news for a fatality involving a person falling off a nearby cliff. (visit link)
