It sounds a bit creepy, but cemeteries are big stuff in Boston. The Granary Burying Ground, a stop along the Freedom Trail, is "home" to some important historical figures. You'll find the headstones of Paul Revere, John Hancock, Samuel Adams, Ben Franklin's parents, and many victims of the Boston Massacre. Those who look hard enough will also find the spot where Elizabeth Vergoose is laid to rest. Who could that be? Hmmmm...Maybe it's...Mother Goose. Of course, if you think your children won't be able to bear the idea that Mother Goose is no longer with us, it might be best to leave this bit of trivia, er, buried.
