James Worts & Elizabeth

James Worts & Elizabeth
I couldn't believe I stumbled on this. When our travel-writing class took a "field trip" to the Gooderham & Worts Distillery (now an arts centre), I grew fascinated both with the place, and with its "ghosts."

One of these "ghosts" was James Worts who, the history suggests, committed suicide somewhere on the distillery grounds, after his wife died in childbirth.

And here is their grave. And yes -- they are both described as having died in the same year. With no other explanations, which is understandable.
