"Two months lena's body barely shows any signs of decomposition. She doesn't look like a rotting corpse. She very much looks ally like sure her fingernails and hair have grown in little alive or dead. That is to be expected.

That even the skeptical. Dr metcalf doesn't have a satisfactory explanation for it. According to brown family oral tradition. That wasn't the only surprise. Lena was apparently laying on her stomach upside down as if she'd been like tossing and turning in her grave or as if she crawled back into her coffin after a night of feasting on her brother's soul.

Now let's get back to the story on march seventeenth. Eighteen ninety two residents of exeter rhode island found the vampire that was attacking their town mercy. Lena brown who had died two months earlier after zooming lena's body her heart and liver were ripped out and burned on a nearby rock. The ashes were then collected and mixed with water to be given to her brother. Eddie as a medicinal tawny which he was instructed to drink and he most likely did now whether or not he was told it was in. The tonic is an entirely different story. It all sounds a little barbaric right. Just a little over a century ago americans weren't making movies about vampires. They were literally digging them out of the ground and feeding their organs to their sick relatives. I mean it's a little easier to wrap your head around if it's just like a one time thing. One town one tonic. One vampire exeter was just an unlucky drop in the bucket. Except that's not true at all mercy. Lena brown wasn't new england's first vampire accounts. She was the last for nearly a century before her. The forests of new england were littered with them seriously. More than eighty. different nations. Have been tied to vampirism in america and the earliest ever recorded happened not long. After the country's founding in seventeen eighty four a local politician wrote a letter a weekly newspaper about some doctor who was going around town people to dig up and burn their dead relatives in eighteen. Fifty nine henry david. Thoreau wrote in his journal about vermont family who burned the lungs and heart and liver of their dead relatives to prevent the spread of disease. Now you might be like but you know. I didn't hear any mention of vampire in either of those. And you're right you. Didn't you heard burning dead relatives. And that's because these documents were written from the perspective of high society craning. It's next to peek through the trees at their backwoods neighbors and their satanic rituals uc respected gentlemen. Wouldn't be caught dead using the word monster. But it's now know that these semi ritualized burnings almost explicitly tied to vampires now to avoid the rabbit hole of who was using what label. When when i say vampire. I mean a monster or spirit. Siphoning off the souls of the living and it's worth mentioning at the time. Blood was thought by many to be the vessel for the soul. People would know if they're town might have a vampire because residents would suddenly and inexplicably start coughing up blood and mucus one day. They're fine and then the next their pale week and bedridden as of all the energy drained from them overnight once people start dropping like flies time. Visit the local cemetery to do a little digging for the most part. These vampire conducted exactly how you'd imagine under the cover of darkness lit by flickering lanterns. And you can find a similar scene in any run of the mill vampire feature but not all of them were so clandestine in vermont. Hearts of suspected vampires were sometimes burned on. Blacksmith forges in the center of town with hundreds of spectators gathering to watch members of the clergy presided local doctors. The ones with the most medical expertise would assist the cremation's the afflicted either inhaled. The fumes of the burnt remains or. Were instructed to drink the ashes but in the areas of maine and massachusetts they had a different way of neutralizing the evil. The vampires bodies were simply turned over in their coffins. And that's how mercy. Lena brown's body was supposedly found when the men i opened her coffin that march base down in her crypt resting on her stomach. Maybe someone had already suspected. Lena at had gone to her crypt to flipper over before. Those men burnt her heart and liver. Maybe there were more than a few vampire hunters in town with wildly different techniques. But probably not george was so reticent to disturb his family's eternal rest that he most likely only let it happened once and lena probably didn't try out a new resting position tonight see new england's version of vampires weren't springing from the ground and walking on earth like dracula. They were arguably much.

"In january eighteen ninety two exeter's population is less than a thousand down for more than twenty five hundred a few decades earlier while the vanderbilt are putting their finishing touches on their marble mansion. Twenty miles away in exeter. There are so many abandoned farms that the united states government is preparing to seize them and burn them to the ground and the town's residents might want a few fires at this point see. It's a bitterly cold winter when one exeter family of self proclaimed swamp yankees is watching their youngest daughter die. Her name's lena brown but she goes by. Lina and her body is being ravaged by disease a few weeks earlier. She was absolutely fine but her sickness is what one doctor calls the galloping kind as in in a hurry to end her life and tonight her father george is listening to that. Same doctor dr harold. Metcalf tell him that there's nothing he can do for lena. The doc says listen. The hard reality is she's going to ride this cough and chill and night sweat to an early great. And that's that as far as anyone can tell. This metcalf guy doesn't even give lena medication to soothe the pain in her lungs. He just leaves not long. After in january eighteen ninety two lena passes away at just nineteen years old. Her obituary in the providence journal reads quote miss selina. Brown died sunday morning and quote. And that's basically it. Her body doesn't even get buried. The soil has frozen over so nobody can dig a grave. The browns just place her in a coffin hammer the top on with some nails and lock her in a stone crypt located on the family cemetery. They know they'll come back in the springtime when it's warm and give her a proper burial in the family cemetery right next to her. Recently deceased mother and sister. Uc tragedy was a new experience for the brown family in eighteen. Eighty three nine years earlier. The same sickness that took lena's life claimed her mother mary eliza brown. Mary didn't have the galloping kind. Like lena had so death was more drawn out but her symptoms were the same the cough the fever chills. Night sweats the agonizing pain less than year. after lena's mother passed lena's older sister mary. Olive died as well after fighting a long bout of the same disease. Her obituary read quote. The last few hours she lived was of great suffering yet. Her faith was firm and she was ready for the change and quote. Exeter held a funeral for mary. Olive all the townsfolk sang a hymn that. Mary selected on her deathbed called. One sweetly solemn thought beliefs are about someone begging god to be nearby as they slip over the brink of death into whatever comes next. But there's a reason that lena just a decade later receives so much less fanfare than her sister. A reason why the townsfolk weren't so keen to be in close quarters with the browns. One death is sad to is tragic but after three people start thinking that this family is infected like cursed or something they were once a family of five and now they're down to to just george and his twenty four year old son edwin and eddie will now. he's sick to. He's actually been sick for a while leading dies. He spent something like two years in colorado. His health. Hoping the western air might do him some good but it didn't. He returned to rhode island shortly after. Lena took her last breath by the end of february eighteen. Ninety two. he's counting down his final days on earth. Trying to make them as comfortable as possible. But eddie's well liked around town so he's not short on people willing to lend a hand before hospice and hospitals attending to the dying was considered a position of honor. In new england society even had a name for it watchers in addition to doling out medicine and taking care of basic needs watchers. Made sure that when somebody passed they weren't alone someone they loved was sitting by their side. Easing them through families. Even entire villages would take ships but any makes a controversial decision. He doesn't choose his father to be as watcher. he stays with his in-laws. Why will it turns out eddie. Might want to stay far far away. From the brown family farm one winter night a group of well intentioned townsfolk georgia's doorstep with a wild theory. They think the disease plaguing georgia's family is caused by one of three things to are buried underground and one is in a crypt. They're basically like what if your wife and daughters aren't dead or aren't always dead. What if they're undefeated and feeding on the living tissue and blood of your son now. They don't use the word vampire in conversation but they do suggest that george exhume his wife and two daughters to see if there's any fresh blood in their hearts if there is they'll know for sure that eddie's health is being siphoned by a loved one from beyond the grave as you can imagine this all sounds like three shades to ridiculous to george. He's surely a god fearing man and disturbing the dead probably feels like it's breaking all kinds of commandments. But at the end of the day he doesn't have another option. Medicine has failed.

I mean there are some mummified flesh here and there but certainly no blood so the men are like oops sorry for disturbing the peace and they put her back in the ground next they dig up. Mary olive she has a little more hair on her skull than they expected. There's no flesh. No blood like her mother.
