These are some pics of a 2 ton granite ball that rotates on top of it's base for some unknown reason in a cemetary in Sullivan, IL. It broke free from it's base a couple of years after it was erected, and very slowly revolves- The name Johnson was originally straight across the ball- In the 1940's they used a crane and recemented it in its original position. After about 2 years. it broke free again and started rotating again- If you notice the chip in one of the photos. that it where it broke free the 2nd time- The 1st pic I took in 1977 the rest in 2004- It seems to follow the same general path, but I have observed the name Johnson completely under the ball, etc. Makes you wonder ??
BTW, it is still doing the same thing !!
