Sorry, The Lost Arm of F. Stewart is permanently closed.

In the back corner of the quiet Paradise Cemetery in Paradise, Texas, is a gravestone that simply reads “Lost Arm of F. Stewart-Sept. 27, 1910.” No other gravestones nearby indicate where the rest of Stewart’s body is buried. Very little is actually known about why the arm is buried under the headstone, why it exists, or if anything at all is buried at the site.
