NO TRESPASSING SAYS COURT
Decision as to Cemetery From Darl
ington County- New Trial Was Or
"It shocks and outrages the feel
ings, and amuses the Indignation of
every right minded person In n Chris
tian country that the resting place of
tho dead should he Interfered with,
and the place set apart for ihi.; pur
pose converted into arable hind,
plowed over and cultivated and wiped
out ami obliterated as a cemetery."
This statement is contained in i de
cision by Associate Justice Watts and
concurred In by all justices of the su
preme court in reversing tin Dar
lington Bounty court In the case of
Ellas Kelly and B. J. Kelly against
John Tiner. The plaintiffs are seek
ing an Injunction to keep Tiner front
trespassing on a cemetery. Judge
I Shlpp sustained a demurrer to I no
complaint. Tho supreme court in its
decision reverses Judge Shipp's rul
The opinion in the case is as fol
"This is a suit lor permanent in
junction. His honor. Judge Qhlpp,
sustained the demurrer to ihe com
plaint interposed by the defendants,
and for a proper understanding of the
j case It will be necessary that the
Complaint, demurrer and order of
Judge Shipp and the exceptions bo re
1 ported with the ease. He allowed an
amendment to the complaint on mo
tion of plaintiffs. The exceptions al
lege error In his decision, lie based
his order sustaining the demurrer on
the ground 'the complaint did not
state facts sufficient to constitute a
cause of action, because it appears
upon the face of the complaint that
there is no allegation of peculiar and
special damages sustained by the
plaintiffs which would entitle them to
Injunctivo relief.' Did the complaint
stale a cause of action boforo the
amendment or afterwards? \Vo think
so. The plaintiffs allege that they are
grandsons and heirs at law of Jacob
Kelly, and they allege that Jacob
Kelly, during his life time set apart
and dedicated for the use of the pub
lic two acres of land as a graveyard
for the burial of the dead, and that
it has been used as such for NO or 90
years, and during all that time known
as the 'Kelly cemetery,' and during
thai time parties having dead buried
there have kept up the graves by
cleaning off the same and by fencing
the same. That Ihe right to use this
property as a graveyard has never
been questioned for over f>0 years.
That the plaintiffs' parents. grnnd
parents, gront-grnndpnrenta and other
kindred are buried there and < nch of
the plaintiffs have children buried
there, and expect to he burled there
themselves, and their descendants x
pect to he buried there. That the
defendant is trespassing upon and de
stroying the wire, shrubbery, trees,
etc.. and making it until for the pur
pose it was set apart and psod for,
and intends to continue his deprada
tlons until the graveyard is made a
cotton patch. We think the plaintiffs
allege sulllclency peculiar and special
damages to entitle them to Injunction.
They allege that they have kindred
buried thero, children, parents and
other ancestors. The allegations show
they are interested in the graveyard
as a whole and particularly in the
plat where their dead lie.
"I do not know of anything that
' would disturl> anil arouse the feedings
of a properly constituted person more
than the intentionl trespass and vio
lation of the graves of their dead. It
shocks and outrages the feelings, ami
arouses the indignation of every right
minded person in a Christian country,
that the resting place of the dead
should be interfered with. and the
place set apart for this purpose con
verted into arable land, plowed over
and cultivated and wiped out and ob
literated as a cemetery. I not only
think when a graveyard is set apart
for tho use of the public that those
who have Kindred buried there can
maintain a suit for any unlawful In
terferences and trespass, hill I ;hi.il<
any one who has mend buried there
can Inlorfcr and allege peculiar and
special damages. These plaintiffs coin*
plain on behalf of themselves and on
the behalf of tlx1 public in general,
who have dead buried there. Where
it is Impractical to bring all the parlies
before the court, by reason of num
bers, one or more can complain on
behalf of themselves and such others
as may come in. Judge Shipp based
his der ision on the principles laid
down in Steamboat Co. vs. Railroad
Co., 10 s. c. page 827; Thront I vs.
Mining Co., i'.i S. ('. page 131; Unit
7.0gor vs. Kail road Co., 54 3. C, page
242, and other caes affirming that
principle An examination of these
authorities will show that where the
public generally sustains injury, that
the party complalmng must show
some special or peculiar damage to
"Ill the case at bar the paintiffs
show this. They complain that their
dead burled In n graveyard, set apart
for that purpose for over 80 years,
are being disturbed and their rights
invaded by an unlawful attempt on
the part of the dofendent to take pos
session of the land occupied by their
<lcad. and to tear down and eradicate
all evidenco of their resting place,
and to plant tho lands In crops. Not
only to disturb their dead, but the
dead of othors burled in the same
graveyard. The very thought of the
unlawful Intermeddling with the rest
ing place of the dead Is abhrooent to
the feelings of any one and this, In
I my opinion, Is sufficient to show spe
cial and peculiar damnges to the
I plaintiffs. The law and Christianity
devolve upon persons the duty to put
away their dead, and gives them the
right to protect the resting place of
their dead from the wnnton and wil
ful depredations of strangers. 'If
one has been permitted to hurry his
dead In a cemetery by the express or
Implied consent of those In proper
control of it. he acquire such pos
session in the spot of ground In which
the bodies are hurled, as will entitle
him to maintain an action of trespass
I "oflare clausuni fregit" against the
owners of the fee or strangers, who
withotu his coasent. negligently or
wantonly disturb it.' Davidson vb.
Reed, 53 Aincriean Reports, Gl3. in
the same ease we find: 'One who lias
dedicated land to the public for burial
purposes, the dedication having been
nccoptcd, may be prohibited from
defacing or meddling with the graves
thereon, at the suit of any one having
relatives or friends burled there.'
in the case of Davidson vs Reed, r.i;
American Reports, page 32, we find,
'thai the public accepted and used
the land for the purpose for which
it was designated by the owner is
also beyond dispute. It has been
suggested that the bill can not be
maintained in the name of the two
complainants. The complainants were
residents of the neighborhood; they
bad friends hurled in the burying
ground and were thus interested in
preserving, for themselves and the
public, the burying ground s it had
been established, and we are of the
opinion that they had the right to sue
in behalf of themselves and others
having a like interest. The bill was
brought In, and In our judgment, prop
erly, for the protection of the rights
of the eople in that particular local
ity, and we perceive no reason why
it may not be maintained In the names
of a part for the benefit of all, as
well as if all directly interested had
joined in the bill.'
"In the case at bar the plaintiffs
have a general interest as citizens of
the community In which the cemetery
is located, and have a special and pe
culiar Interest because their parents,
children and grandparents are. buried
there. We think the circuit judge was
clearly in error. The other point in
volved here is decided In ex parte
