The Haunting of John Wilkes’ Grave 2

J John Wilkes Booth’s grave seems a likely top attraction for Baltimore’s Green Mount Cemetery.  The staff is happy to mark the location on a map, and that took us to the family plot, but even so, there was no finding J.W.  What we found was more interesting–pennies.  I noticed a collection on an unmarked stone at the corner of the plot.  More balanced amongst the raised “Booth” lettering on a central stone.  The more we looked, the more pennies we found. Where do they come from…and why?  It’s not hard to guess, but can anyone know for certain?
