04: Islands of Michigan, Part 2: High Island and the House of Virgins

High Island is an island in Lake Michigan and is part of the Beaver Island archipelago. It was the home of a timber-cutting and truck farm operation from 1912-1927 ran by the House of David. And... it is presumably still filled with many unmarked graves.

They were never marked - these people were buried without ceremony, and in dishonor, for the humiliating and repeatable crime of...wait for it... dying.
