Maria Elena Milagro de Hoyos, Most people have never heard of her. She was not someone important, and she never did anything of note other than die young of tuberculosis. But after her death...her doctor, Carl Tanzler, made sure he had her in his bed every night from time he paid to have her entombed, (7 yrs). The story, well documented on the internet. (see also Count Carl von Cosel).
