Since I’m re-watching Stargate SG1, I remembered this gem I put together years ago, found it in my archives. Mind you, this was written before the whole Ori arc, and it wasn’t written in one sitting, so it’s likely stuff is missing and some stuff sounds similar. If you got any more suggestions to add to the list, leave a comment.

Caskets that had been unearthed by the surging Missouri River. The Missouri broke a levee on July 12, 1993, and scoured the cemetery, digging a deep hole and sending caskets bobbing downstream. The flood ruined 793 of the cemetery’s 1,576 graves, and searchers never confirmed recovering about 150 of them.
