If I remember correctly, this section is next to
to the Bell Witch section, with the porch step 

I had assumed that they found a flat stone shaped 
roughly like the top of a treasure box, which Weer 
then used as a tombstone when he buried Lois in 
the hole they dug.  

Mantis presciently disagrees:

The fact that earlier, Lois said that she wasn't 
planning on digging up any graves takes on added 
significance in either case, whether they 
discover a coffin or whether Weer kills her.
