After you look at all the pictures on the camera --
-- and dig up the mound of dirt with the trowel, you'll find a locked box. It needs a key, which you won't find until --
-- you get into Charlotte's bedroom.
You'll find the key to this box in the jewelry box, in the top that doesn't require a puzzle to reach. And now you can finally open that box under the dirt --
-- as soon as you solve one more puzzle, that is. Argh!! But wait, does this puzzle look familiar?
This is the same design you saw drawn on the puzzle you found under the floorboards in the parlor. It's finally time to deal with Ethel's Grave.
Now that you have the family tree you found in Jess's backpack, it's easy to find Ethel. And it's also easy to find Ethel's grave in the cemetery; it's the one with no first name and a date of death in 1933.
This is rather obscure, so I'll tell you that what you need from Ethel's grave is her date of death -- month, day, and year. (Even if you think you know, go to the cemetery and look at the actual gravestone to get Nancy to comment on it.)
Now go back to the box under the porch. Can you see what you need to do?
The numbers on the box need to be arranged into the date from Ethel's grave: first the month (as a number), then the day, and then the year. Read to the end of this hint for step-by-step directions on how to do this.
This type of puzzle requires you to think about three steps ahead, which I happen to be very bad at. I tend to flail randomly at the buttons until something works.
For example, both dates end in 1933, so you want to have both 3s at the right, and clicking on the right arrow will put them there.
However, the 9 needs to go in front of the two 3s, so you need to send the 9 in first, and then the two 3s. See?
Inside you'll find a plate that will help you open one of the coffins in the crypt.
