The Source:

J. Theodore Bent :
"The Cyclades- or Life among the insular Greeks"
London, 1885

The Cases:

This is what Theodore Bent tells us:

"Thanks to our host, I was able to understand all she told us about vampires and bugbears. She affirmed that she herself had heard the bones of a young woman rattle in the grave, and that, owing to the general dread, the priest had been persuaded to open the grave, and lo ! they had found the body undissolved a clear proof of its ghostly properties. So they had cut it into shreds and burnt it. This happened only a few months before our visit."

The Date:

Mr. Bent's case must have taken place in or shortly before 1884.

The Place:

Andros is a Greek island that can be found somewhere East of Athens.

Possible Follow-Up:

There is the book by James Theodore Bent which may or may not offer further information...
