Unmarked graves

Classification: Query
I'm sure most people researching their ancestry have come across unmarked graves. Has anyone tried to add a headstone or marker?

I have inquired at cemeteries about the procedure and the first question is always; "Do you have the deed?". In most of my cases the plots were purchased over 100 years ago and any physical deed is long since lost.

Does anyone know if there is a process for this? I'm not looking to spend a huge amount of money and hiring a Probate Lawyer to go through 4 generations would be excessive.

The laws covering this probably differ from state to state. I live in Massachusetts. Any help would be appreciated
