"Famous" Graves

angabel says:

Is there a tag for "famous" graves? Have any of you taken a shot of a "famous" grave, and if so, did you travel there to take a picture or do you have any "famous" graves in your local cemeteries?

Cody's Grave 1

I just added 3 (I'll add a fourth once it turns midnight if it lets me) pictures of Cody Holp's tombstone. As the description says, he went to my high school and died tragically in the Bluffton University bus accident. He was a few years behind me (his brother was in my grade) and I went to a very small school where you knew everyone. And if you weren't on personal terms with people, you knew what they were like. Cody was a nice guy, Prom King, star baseball player.

The saddest thing is that this plot was bought, I believe, for his grandparents, and they ended up burying their grandson there. Whenever we drive past the cemetery, 9 times out of 10, there is someone out there, either his mom or another relative or a high school student. Normally I dislike a bunch of "crap" being left on the tombstone, but it's quite touching here. Someone monitors it so it won't get thrown away, and there are even lights on his grave.

On another sad note, 5 students/former students were killed from my high school in this past school year. When you go to a high school with less than 100 kids per grade level, that's a tremendous loss, and so they all have greatly affected the students there.

On a completely different note, I also have some photos of "famous" administrators and Miami University professors, but they're really only famous concerning the school, and not from a tragic accident like Cody's grave unfortunately was.

William Hulbert was one of the founders of the National League in 1876. His tombstone at Graceland Cemetery in Chicago lists the teams in the league at the time of his death in 1882. Ironically, 34 years later the Cubs began playing a quarter-mile south of the cemetery.

I posted a couple of pictures here. One of Stephen F. Austin. If your from Texas, Stephen F. Austin, is known as the "Father of Texas" with his famous 300. I visited the Texas State Cemetery in Austin, and the people buried in the cemetery, are all famous in the state for various reasons. And the only way to be buried in the cemetery is to hold a high ranking office in the state, or to have someone put a motion forth for you to be buried in the cemetery.

Somebody beat me to it, but here's another shot of William Faulkner's grave. It's worth noting the bottle - fans (and college students) leave bottles of Jack Daniel's (or another whiskey) on the grave as a tribute/memorial. I used to live in Oxford, so while I made the trip to take the pictures - it wasn't a long trip.

I reside in the Nashville, TN area which has an abundance of famous names from the Country genre of music. While not a fan of Country myself I did capture a lot of graves of the famous but did so with video camera rather than in photographs. I put it on YouTube and it is two parts which includes names such as Johnny Cash, Johnny Paycheck, Tammy Wynette, Porter Wagner, Floyd Cramer, Marty Robbins and lot of others.

There is another video on my YouTube page which shows the grave of Sarah Cannon (Minnie Pearl). I also have the grave of Frank Sutton on my flickr page. Frank Sutton was the actor who played the role of Sgt. Carter in Gomer Pyle USMC.

fallingwater123 says:

Hello inetjoker,

Frank Spencer Sutton is buried in Section 12 next to the outer perimeter road in the back of the cemetery. When I say he is buried next to the road I mean that he is literally buried right next to the roadway. The family monument, however, has the name of "Spencer."

I like to divide Greenwood into two major Divisions with an older part and a newer part. The older Division are all the sections of older graves when you first come into the cemetery gate from Greenwood Avenue. The newer Division I characterize as being accessed by the lane which leads to the Corlew Mausoleum (the one with the guardian horses). Frank Sutton is on the outer perimeter road of the older division but close to that lane entering the newer division. He is toward the rear of the older Division in my characterization. Suttons grave will be on one side of the perimeter road and a wooded area will be on the other. Hope this helps.

Sgt. Carter by fallingwater123


That is his headstone but, remember, the family monument with a name legible from the roadway will be "Spencer" if memory serves me correctly. Section 12.

Tomb of Columbus by soniahhhh


The tomb of Christopher Columbus in Seville Cathedral. It's tucked away in a dark corner, so it's actually quite easy to miss amongst everything.

There is some controversy about whether the remains in the tomb are actually those of Columbus, or whether he may actually be buried in the Dominican Republic .
