Grave of a Gypsy Queen

Elizabeth Harrison was the queen of a tribe of Romany Gypsies when she died in 1895. The undistinguished obelisk that marks her grave hardly does justice to her colorful heritage.

Much larger grave marker than the previous photo indicates. Despite the rain, and the fact that we were looking for a smaller stone....we found the Grave of a Gypsy Queen!

The Gypsy queen grave is within a few hundred feet of that Confederate soldier memorial. Also, her sons are buried next to her, but where's her husband? [Johnny, 08/26/2014]
