Witch's Grave

Enter Glenwood Cemetery at the fountain, take a right ,and a large marker points to the grave. About 50 feet from the witch's grave is the grave of Willie Morris, who wrote the book about her. Interestingly his gravestone is sheared off on one side.

This is a beautiful cemetery in its own right. Many a mason and Confederate soldier are buried here.

The Witch's Grave sign is missing, but found the grave quite easily. As you enter, veer right, then at the fountain again veer right. You will see a post with a flower on it. Walk about 20 feet straight ahead and you will come to the grave.

The post with the flower [artificial, temporary] is where the sign used to be.

Disappointing. The marker was made in 1995 (and then smashed?) and the witch's name isn't listed anywhere. We walked around like fools for 15 minutes before seeing the clearly marked "Witches Grave" (sic) road sign.

When entering the Glenwood Cemetery's main entrance, veer right, and a green sign on the left says "Witch's grave."
