Paul Lynde's Grave

Take the southernmost entrance (there are two) -- it's the 4th row on the right -- four headstones in.

Paul Lynde was primarily known for his role as Uncle Arthur on Bewitched in the 1960s. The grave marker indicates he was born in 1927, but my research says that he was born in 1926. Amity is seven miles northeast of Mount Vernon, Mr. Lynde's hometown.

Let's not forget Paul's memorable warbling of "Kids" in the film Bye Bye Birdie, and his years of wisecracks as center square of the Hollywood Squares.
