We are now entering the oldest cemetery in Tallahassee, Florida called the Old City Cemetery and I am gonna show you a mysterious witch grave. I am Praveen Mohan and here is a 12 feet tall obelisk of Bessie, a witch who died when she was just 23 years old. This happened more than a century ago in 1889, and her full name was Elizabeth Budd Graham.
So what is so strange about this monument? To begin with, this grave and the inscription face west, and if you look around all the other graves face east because that is the accepted Christian custom. And this tombstone is the tallest and most ornate and made of 15 tons of French granite. And legend has it that anyone who tries to have a taller structure in this cemetery cannot succeed. A few families have tried to build more elaborate monuments and they were desecrated a few days later.
Before getting to the ghost stories, people have seen actual witches performing ceremonies at night, this is not a rumor but it really happens. On full moon and new moon nights, people who drive by still see a group of witches standing around this obelisk with candles. Ghost stories include seeing a young woman weeping and sobbing right here. And if you visit this grave, Bessie will show up in your dreams that very night. Another story says that a new offering is made to her every day for all these years. This may be true, because you can see 2 quarters and 2 dimes neatly placed here. And you’ll see a lot of shells put in to this granite vase as offerings. Legend also has it that if you look into this vase, you will see the reflection of a dark soul looking straight into your eyes.
One weird thing that I found while taking still pictures – my flash was always reflected on this side of the tombstone. I tried several times but just couldn’t get rid of it. Is it because of some strange energy or do I just suck at taking pictures?
So why did she die at such a young age? Heart disease? She’s too young for that, but locals think that she was slow poisoned by a close relative and she had a long, painful death which is why her soul has not rested in peace all these years.
Most people believe that she was loved by everyone before she died and the rumors started after her death. But if you look at this epitaph, we can understand that she was hated by many and she could have even been poisoned by a relative.
Why do I say this? This epitaph engraved by her husband is originally from a poem called Lenore written by Edgar Allen Poe when his wife passed away at the age of 24.
“Ah! Broken is the golden bowl. The spirit flown forever! Let the bell toll! A saintly soul
Floats on the Stygian River; Come let the burial rite be read | The funeral song be sung;
An anthem for the queenliest dead| That died so young |A dirge for her the doubly dead
In that she died so young.”
And this has inspired people to give a lot of evil meanings – for example, some argue that the queenliest dead means that Bessie was the queen of the dead. But you can toss them out unless you want to believe that Poe’s wife herself was a witch. The real meaning is hidden in the immediately following lines of the Poem, which the husband has cleverly left out.
“Wretches! ye loved her for her wealth and hated her for her pride
“And when she fell in feeble health, ye blessed her–that she died!
You can see how, the people around her probably pretended to love her for her wealth and secretly hated her for her pride. And when she fell ill, they wanted her to die. What’s more interesting, Poe’s wife Virginia also claimed in her deathbed, that a woman named Ellet poisoned her. The real meaning of the inscription is clear: People hated Bessie and spread rumors about her even when she was alive. And sadly, these rumors are still alive after 129 years, and even modern day witches believe them.
So, whether you believe in ghosts or not, there is something more evil around us – hateful and wicked people. At least this is what she told me in my dreams last night.

The Pilgrim Jubilee Singers – Church Songs DVD Release Date: Dec 13, 2005
Several years ago MALACO started what is called – 601 Music series. Essentially, MALACO would take the best recordings from a particular artist in their camp and issue a compilation CD. For fans of gospel quartet music, the acquisition of these CD’s was the best way to have in your collection some of the recordings of your favorite gospel singer, without having to purchase different recordings. MALACO has done the same thing with videos from artists in their camp. One of the video is The Pilgrim Jubilees’ Church Songs. This 601 Music video was released on December 23, 2005. So this month we review The Pilgrim Jubilees’ Church Songs. There are 10 clips on this video. The songs on the video are “Bless Your House,” “Church Song,” “Life Evening Sun,” “Too Close’” “Safety of Your Soul,” “God’s Been Good To Me,” “My Christian Journey,” “I Know It Was The Blood,” “No Grave Can Hold Me Down,” and “I Love You.” The video takes you from The Pilgrim Jubilees’ Live From Jackson, Mississippi, which was released in 1990, to Live in Birmingham and A Night to Remember. You will also find a clip from the video Together As One 150 Years. The project is vintage Jubes. One disappointment is that the song “Church Song” is the short version. Don’t look for any surprises from the Jubes. Clearly, MALACO decided to be safe and just take the various video clips just as they are and package it as Church Songs. You will see Bo Bo Harris, of The Fantastic Violinaries on drum on the “Bless Your House” and “I Love You” clips. Also, the Late Roger Bryant, of The Jackson Southernaires, joins the Jubes on “My Christian Journey.” If you are looking for a good video that captures the essence of The Pilgrim Jubilees, then you will want to add this video to your collection. Unfortunately, you will not find any interviews of his video. You will not find any credits at the end of the video. You will not find any written information about the performances on the video. What you will find is 52 minutes and 45 seconds of good old fashion gospel quartet music that is appealing to both the ears and eyes.

Welcome to Famous Grave Tours. Thanks for joining me as I visit the cemeteries, grave sites, memorials and final resting places of the famous (and sometimes infamous) people who have touched our lives. From movie stars to world leaders, from those whose died before their time, to those who lived to be centenarians–they may be gone, but they’re not forgotten.
In this video grave tour, I visit the grave sites of the famous people buried at the Coachella Valley Cemetery in Coachella, California including movie director Frank Capra, singer-songwriter Alan O’Day, aviation pioneer Jackie Cochran, playwright John William Van Druten and other notables. Grave sites are very difficult to locate here, so plan on spending some time looking. I had a three hour cemetery walk here, the other day, searching for these graves.
