These Alabama headstones have intriguing backstories -

Monday, July 25, 2016

Great excitement prevails in Blocton, and many citizens have joined in the work of rescue."The Lightning GraveGrave of William Yedell CosperChildersburg City CemeteryChildersburg, ALWilliam Yedell "Bill" Cosper (1844-1919) of Childersburg was what some might call unlucky. In 1919, when he was about 75 years old, he was struck by lightning while standing on his front porch. He survived, only to be struck again sometime later. This time, the strike was fatal. Bill's family buried him in Childersburg City Cemetery but he didn't rest in peace: the headstone his family erected was struck by lightning and destroyed. After a second headstone was also demolished by a lightning strike, Bill's family gave up and left the pile of rubble to mark his grave but Bill was immortalized by a listing in Ripley's Believe It or Not! Slave's monument to former masterGrave of John GodwinGodwin Family CemeteryPhenix City, ALTypical for wealthy white men of his time, John Godwin (Oct. 17, 1798-Feb. 26, 1859) of Phenix City was a slave owner, and the story of his special bond with a talented slave is forever etched on his tombstone. Horace King was born into slavery and was sold to John Godwin. However, Godwin, a builder who recognized King's innate talent for bridge building and architecture, treated King as his partner on numerous building projects, according to the Encyclopedia of Alabama. Unlike most slaves, King married a free woman of color, he earned good wages for his work, and he earned a reputation as an outstanding builder. In his later life, he served in the Alabama House of Representatives.Numerous bridges and buildings in Alabama were built by King and his former owner Godwin before King bought his freedom and continued his work on his own. One of King's best-known projects is the double spiral staircase in the Alabama State Capitol Building. When Godwin died in 1859, it was King who erected the monument on his grave in the Godwin Family Cemetery on the family's plantation.It says: "This stone was placed here by Horace King, in lasting remembrance of the love and gratitude he felt for his lost friend and former master."The train engineer who gave allGrave of Joseph AveryOdd Fellows CemeteryGainesville, ALJoseph Avery (1826-March 22, 1862) was a railroad engineer with the Mississippi, Gainesville and Tuscaloosa Railroad who died after what was known as a heroic train run in an effort to
