We had just a few minutes to drive around the cemetery (if you are ever in Natchez, you *have* to go to the cemetery – it has the prettiest and strangest monuments!). This time, I found two of the monuments I have been looking for:
It’s a sad story, so the link to read about it is here.
The other monument is for Catherine Linton Minor (1770-1844), “The Yellow Duchess”. Her monument is the big rectangular one on the right. Her story is here.
This monument is for Louise the Unfortunate (more about her here):
…and this one is of the “Turning Angel” – in memory of those lost in the Natchez Drug Company explosion of 1908. More about this here.
Update: It’s not in the city cemetery, but Mark just emailed me, reminding me that Natchez does have a marker for a cat at the old city hall building. The cat’s name was Tripod (because he had three legs), and his marker calls him the “city’s kitty”! A pic of the marker is right here.
