In southeastern Alabama, there was a friendly cotton farmer who moved down south from Virginia way back in the 1840’s. This cotton farmer loved having barbeques, throwing parties, racing horses and inviting all the neighbors to join in on the fun. He partied on right up until his death.

He wanted to continue partying in his afterlife, so he built a brick tomb that was large enough to fit his bed inside. He also requested that he be buried in his square dancing outfit and his dancing shoes. He built a wooden shelter over his tomb to help keep it protected from the elements.

There have been reports of fiddle music and dust flying up as if someone was square dancing around the now gone old wooden shelter. Witnesses say they believe it’s the spirit of the partying old cotton farmer still promenading in the afterlife.
