TALLAHASSEE’S WITCH GRAVE A century old legend surrounds a curious tomb in Tallahassee’s old City Cemetery. As I entered the iron gates of the cemetery my attention was captured by an ornate, towering obelisk marking a curious tomb. It’s easy to get the feeling that this unusual grave magnetically beckons visitors to come closer. This is the most visited grave in the entire cemetery, mainly due to a legend about how it’s the final resting place for a witch named “Bessie.”

Joan Wytte, b.1775, d.1813, age 38. She was a witch, renowned for her clairvoyant abilities but in her 20's, developed tooth decay & a painful abscess. It made her aggressive and impatient; she used to shout at her clients. Locals thought she had become posessed by the devil. Was imprisoned for causing grievous bodily harm & found to be of unsound mind. Died of pneumonia; her body was used as a medical specimen; then passed to the Museum of Witchcraft, Cornwall. Remains buried 1998.

I posted these in another thread but figured I stick them in the "official" stones thread. These are mine for this year. I made two more witch stones to go with the one I already had. All three hags will now have their own grave marker.Made this one from some scrap piecesThis one isn't really a gravestone but will hold a jack o lantern in the front yard set.
