Cemetery Stroll

Tuesday, November 3, 2009

There are many Huntsvillians buried in Maple Hill Cemetery. A couple weeks ago the Huntsville Pilgrimage Association hosted a cemetery stroll. People dressed up in period clothing and told stories of the people buried in the cemetery.

Tallulah Bankhead was an actress during the 1930's and 1940's. Her mother is buried in Maple Hill.

Mollie Teal was a popular "Madam" who donated her establishment to be used as a hospital.

Lily Flagg was a Jersey milk cow that won the blue ribbon at the 1892 World Fair in Chicago. Her owner was so proud that he honored his cow with a party in 1892.

LeRoy Pope (left) was the "Father of Huntsville." John Williams Walker (right) was Pope's lawyer and President of the convention that framed the Alabama Constitution in 1819.
