Haunting, and Paranormal Activities
“Glenwood Cemetery, located in Yazoo City, dates back to at least 1856. A stone marker notes the cemetery property was given to the city by Capt. John Willis and his wife Annie. A simple marker is placed before a large plot near the creek where the bodies of many Confederate soldiers are buried. An early newspaper article says they died in the Civil War hospital located on South Main Street. Located not far from the fountain in Glenwood is a grave surrounded by chain links. This is known as “The Witch’s Grave.” The legend of the Witch that burned Yazoo City in 1904 became famous in a book written by Willie Morris. Morris’ grave is located 13 steps south of the Witch’s grave.” Source Visit Yazoo City
Willie Morris’ novel Good ole Boys made the witch famous and he’s buried in the cemetery.
