|THANKS TO A FRIEND FOR THESE 2 PICTURES OF THE COFFIN
|These images above are of the grave of Cora Lee Wilson. Cora Lee was a socialite during the 1880's and died
from a fever while visiting friends in East Texas. The 2 pictures on the top show the rather large hole in her
tomb where you can see her wrought iron casket. Legend has it that despite numerous attempts to block the
hole, another hole is once again knocked away by Cora's restless spirit.
Recently, Cora Lee's grave has been put into the local spotlight. After a strong storm that blew through the
area on November 12, the deteriorated condition of Cora Lee's grave was focused on by our local television
and newspaper. On November 19 and 20, work had begun to try and permanently seal the large hole on the
tomb. The links to both stories are as follows:
A big thanks goes out to Paul Pickett for his latest pictures of Cora's grave, much clearer and possibly the
latest pictures we may see of her coffin. Unless she becomes restless from all this media attention and
knocks the bricks free again.
