  1. Here lies John Bunn
    He was killed by a gun
    His name was not Bunn but Wood
    But Wood would not rhyme with gun

  3. Interesting! Have often walked among the tombstones in old Alabama cemeteries and wondered how the inhabitants died, and thought of how it must have been so very many years ago when their funerals were held and what it must have looked like to see all the wagons, horses, and families and friends who attended. (Many who later were buried in the same graveyards).
