The Natchez City Cemetery in Adams County, Mississippi, is home to several unusual tombstones. There is one called the “Turning Angel”, which is a statue of an angel that’s carved such a way so as to form an optical illusion. When approaching the statue from the correct angle, the angel appears to turn towards the visitor. There is also a large three-tier tombstone whose rather large size is accounted for by the fact that there is rocking chair inside—as was the wish of Rufus E. Case, whose remains lie besides his trustworthy chair. However, it’s the tomb of Florence Irene Ford that has the most touching backstory.
