Sam Chatmon update
Sanders Garden Memorial Cemetery, Hollandale, Mississippi
Thanks to the Mississippi Blues Foundation, the Indianola Blues Society, Mortimer Funeral Home, and all the other generous contributors who made this project possible. The bench will be erected forthwith! And a formal dedication will follow later this year.
Special thanks to Euphus Ruth and Libby Rae Watson (in photo w/ guitar) who did the lion's share of work on this project. Libby has now performed at his funeral in February 1983, his headstone dedication in March 1998, and the installation of his new beveled headstone on August 10, 2015--"Sitting on Top of the World."
