The Grave of Hollie Tatnell

Hearne, Texas

Those of you who have been with me for awhile may recall back in the days when Sinbad traveled along we criss-crossed the country looking for these oddities.  I plan to do that once again now but probably to a lesser degree than Sinbad and I did.

Rather than I tell the history behind this I’ll let the sign do so

Wondering where Marlin, Texas was I looked it up and found it is only thrity-four miles northwest of Hearne.  There was a photo of Doctor Hunter.  I added it to the bottom.

We were a bit tired by this point and the only real option in Hearne to overnight was a Loves truck stop.  Truck stops are not all that good for a restful night so we drove thirty miles more to Lake Limestone.


  1. I always enjoy these curiosities that you find - they tell the story of the country in a way that the official histories do not.

  2. That's so neat! Glad her children wouldn't move her!
