Return to Pikeville in the late 1800s to discover Octavia's story and why perhaps she still walks the cemetary grounds to this day.
Since the early part of the 20th century Octavia Hatcher’s monument has watched over the city of Pikeville. Octavia’s brief marriage to prominent Pikeville businessman James Hatcher ended suddenly when she suffered an unknown illness that resulted in her being declared dead. It was an unseasonably hot spring, which called for a quick burial. But was she buried too soon? This chilling account may explain why many say her spirit walks the graveyard to this day.
