Flowers left for Joc-O-Sot
Joc-O-Sot was a tribe leader who fought in the Black Hawk war against the U.S. in 1830. At that time, he sustained a gunshot wound, but survived.After the war, in an effort to earn money for his tribe, Joc-O-Sot later joined a vaudeville troupe in Cleveland. During his theatre group's tour of England, he fell ill as a result of complications from his gunshot wound from over ten years before. His illness caused him to return to Cleveland.Legend states that Joc-O-Sot knew he was dying and tried to return to his native land in Minnesota so to that he could die and be buried next to his ancestors.He never made it out of Cleveland, and died within the Warehouse District. He is buried at this grave in Erie Street Cemetery.Joc-O-Sot's spirit never rested, they say. He still wanders the cemetery, bitter over having been buried here instead of his native land.In anger, Joc-O-Sot's spirit shattered his original tombstone. If he is having a particularly bad day, Joc-O-Sot also haunts the nearby Cleveland Indians Baseball Stadium
