Thomas Jefferson Fish
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1837
Death: 1863

When Mr Fish lost his family suddenly to illness, his grief was overwhelming. After placing their bodies in the vault, he brought in his favorite rocking chair. He then proceeded to brick himself up inside the vault, and was never seen again.
This has become a Georgia ghost story. Legend has it that when someone knocks on the door and asks, "What are you doing, Mr. Fish?" Mr Fish replies, "Nothing at all."
