Country Musician. Patsy Cline had participated in a benefit concert in Kansas City for the family of a disc jockey ("Cactus" Jack Call) who had died in a car accident. Ramsey (Randy) Hughes, Patsy Cline, Hawkshaw Hawkins, and Cowboy (Lloyd) Copas, were all in Hughes Piper Comanche, when it crashed just west of Camden, TN in a hollow along a ridge line in a heavily wooded area known as Fatty Bottom, near a fire tower off Mule Barn Rd. in Sandy Point, about 5 miles west of the Tennessee River. The plane had left Kansas City about 1:30pm. The reported time of the crash varies sometime between 6:20pm and 7:00pm, March 5, 1963. Patsy's watch was reportedly stopped at 6:20pm. Ironically, Jack Anglin was killed in an auto accident on the way to Patsy Cline's funeral. Jack Anglin, Hawkshaw Hawkins, and Ramsey (Randy) Hughes, are also buried in this same cemetery.
