GUEST,truckerdave Robert Johnson's Grave (1911-1938) (11) RE: Robert Johnsons Grave 19 Aug 01

Yeah, i saw an article in a local paper(MS) a few months ago where some old lady remembered watching him being buried and showed them where the grave was. Completely different location from where it was supposed to have been. Funny thing was, this old lady probably knew all along. No one ever asked, i guess. I lived in black rural neighborhood in Mississippi some years ago. Got acquainted with some elderly neighbors and asked them all out of curiousity if they had ever heard of or seen Robert Johnson play. They had no idea who i was talking about. Never heard of him.
