Funny tombstone inscriptions.

29 posts in this topic

Graveyard Humor

Be careful what you inscribe on a tombstone. Here are some funny ones!

Anna Wallace

The children of Israel wanted bread

And the Lord sent them manna,

Old clerk Wallace wanted a wife,

And the Devil sent him Anna.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sir John Strange

Here lies an honest lawyer,

And that is Strange.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sacred to the memory of

my husband John Barnes

who died January 3, 1803

His comely young widow, aged 23, has

many qualifications of a good wife, and

yearns to be comforted.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here lies an Atheist

All dressed up

And no place to go.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ann Mann

Here lies Ann Mann,

Who lived an old maid

But died an old Mann.

Dec. 8, 1767

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Russell J. Larsen buried in Logan, Ut.

Two things I love most,

good horses and beautiful women,

And when I die I hope they tan this old hide of mine

and make it into a ladies riding saddle,

So I can rest in peace

between the two things I love

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In Memory of Beza Wood

Departed this life

Nov. 2, 1837

Aged 45 yrs.

Here lies one Wood

Enclosed in wood

One Wood

Within another.

The outer wood

Is very good:

We cannot praise

The other.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When the great judgement day arrives

and Joshua Fenton Newton does not emerge from this hole,

you will know that someone made a mistake

and buried me in the wrong hole.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

From La Pointe, Wis.

To the Memory of Abraham Beaulieu

Born 15 September 1822

Accidentally shot 4th April 1844

As a mark of affection from his brother.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

From Burlington Vt.

She lived with her husband fifty years

And died in the confident hope of a better life.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here lies my wife:

Here let her lie!

Now she's at rest

And so am I.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here Lies Mary Smith

Silent At Last

Playing with names in a Ruidoso, New Mexico, cemetery:

Here lies

Johnny Yeast

Pardon me

For not rising.

Memory of an accident in a Uniontown, Pennsylvania cemetery:

Here lies the body

of Jonathan Blake

Stepped on the gas

Instead of the brake.

In a Silver City, Nevada, cemetery:

Here lays Butch,

We planted him raw.

He was quick on the trigger,

But slow on the draw.

Lester Moore was a Wells, Fargo Co. station agent for Naco, Arizona in the cowboy days of the 1880's. He's buried in the Boot Hill Cemetery in Tombstone, Arizona:

Here lies Lester Moore

Four slugs from a .44

No Les No More.

In a Georgia cemetery:

"I told you I was sick!"

On Margaret Daniels grave at Hollywood Cemetery Richmond, Virginia:

She always said her feet were killing her

but nobody believed her.

In a cemetery in Hartscombe, England:

On the 22nd of June

- Jonathan Fiddle -

Went out of tune.

Anna Hopewell's grave in Enosburg Falls, Vermont has an epitaph that sounds like something from a Three Stooges movie:

Here lies the body of our Anna

Done to death by a banana

It wasn't the fruit that laid her low

But the skin of the thing that made her go.

The grave of Ellen Shannon in Girard, Pennsylvania is almost a consumer tip:

Who was fatally burned

March 21, 1870

by the explosion of a lamp

filled with "R.E. Danforth's

Non-Explosive Burning Fluid"

Oops! Harry Edsel Smith of Albany, New York:

Born 1903--Died 1942

Looked up the elevator shaft to see if

the car was on the way down. It was.
