Lanterns and Tombstones under ancient Cedar tree

2022-05-09 - Downtown Columbia, KY - Photo by Linda Waggener,
Lanterns and Tombstones Tour guides took the crowd to the plot of J. W. Jackman and wife and daughter, under the ancient cedar tree in the middle of the Columbia Cemetery. His relationship to the horse industry was that he was a leather worker in a saddlery. He often made show pieces for county fair and Jackman saddles we're prized.

Mary Damron Neat, successful horse show participant who was known for her distinct attire, rode her horse, Jordan Peacock, with a brand new side saddle made by Jackman. She needed it adjusted before the event began and called for a groom to help. She found herself docked in points for that by the judges and lost the competition.

Everyone steered clear of the tree trunk as it had what looked like a Poison Ivy vine growing up it.
