Huddie William "Lead Belly" Ledbetter
[Add A Photo]
This is the 2nd tombstone on Lead Belly's grave near Mooringsport, in Caddo Parish, Louisiana. It was there from the late 1960s until the early 1990s. The first tombstone, now lost to time, was a simple cast concrete marker, according to poet Allan Ginsberg. The latest tombstone contains several errors and his grave actually faces away from it, so if you stand BEHIND the current stone you are actually standing on Lead Belly's grave.
