The Tragedy of Octavia Hatcher

Spread the love

On May 2, 1891, Octavia Hatcher of Pikeville, Kentucky, died from a strange, new illness.

Well, no she didn’t, but nobody knew that at the time.

You see, that illness caused her to go into a coma so deep that doctors at the time assumed she was dead and pronounced her so. Then she was buried in a cemetery on a hill above Pikeville.

That is when the tragedy of this story begins.
