The Church Lester Grave in Pikeville , Tennessee
by Linda Nichols
Church Lester was a moonshiner in the early 1900's. He was your friend , very loyal if you didn't cross him . He was indited in a Tenn . court for the bombing ( huge mistake) murder of two little girls. The person who was supposed to be killed was the father of these little girls who just happened not to be home when this terrible act happened. He was found guilty , of course, and sentenced to die . However, before this could be carried out , he was found hung in his cell..... With his hands tied behind his back. he was laid to rest in his family cemetary and I actually have a photograph of a spirit coming OR going from his gravestone. It is strange , it is real, and it is scary.
