Inscription and Notes:
The last of the famous Western bandits.
Bill Miner is believed to actually be buried
in lot 18 and was marked in that lot in the late 1990s.
Bill Miner (1843-Sep 2, 1914) (East J, 7, 1) was a notorious stagecoach and
train robber. The books, The Grey Fox and Bill Miner--Stagecoach and
Train Robber, describe his life. He died in the State Prison on state route
22 west of Milledgeville from which he had escaped several times. He actually
is not buried under this marker but rather in a recently (about 1999) marked grave--no. 6 in lot
18, to the east.
