Visiting Bluffton, Alabama

On Friday June 24th, 2005, Hal and I took a trip out to the ghost town of Bluffton. In it’s prime in 1888, there was a population of about 8000 residents. Today there is only the Salem Baptist Church shown on the previous Page and a mobile home whose yard is used as a wrecking yard. It is sitting about where the Signal Hotel used to exist. Below are some photo’s  of headstones for some of Sara Alis Robershaw 1st husband and their Family.
