The Black Widow Story

There was a lady from Smith County that moved to Hazel Green, AL where she proceeded
to "lose" four husbands (she had already lost two) via mysterious means. I was thinking she was also called
the "Bell Witch". Instead, she was called "The Black Widow". Perhaps this was the woman that Bobby West
was referring to. Anyway, I went to the Huntsville library today where I found a number of old newspaper
articles about her. I am attaching one of the articles with a cemetery photo showing the graves of her
husbands. This lady's father, Adam Dale, is credited with founding the town of Liberty, TN.
