HAUNTED: An Americus Cemetery and Sumter Co. Bridge


The oldest cemetery Americus is the final resting place for the town’s first Sheriff, John Kimmey. Killed with a Bowie knife by his competition, George Robertson, for election, Kimmey managed to shoot Robertson and both died of their injuries two days later. While Kimmey has a marked grave, Robertson’s burial site is unmarked.

WRBL’s morning anchor Greg Loyd takes you to the cemetery that’s home to a modern-day ghost story, and the Sumter County bridge, where locals say something just doesn’t feel right.
