I was unfamiliar with this claim before this posting, so I've made an effort to identify the sources for the presentation in the video. As closely as I am able to discover, they are:

Don Estes, a local Natchez historian
Quote:
and former director of the Natchez City Cemetery, recently published his first book containing 118 of the most compelling stories from within the gates of “the south’s most interesting cemetery.”
https://www.natchezdemocrat.com/2009...y-in-new-book/

If you read the article you discover that Mr. Estes' method of historical research is "collecting stories."

and

Paula Westbrook, described as "a local paranormal expert."

So, we have it on the authority of a story collector and a woman who claims expertise in the transcending of natural law. Might I suggest that in such circumstances, alarms should go off, lights should go on, and we should suspend judgment on this claim until someone with more credible credentials examines the evidence? And that is assuming that there is some evidence, I came across none in my search.
