THEIR CHILDREN SLEEP AROUND

The towering gothic John Wesley and Catherine Hunt monument in the Lexington Cemetery at Lexington, Kentucky, is the centerpiece of the family plot. A circle of Hunt family members’ gravestones surround the main monument. The epitaph on the main monument, “THEIR CHILDREN SLEEP AROUND,” indicates those in the circle are the children of John Wesley and Catherine Hunt—well, unless there is a hidden message in those words!
