Joe Cain's Grave

The grave of Joe Cain is located just inside the entrance of Church Street Graveyard. Every year during Mardi Gras, the Merry Widows, a group of women dressed in black, visit his grave and decorate it with trinkets. The Sunday before Mardi Gras is celebrated as "Joe Cain Day" in Mobile.
