F. Scott Fitzgerald once said of Rockville, where his grandparents lived, "I belong here, where everything is civilized ... and polite. And I wouldn't mind if in a few years Zelda and I could snuggle up together under a stone in some old graveyard here. That is really a happy thought and not melancholy at all."
Some important person representing the Catholic church deemed Fitzgerald to be unworthy of consecrated ground; consequently he was buried in the secular Rockville Union Cemetery. In 1948 his widow died in a fire that destroyed the asylum she was in; she was buried with her husband.
In 1975, after a successful petition by their daughter Scottie, they were disinterred and, with their tombstone, moved to sacred ground at St. Mary's Cemetery, pictured below.
Zelda Sayre, a southern belle, came from a prominent Montgomery, Alabama, family. A cenotaph in the Sayre family plot in Montgomery's Oakwood Cemetery memorializes Scott and Zelda as well as their daughter. (I brought image below up on Internet, then photographed it.)
Trivia #1: Nathaniel West, author of The Day of the Locust and Miss Lonelyhearts, and his wife Eileen, were killed in a car crash while driving to Fitzgerald's funeral.
Trivia #2: Hank Williams, killed apparently by a heart attack at 29, is also buried at Oakwood Cemetery in Montgomery. It's amazing that at that age he'd already written so many great songs.
