Rufus Payne "Tee Tot" Gravesite

Rufus Payne, a blues musician widely known by his nickname "Tee-Tot," taught Hank Williams his first chords in Georgiana. Payne also exposed the young Hank to blues and other African American influences that eventually helped him to successfully combine hillbilly, folk and blues into his own unique style that would eventually change the landscape of country music. Payne is buried in Lincoln Cemetery less than 3 miles from Hank's final resting spot.
