On a low hill above Highway 118 outside of Carbon Hill, Alabama is the Chickasaw Cemetery. In this cemetery there is a style of tent cover unlike any I have seen. The head and footstones are hipped low to the ground. The hips seem to serve as supports to the sheets of the tent. There are quite a few other hipped headstones in the cemetery, but their tent sheets are gone.
