My Grandfather,Tom Rogers was a security guard in tower number one for over 30 yeads.He also owned the convient store dirctly accross the street from
the main gate As a youg boy in the 60s I visited the prison freqently and a trustee was assigned to me to make sure I did not get in troble. The womens
state prison was down the road near the swimming pool. I remenber the chain gangs,the prisoners working the farms and the blood hound kennels. It
was Cool Hand Luke in real life.What an experience
for a young lad.

The prison mentioned here was known as "Piss Ant Hill" and was the burial place for most unclaimed inmates who died there. It was rumored that many earlier inmates were buried underneath the large concrete slab behind the old mess hall because their deaths were questionable and that they were listed as escapees. In the first movie "Longest Yard" the cemetary is used as in a scene where a inmate was murdered by another inmate. If there is a list of these names of buried inmates, where can it be located ?
