William Rufus DeVane King
Cause of Death Age Burial Location Vice President Grave #
Tuberculosis
67
Selma, Alabama
38th in my collection




Surrounded by weeping willow trees is the
final resting place of the 13th vice president,
William Rufus DeVane King.










In addition to King's grave, I visited the
burial sites of two other vice presidents on
this trip: Alben Barkley and George Dallas.



William King was the third of seven vice
presidents who died in office. He succumbed
to tuberculosis just weeks after his term
began.




Vice President King is not interred
inside the mausoleum, but is
actually buried beneath it.
