John Adams' gravestone

Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


This photograph shows the large gravestone of John Adams leaning against a tree in the cemetery located about half a mile from the canal near Dargan's Bend. There was also a wagon wheel leaning against the same tree. The cemetery was located on the farm owned by J. L. Johnson at the time the photographs were taken in 1976.

Dr. Dunham noted that this stone, unlike the others in the cemetery, was not cut from local stone, and appears to have been inscribed by a professional stone cutter. There was a diagonal break in it.
