Judge Berrien's mother was Margaret MaePherson. The Senator was named for her brother John who fell at Quebec, where he was an aide-de-camp on Gen. Montgomery's staff. Mrs. Berrien was never vigorous in health. She died early in life at Baisden's Bluff, then a summer resort, in Mclntosh County, where she was buried on the old Bailey plantation, afterwards the property of Dr. Troup. Her grave is near the old Oglethorpe road, some 12 miles from Darien.The Senator's father is buried in Colonial Park. There, too, in the old cemetery, repose the ashes of his wife, with two of her children. The reason Judge Berrien himself is not there is due to the fact that at the time of his death the old cemetery was closed for burial purposes. Berrien County bears the name of this great orator and statesman. Judge Berrien's only rival for the palm of oratory during his day in Georgia was the gifted John Forsyth, who lived for a time in Savannah but afterwards removed to Augusta. The latter died while Secretary of State, in the cabinet of President Van Buren, and was buried in the Congressional cemetery, in Washington, D. C.

The grave of JOHN MxcPHERSON BEREIEN, eldest son of Major John Berrien, and of Margaret MacPherson. Born at Bockingham, near Princeton, N. J., Aug. 23, 1781. Died at Savannah, Ga., Jan. 1, 1856.On the right side of the column we read:This monument is placed over his ashes by his bereaved and loving children in memory of a life laborious in the discharge of every duty, adorned with every Christian grace, illustrious in the public service, but more glorious in the milder light of those gentle virtues which made his home beautiful and holy and beamed upon all it incircled a love over which the grave can achieve no victory.On the other sides of the monument there are Biblical quotations.
