John has several memorials on Find a Grave. Memorial# 42108886 is marked as a Cenotaph, despite the marker claiming that he is buried there.

Memorial# 61607673 is a military marker placed in his hometown church cemetery.

He died at a hospital in Atlanta. Civil War Soldier Record says he was mustered out Feb 13, 1863, but US Veterans Gravesite record says he died Feb 10, 1863.

Additional info sent to me from a descendant: "I was told by Franklin Garrett that since John Turner Barrow died on 10 Feb 1863 of Small Pox he would have been buried quickly and in most likely Oakland Cem. I put the Headstone up in 1991 since he is my 2nd Great Grandfather. I put the headstone next to his wife [Memorial# 61607673] back in 2000 at a Barrow Family Reunion. I hated to see her alone in the graveyard. For whatever reason, In honor of or In memory of was left off. I did have his name placed on a plaque in a Americus, Ga [Memorial# 42108886] but he is not buried there. I was just honoring him."
