John Burroughs

Birth: Feb. 10, 1793
Death: Sep. 6, 1862

There are two tombstones for John. A smaller white decorative stone which was probably the original stone, and a larger obelisk monument with other family members.

The large gray obelisk monument contains inscriptions on three sides of the shaft. They are for John, his wife Martha, and his mother Letta. I could not tell if the fourth side, which is leaning against the base, had an inscription.

Both monuments in good condition, white stone shows some weathering. Larger obelisk monument in several pieces stacked on top of each other with shaft leaning against the large cement base. Inscriptions difficult to read when sunlight directly upon them.
