Birth: 1767
Death: Jun. 22, 1806
McIntosh County
Georgia, USA

John Cunningham Esq. was a Loyalist during the American Revolution. He was the son of Loyalist General Robert Cunningham who was exiled to Nassau, New Providence Dist., Bahamas - he had a land grant there from the English king.

John's above-ground crypt is to the left of his sister's, Margaret (Cunningham) Pearis. Their two graves are surrounded by a 3 1/2 ft. tall, brick/stone fence and are two of the three grave markers still remaining in this old cemetery. This visible part of what was a larger cemetery is enclosed by a chain-link fence and gate.
