Photo of McConnell Geddes Cemetery
The Geddes-McConnell Cemetery is within sight of the Geddes Farm. Except for Alexander Walker Geddes, who served under Col. Fonda and is buried where he died on Champion Hill during the siege of Vicksburg, they all lie side by side in the black soil of that prairie place. The home was built in 1866 by Col. John Giles Fonda on land belonging to his father-in-law, James McConnell. The dirt road was called Fonda Lane and it lead to the little village of Fountain Green about a mile away.
