The tall dark tombstone that is fenced in on the right side of this image is that for J. B. Bostwick, who was born on March 27, 1810, and died on May 3, 1895. These tombstones are located at the far west end of the cemetery, and this view is looking north. The tombstones located to the left of the lane in this image are in the oldest part of the cemetery, adjacent to Coffee Creek.
