The entrance

From the entrance, you would take the outer drive to the right. About half way around you will come to section I, the graves are to the left of this outer drive.

There are three smaller stones behind the stele, next to the large tree. The right one nearest to the tree is Jackson Showalter, the middle one his wife Nellie (see pictures below), the third one his son James.

There are a number of other Showalters buried in this family site:
The parents
Freeman Benoni (!) Showalter (1811-1904) and
Margaret Rachel Whipps Showalter (1819-1905)

The children
Freeman Benoni Showalter (1895-1978)
Infant (1901-1901)
James Watterson Showalter (1906-1936)

Jackson Showalter's year of birth on the stone (1859) is not consistent with the date given in Gaige Chess Personalia (1860)! (R.B.)
