Photographs were made of the tombstone of John M. Brown, who was the father in law of Susan Whetsel Brown Rowland, on February 16, 2006, at the Upper Gragg Cemetery, on Bays Mountain. The name and dates are quite readable; the tombstone is in excellent condition; and a scripture verse can be read at the bottom. A park ranger observed that Mr. Brown was well thought of, respected and loved, by family and neighbors, to have been given such a stone. All other graves in the cemetery are marked with a simple fieldstone.
