BRICK CHURCH CEMETERY, GILES COUNTY TENNESSEE
The John Gordon memorials inside the fence on our right. His Wife Mary Ann Gordon is on our left. Notice there is also a stone just outside the fence. It is unknown as to who may be interred under that memorial without any inscription if anyone. If it was a headstone the grave in not placed traditionally from the west with the foot pointing eastward.

including the bars.
