JOHNSON-AMIS CEMETERY-CULLEOKA, MAURY COUNTY TENNESSEE
There is actually an old box tomb under the base for the above stone with the vital inscription about Alexander. It also includes a statement that Alexander served as Magistrate of the County mentioned above. Possibly the family later replaced the old box style stone with this upright stone and included Alexander's wife Mary on the above stone on the back side or the side now turned toward the soil. "ALEXANDER JOHNSON Born April 16th 1782 Died February 7th 1857 Aged 74 Years 10 Months and 7 Days."
