Tombstone Tuesday: John J. Harper

John J. Harper was laid to rest at the Lax Baptist Church Cemetery in Coffee County, Georgia. His tombstone inscription reads:

John J. Harper
Sept. 23, 1863
Aug. 23, 1891

May his spirit rest in peace

Erected by his Brothers & Sisters

Several tombstone inscriptions from the Lax Baptist Church Cemetery can be read online. Mr. Harper's tombstone is well over one hundred years old, and is still remarkably legible.
