Andrew Jackson's strong sense of family extended beyond those he embraced during his lifetime.

Reaching into the future to touch generations yet to come, he deeded a small portion of the garden in trust to serve as a family cemetery. Stones mark the graves of sixteen family members, and one family friend. This diagram shows the stones in the same order as they stand before you.
