Gravestone 29 Alfred Makepeace

 Alfred Makepeace, my 4th great grandfather on the Forkner-Clifford line. West Maplewood.

"The Home is located on Lot 3 of the original plat patented by President Monroe in 1823 as Andersontown by William Conner, son-in-law of Chief Kikthawenund (Chief Anderson). Here Captain John Berry built a log cabin. In 1865 Alfred Makepeace erected a dwelling which forms the East wing. In 1871 Moses Cherry started a French Second Empire Townhouse which forms the West wing. Martin Gruenewald finished the Townhouse in 1873."
