John passed away on Feb 20, 1862 and is buried in Highland Cemetery, Highland County, Ohio, USA. It took us a very long time finding where John was buried at. Finally, a 4X,5X genteration cousin Jay Wright and I were working on entering all those buried at Highland Cemetery. John wife Charlotte's best friend Charlotte Chandler's family is buried in the cemetery. Jay has a copy of the McBride Cemetery book of Highland County where he found a entery showing a John Garman buried at Highland Cemetery. We did some searching and found no Garman's in that area at the time. So I went to the Cemetery again to clean more tombstone hoping to find this stone. While walking the cemetery I stumbled across a stone that was is an area where fallen stones were moved by the cemetery lawn care employees. The stone was a little dirty and I did some cleaning and found the stone. After cleaning it, we found out that it was not a G but a C and it was our John Carman. Unforgently, his wife Charlotte is not showing buried at Highland Cemetery.
