Near Charlottesville in Albemarle County, Virginia — The American South (Mid-Atlantic)
The Monticello Graveyard
Carr, who married Jefferson's sister, died in 1773. His was the first grave on this site, which Jefferson laid out as a family burying ground. Jefferson was buried here in 1826.
The present monument is not the original, designed by Jefferson, but a larger one erected by the United States in 1883. Its base covers the graves of Jefferson, his wife, his two daughters, and of Governor Thomas Mann Randolph, his son-in-law.
The graveyard remains the property of Jefferson's descendants, and continues to be a family burying ground.
