1. Jesse James Marker
Inscription. In August 1877, Jesse James, the notorious outlaw, moved to this site from Missouri and rented a farm from N.B. Link. Using the assumed name of J.D. Howard, he engaged in farming and horse racing. He entered one of his horses, Red Fox, in local races and won several competitions. While living here, his wife, Zee, gave birth to twin boys, Gould and Montgomery, who lived only a few days and were buried on this site. In 1879, Jesse and his family moved to Nashville.
