For whatever it is worth, I did attempt to locate the grave of the other Medal of Honor recipient, James H. Lee, but was unable to do so. I did not see where his grave (unlike that of Doctor Mary Walker) was located on the posted Rural Cemetery Map, and I could not locate any cemetery employees to assist me, so I was unable to locate the Lee gravesite. Hopefully, the next time that I am in the area I will be more successful (or someone else can locate and post pictures of the grave on this web page).
