Patterson, told him the following in regard to the history of this property. "It seems that Col. James McMahon was very anxtous to form a cemetery association and tried to interest his neighbors in the matter, but found that most of them were afraid to have anything to do with a cemetery, probably thinking that it would shorten their lives. The only person to subscribe to the fund was Jonathan Cass, who gave $5. This provoked the Colonel, and he purchased the property and deeded it to the Presbyterian church." In 1861 he married Miss Mary E. Chapin. He leaves besides a widow five children. He was buried by the Knights Templar.
