Long Description:
John Wilkes Booth was the person who (along with an accomplice) assassinated President Abraham Lincoln at the Ford Theatre in Washington D.C. on April 14, 1865. Here you will find his family plot where his grave remains unmarked. Headstones of his mother, father, and siblings are all located here. It was told to me by the cemetery secretaries that he was previously buried elsewhere, but in some kind of agreement many years later, he was moved to the family plot at Green Mount Cemetery under the condition that his exact location in the plot remain unknown.
