Long Description:
John Julian's grave is in the Masonic Cemetery on Charles Street in historic Fredericksburg. He served as a surgeon with the VA Continental Line.

Little is known about his service or personal life. A passage in Harold Gill's book, The apothecary in colonial Virginia, notes that Dr. John Julian partnered with Dr. Hugh Mercer at a apothecary shop in Fredericksburg where they practiced medicine and surgery and sold drugs in the 1770s. The outbreak of the Revolutionary War in 1776 ended the business.

Julian's grave is a flush marker in a quiet corner of the cemetery. Compared to the flamboyance of fellow Revolutionary John Minor's raised tomb or even George Weedon's gravemarker, John's simple marker seems indicative of his quiet life.
