John Kirkman's headstone in the Civil War Veteran Section, Visalia District Cemetery, Visalia, Tulare County, California.


*The headstone is of government issue and did not have the birth and death dates on it. My Aunt Jeanne Rose and I had Smitty of Smith Family Chapel in Exeter, California engrave his date of death and birth at the bottom of the stone in January 2005. The engraving was done 98 years after his death.
