James A. Garfield
Birth: Nov. 19, 1831
Death: Sep. 19, 1881

This monument was originally carved to memorialize William Bodey, founder of the town of Bodie. But, when President Garfield was assassinated, the fickle public changed the inscription, turning it into a tribute to Garfield instead. Bodey's grave remained unmarked for almost 100 years. (bio by: Lonnie DeCloedt)
