Marker to John Smon Dugan at St Thomas Cem in Zanesville. His remains are actually buried below the church floor downtown. Also a marker for his wife Barbara Caroline Schweitzer who went on to marry Gen. James Taylor after Johns untimely death. Taylor built the Mound House in Duncan Falls, OH. The LDS church says Barbara died and is buried in NY state (Herkimer). Don't know who is correct. John operated the Green Tree tavern in Zanesville until he was killed in a stagecoach accident in 1824 while bringing the first Catholic priest to Zanesville. He operated the tavern/hotel with his brother Peter who is the ancestor for MD Dugan and the other Dugans in this website. The lineage is Peter Dugan, Richard Henry Dugan, Charles Dugan and then Meredith Darlington Dugan.
