On the Montpelier Road in Forsyth at the home place of P. B. Zellner, grandson of W. T. Maynard, can be found a most interesting relic, which attest to the contribution made by the Maynard brothers.

J. B. MAYNARD BURIED AT ROGERS.
The remains of Mr. J. B. Maynard, who died at his home in Dalton Saturday, March 27, were brought to Forsyth the following Monday and were interred in the Rogers church cemetery, near his old home.
Mr. Maynard was in his 81st year, leaving Monroe County in 1888 for Dalton, where he has lived since.
Mr. Maynard was a prominent member of the Methodist church and was also a Mason.
He is survived by his wife and two daughters, Mrs. T. J. Cheves of Cordele and Mrs. M. M. Hathon of Forsyth. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. George W. Griner.
[My Notes. He was buried at the old Maynard Cemetery, not the Rogers Church Cemetery. The daughters mentioned are actually his sisters.]
