Hi, Here is the picture of Charles Rowan Bright's grave. You can also see the memorial marker placed there beside him for Adam. The tall stone is the Peter Bright Family stone, the father of Adam and Charles. The cemetery was started by their grandfather Michael Bright when his wife Barbara died. He took a section of his land to be used for a cemetery. Michael Bright was one of the first to settle in what is now Oakmont,PA.
