Transcription of news article from Paris "Mercury" 23 JUN 1865 reporting the execution of Jackson in Santa Fe, Missouri: page 1 page 2 page 3

Jackson and Farley are buried behind the modern cemetery in Santa Fe. At the back of the cemetery there is a wide path with a sign saying "Private - Keep Out". A little distance down that path and in the woods to the left is found the burial place.

Photos of the "rock" under which Jackson and Farley are buried. In the closeup you can see the name "Jackson" carved in the stone.
