    The graves of James Madison's parents are unmarked. But according to records, Col. James Madison, Sr. is buried next to his son, James. James Sr. would be buried just inside the chains in this photo, and just to the left of the base of the obelisk, under which the president is buried. James Sr's wife, Nellie is buried to his left, which would be just under the bare spot in the grass in the center of the photo.
