The "J.M." stands for John Motley Morehead - and there were two of them. The first was born in Virginia on July 4, 1796. He was Governor of North Carolina from 1841-1845.

The second John Motley Morehead was born In Charlotte, NC on July 2, 1866, was a Republican and was elected to many political offices but Governor of NC was not listed as one of them. He died Dec. 13, 1923 and is buried in Elmwood Cemetery in Charlotte, NC
