Additional comments.
1. This marker is missing
I have searched for this marker several times through 2008 and cannot find it. I drive past the intersection of Carrs Mill Rd and Roxbury Mill Rd on my way to and from work and after several attempts to find this marker I still cannot locate it. There is a new elementary school (Bushy Park Elementary) where this marker is said to be located and I believe the marker was removed when the school was built. I have found the grave site and combed the area around the marker's supposed location but cannot find it anywhere. Note To Editor only visible by Contributor and editor
