Inscription. This memorial is in memory of Jacob and Martha Boggs Johnson, and marks the spot where the Indian cabin stood Into which they moved April 1. 1805. With other pioneers they came as the Indians departed and worthily bore their part in subduing the wilderness. They and their direct descendants have occupied this land for a century and this memorial is placed in grateful remembrance.
