Inscription.  
There rests here, in the quiet beauty of the valley of the Ohio, the dust of a young girl.

On July 23, 1823, a wagon train, creaking toward the west came to a halt close by.

When the train moved forward, one of its party had been left along the trail, a hostage against time.

Diana Whitney, sleeping where the morning sun paints with strange scarlets and magic golds the surface of the river, was sixteen on that summer's day long ago.

In a later summer this tablet was placed on Diana Whitney's grave to remind those who pause to read of a humble sacrifice woven into our country's greatness.
