1. Murder of William B. Dulin Marker
Inscription.  In October 1861, William B. Dulin was killed by Southern sympathizers for giving information that led to the arrest of a local secessionist. Dulin was eventually confronted by guerrillas at the home of Samuel McFee, who had raised him and was the father-in-law of the Rebel who was arrested. Dulin surrendered after the attackers set fire to the house, and he was executed nearby.
