This memorial marker of native stone is a tribute to our ancestor and builder of the Old Stone House.
In 1881 Rev. Jethro Rumple wrote in a history of Rowan County
"In the little graveyard walled in with stones, lie the remains of Michael Braun, and his wife, with quite a number of his descendants."
