More about this marker. It might be of interest to note that this historical marker is located at an early community cemetery, but at first glance it is easy to miss this feature because initially the gravestone markers are not noticed. However, if one walks a short distance behind the monument you will begin to notice gravestones (many dating back to the mid-1800s) that are horizontal and flat to the surface, rather than vertical.
