A Revolutionary War soldier, came from Virginia to this region of Kentucky around 1798. Many of his descendants are buried in this old burying ground. To their memory we erect this cairn. May those who make the pilgrimage to this site reflect on their good deeds and be grateful for the heritage that has been handed down to them.
