In memory of the first person, a young girl whose name is unknown. Buried here about 1760. The story goes that she was visiting the Lesly family and died as a result of injuries sustained while they were making lye soap. John Lesly and his brother, Thomas, who lived not far apart, set off walking from their homes and where they met they established this Lesly graveyard that was later renamed Upper Long Cane Cemetery.

This marker is placed on her grave in 2008 by members of the Upper Long Cane Society, established in 1793 and incorporated in 1799 to provide a permanent fund for the support of the Gospel and works of benevolence among Presbyterians.
